## Find text annd exclude certain strings

Hi, I want to find the string withing my column and exlude if certain strings are present. I use the following code:

Lookup= IF (ISBLANK ( SEARCH ( "Ronaldo", Table[Column], 1, BLANK () ) ),
"",
"Ronaldo"
)

It gives me Ronaldo or NULL values but I want to exclude when Messi or/and Pogba are present in the string Table[Column].

you can add the add and or condition to your if statement (for and use && and for or use ||)

If you explain what is your logic, will get you the expression.
