I am trying to create a working formula to display remaining savings to end of project. I am using the formula below and seeing and "UNPARSEABLE" error, of course. I'm terrible at these but trying to get better at it. Please help.

=([Current Cost]@row-((([projected # of lines])*50.95) *[remaining project months]@row))

What I am trying to do:

Projected Savings to project end = ([Currrent Cost] minus ([projected # of lines] times 50.95)) then multiply by [remaining projects months]

Is it possible to create one formula to generate the result? Thank you, in advance, for your help.

    Hi @Lisa Matthews,

    You're just missing an @row for your projected # of lines. Your formula should be:

    =[Current cost]@row - (([Projected # of lines]@row * 50.95) * [Remaining project months]@row)

    Hope this helps, if you've any questions etc. then just post! 😊
