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!
