Excel FunctionsExcel FIND Function

Find function Excel


The FIND function is used to return the location of the specific character/ word(s)/ text, within a text string. Unlike the SEARCH function, the FIND function is case sensitive.


The FIND function’s syntax has the following arguments:

  • Within_text Required.

The text/word(s)/ character being looked for. Remember to enter the correct case of the text as the FIND function looks for case-sensitive values. 

  • Within_text Required

The text string containing the text.

  • Start_num Optional

Specifies the character at which to start the search. The first character in within_text is character number 1. If you omit start_num, it is assumed to be 1.
