SUM of columns that have IF formuals


Hoping someone can help me.

I have four columns that I am trying to sum up using the sum function. The four columns do have IF functions in them. I keep getting a return of zero. I added two screen shots the first one has the sum formula I am using and the second one has the if formulas that are in the columns that I am trying to sum up the total that is returned.

    Remove the quotes around your numbers in the formula. Quotes around numbers turns them into text.


    Correct: =IF([CHANGE RATING]@row = "Medium/Standard", 5, 0)

    Incorrect: =IF([CHANGE RATING]@row = "Medium/Standard", "5", 0)
