Is it possible to change the value of a certain cell using code in another cell.

I would imagine it looking similar to this format..

IF([email protected]=X, different_cell=XX, different_cell=XXX)



Hi Logan,

Yes, it's possible! How would you like to use it?

Hope that helps!

Have a fantastic day!

In the end I would like to have a function that tests "if" [column1]@row=1 then [columnX]@row=[columnX]@row-1


Testing if a condition is true, if it is then assigning the value of a cell to be the value of the cell directly above it.

BUT because of how I am gathering the data in forms, this formula cannot be put in the cell that is getting changed, it needs to be in a different cell or if there is some kind of script function I could run..

You would need to add at least one so-called helper column, and if I understand your need correct, you won't need to script anything to make it work.

Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
