    Hello,

    I would like to create a formula that searches a cell in column B that contains "***patient subtotal," and then returns a number in column A if that formula is true. However, I would like there to sequential numbers in rows below where the formula is true.

    For example
    Column A Column B
    1 ***patient subtotal
    2 ***patient subtotal
    3 ***patient subtotal

    I used the formula below, but it doesn't work. May you please help me?


    =IF((SEARCH("***patient subtotal",B22)),ROW())*1-countif($B$22:B22,0))),"***patient subtotal","")


    Thanks!
