How do I check a cell for a particular string?

For instance, I want to see if the contents of cell A1 is “Tempo” (without the quotes) or not. In another cell I have tried things like =EXACT(A1;“Tempo”) but this doesn’t work: it returns FALSE even when A1 contains the word Tempo.

What’s the secret to doing this?

Works for me ( Make very sure that you didn’t type any spaces after the word in A1. The EXACT function only yields True when the two parameters are exactly the same, case sensitively.
