I am new to SharePoint and I'm trying to enable a calculated column in a SharePoint list with the following formula but it's not working quite well. It is not throwing me any Optimize nor Test attribute. I have tried everything but I still can't find the error.


I would really appreciate some guidance or if you could point me to the error I am making. Thanks in advance!

  • Is it throwing any error? Are you using correct display names of your columns? Jul 27, 2023 at 5:56
  • Try this: =IF(AND([Column1]<3,[Column2]<3),"Optimize",IF(AND([Column1]>=3,[Column2]<3),"Test",IF(AND([Column1]<3,[Column2]>=3),"Monitor",IF(AND([Column1]>=3,[Column2]>=3),"Improve","")))). Let me know if it works. Jul 27, 2023 at 5:58

Try using this:



=IF([Column1]<3, IF([Column2]<3, "Optimize", "Monitor"), IF([Column2]<3, "Test", "Improve"))


  1. Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (it is based on language or regional settings on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).
  2. Use correct display name of your SharePoint columns in above formula.
  3. Wrap column names inside [] if your column name has space in it. For example: [My Column Name].
