I have a List with multiple columns and want to do validation on 2 columns based on the value of a drop-down list and want to do validation on the list with the following conditions.

Column 1 ( Type ) if value ( others ) is selected then the field shouldn't be blank

Column 2 ( Location ) if value ( others ) is selected then the field shouldn't be blank

I am able to do only one condition at a time with this formula:

=IF([Type]="Others",IF([Other Type]="",FALSE,TRUE),TRUE)

Can you advise what will be the formula that will have both conditions?

  • Are you trying to make one field mandatory for both conditions or two separate fields? Mar 15, 2022 at 5:22

If you are trying to make the single field ([Other Type]) mandatory based on both conditions, you can use formula like:

=IF(OR([Type] = "Others", [Location] = "Others"), IF([Other Type] = "", FALSE, TRUE), TRUE)

If you are trying to make the two separate fields ([Other Type], [Other Location Type]) mandatory based on both conditions, you can try formula like:

=IF(OR(AND([Type] = "Others", [Other Type] = ""), AND([Location] = "Others", [Other Location Type] = "")), FALSE, TRUE)
