I have a If statement in L95 as follows: IF(L95="District Did Not Investigate" and L95 contains this statement It returns a FALSE answer when the answer should be TRUE. WHY?

Most likely there's an extra space in the text in L95 or a change of case somewhere. One way to get around this would be to change your formula to start

That should give the right result whether or not there are extra spaces around the text or the case is incorrect.
