I have columns called Refresh Due and Refresh Priority and I want the results in these columns to provide a result in a third column called Priority Order.

Refresh Due is a calculated column that references warranty dates and provides the result- "Due" or "Still Under Warranty".

Refresh Priority is a Yes or No choice column (this column is if I want to prioritize a refresh of an item before its due).

I want Priority order to display 1, 2 or 3, number 1 being top priority

  • Refresh Due = "Due" Refresh Priority = "No" - Result "2"
  • Refresh Due = "Due" Refresh Priority = "Yes" - Result "1"
  • Refresh Due = "Still Under Warranty" Refresh Priority = "Yes" - Result "1"
  • Refresh Due = "Still Under Warranty" Refresh Priority = "No" - Result "3"

I have gone through google searches and suggested links on here but not found a result that works, I have tried the following which gives me one or two results but not all of them.

This one I found online but fails syntax:

=IF([Refresh Due]="Due","2",IF(AND([Refresh Due]="Still Under Warranty",[Priority Refresh]="Yes","1"),IF(AND([Refresh Due]="Due",[Priority Refresh]="Yes","1","3"))))

This one only partially works, will change from 2 to 1 but dependent only on the Refresh Due column, the Refresh Priority has no effect:

=IF([Refresh Due]="Due","2",IF(AND([Refresh Due]="Still Under Warranty",[Priority Refresh]="Yes","1"),IF([Refresh Due]="Due",[Priority Refresh]="Yes","1")))

Try using this formula:

=IF([Refresh Due]="Due",IF([Priority Refresh]="Yes","1","2"),IF([Refresh Due]="Still Under Warranty",IF([Priority Refresh]="Yes","1","2"),""))


=IF([Priority Refresh]="Yes","1",IF([Refresh Due]="Due","2","3"))


  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].
