# Can I over ride a column formula for some row?

Options
✭✭✭

I have a grid to track periodic review of documents. Most documents must be reviewed every year, but some can be reviewed every two years.

My column formula is [Effective Date]@row + 365.

Can I put [Effective Date]@row + 730 in the rows where that would be true?

Thank you,

Lynn

Add a checkbox column called "Two Years" and change the formula to

=[Effective Date]@row + IF([Two Years]@row = 1, 730, 365)

Then check the box on any of the documents that are reviewed every two years.

Thank you so much! What does "=1" do in the formula?

"=1" is checking to see if the check box is checked.

Checked = 1

Unchecked = 0

I hope you're well and safe!

Unfortunately, it's not possible now, but it's an excellent idea!

Please submit this as a Product Feedback or Idea (If it hasn't been added already) when you have a moment.

Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

• Add a so-called helper column and update the formula so that it overrides the standard value if it's populated.

Would that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
