I would like to create a formula that will insert a fixed percentage based off column values, for example if the 1st Qtr debt goal for Jan is 1000 I want a Fixed % to be conditionally added to the Qtr% based of "The Qtr and Month" Not sure of the syntax need to complete this formula, any suggestions?

example column values Qtr (1st, 2nd,or 3rd) Goal (Debt, Income) Month ( Jan-Dec) Qtr% (1.5)

example formula =IF([Qtr]=1st+[Goal]=Debt+[Month]=Oct[Qtr%]=1.5


Your syntax will look something like this (you will need to tweak it to meet your exact requirement):


This reads as:

IF Qtr is 1st AND Goal is same as Debt AND month is January THEN set this column to 1.5 ELSE set it to 0.

EDIT: You might have already worked this out, but if you have a month column in the list then your formula will look like this:

=IF(AND([Qtr]=1,[Goal]=Debt,[Month]='Oct' ),1.5,0)

  • True. OP should consider how this will affect the solution. – Submits Mar 2 '15 at 20:12
  • So use the date from either the Created column or a user defined Date – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Mar 3 '15 at 20:14
