Hello everyone! I have an email address column. I want to create a formula column that will search each email domain for a specific text string; if that specific string exists, the formula column will print a pre-determined ID (also as a text/string). To illustrate:

If an email address comes from abcd@paypal.com, input “PAYPAL” into the formula column. If an email address comes from zyxw@vrbo.com, input “VRBO.” I’ve tried combinations of Nested IF statements, SEARCH and FIND formulas, etc. but I’m stuck and would appreciate help. Here’s a screenshot showing the end result I’m looking for.

IF(
    FIND("@apple.com", {Email}),
    "APPL",
IF(
    FIND("@beaniebabies.com", {Email}),
    "BNBB",
IF(
    FIND("@century21.com", {Email}),
    "CENT",
IF(
    FIND("@dairyqueen.com", {Email}),
    "DRQN"
))))

This could also be done using REGEX_EXTRACT() to pick out the email domain, and SWITCH() based on that to set the ID:

IF(
    Email,
    SWITCH(
        REGEX_EXTRACT(Email, "@.*"),
        "@apple.com", "APPL",
        "@beaniebabies.com", "BNBB",
        "@century21.com", "CENT",
        "@dairyqueen.com", "DRQN"
    )
)
