## Mapping account type

11 - Bolide

Dear community,

I would like to ask how do we create formula in order to get the result as below:

If the account start with number of 2 series, then the type will be BS

if the account start with any letters and follow by the number of 2 series , then the type will be BS

if the account start with any letters and follow by the number of 9 series, then the type will be Control

if the account start with any letters and follow by the number of 1 series, then the type will be BS

if the account start with any letters and follow by the number of 3 series, then the type will be BS

If the account start with number of 9 series, then the type will be Control

If the account start with number of 4 series, then the type will be PL

if the account start with any letters and follow by the number of 4 series, then the type will be PL

Thank you

Hi @binuacs ,

Many thanks for the prompt response. Can u briefly explain how do i read this formula :

IIF(Substring([Account],1,1) IN('1','2','3')

Thank you.

@SH_94 The substring function will return the string based on the start position and the length. In this example, the starting position and the length are 1, so it will return the second letter from the string because the Substring function always starts from 0.

IIF(Substring([Account],1,1) IN('1','2','3') - the substring functions returns the second character from the string Account and checks whether it is in 1,2 or 3
