I have found plenty of posts that mentioned how to add multiple conditions to calculated column but my formula is not working. The action is pretty simple that is why I feel like silly that it has taken me forever to figure it out. Here are the conditions. If Column A is greater than 2,000 (text column) and Column B = Agreement (choice column) show "yes". Here is the formula created.

 =IF(Column A)>2,000, IF(Column B)="Agreement"; Yes) 

Can someone help me figure out what is wrong?

    You should use Column A as a number column if you want to store the numbers only. – user80093 Feb 12 '19 at 6:59

You can use VALUE function to convert text to number.

VALUE function Converts a text string that represents a number to a number.



text is the text enclosed in quotation marks or a column reference containing the text you want to convert.

Use below formula(If your Column A field always going to have valid number stored in it):

=IF(VALUE([Column A])>2000,IF([Column B]="Agreement","Yes","No"),"No")

Else, use below formula in case you want handle the error condition when Column A field will not have valid number stored in it:

=IF(ISERROR(VALUE([Column A]))=TRUE,"No",IF(VALUE([Column A])>2000,IF([Column B]="Agreement","Yes","No"),"No"))


  1. Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (I am not sure but it is based on something language on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).

  2. In VALUE function text parameter can be in any of the constant number, date, or time formats. If text is not in one of these formats, VALUE returns the #VALUE! or #Name? error value(to avoid this error, make sure you are entring valid number in Column A).
