In adding an item to the list/library. I want to make Actual(Hrs) field required if only the Status input is Completed

enter image description here

enter image description here

  • Tried the above code with the Category field when it is "Meeting", if Meeting is chosen than the All Day Event must not be empty =IF(Category="Meeting",AND(NOT(ISBLANK([All Day Event]))),TRUE) When I tried to save this error came up One or more column references are not allowed, because the columns are defined as a data type that is not supported in formulas. Help please Jul 5 '17 at 5:58

You can keep the below text in List Validation settings. You check your field name properly while keeping the validation Status, Actual(Hrs)


Validation message Actual(Hrs) should not be blank

  • I thought that column validation can not be based on other columns.

  • check your list column names properly. Status, Actual(Hrs). may be some space or any other characters exist. I can see in the screen shot Actuals (hrs). change this in the formulae Jun 20 '17 at 10:44
