I've tried to create a calculated column in a SharePoint list that looks for a word in the title of the list entry and then returns yes or no based on if that word is included in the title or not.


All of the items that have the word in the title return "yes" as expected, however the items that should return "no", actually return as "#VALUE!" and I am not sure how to solve this.

Adding ISERROR let's you display something else than the error message. "SEARCH" is better than "FIND" as "FIND" is case sensitive and doesn't allow wildcard characters.
