I need to filter out the items in a list that contain numbers 5,6,7 if they are in the 7th position within the tracking number. I know you can do this in Excel, but can you do this in a workflow or through a calculated column?

I really would want If Tracking Number contains 5,6,7 than update Use column to Yes. I know this is confusing. Please help!


You can set up a Yes/No calculated field with the following formula.


Just change "Title" to your Tracking Number field.

  • Now working on another column. What if I need a contains command instead of an = ? – Lana Chloe Jun 28 '16 at 22:09
  • So contains 5,6,7 but doesn't need to be in the 7th position? – Ramana Viswanadha Jun 29 '16 at 12:51
