# Need a formula for the Complexity Score

I have not been succesful trying to create a formula for the Complexity Score (currently shows a total of 9). If it less than 4, it show show ""Low" right below the total, if it is 5-8, it should show "Medium", if it is 9 or greater it should show "In-Depth". Any assistance would be appreciated.

I will just use 10 for the row number where the score is. You may need to change that to fit whatever row it is actually on. I am also assuming that the column name is [Complexity Score]. You may also need to change that to match where in the sheet the number is.

=IF([Complexity Score]10>= 9, "In-Depth", IF([Complexity Score]10>= 5, "Medium", "Low"))

I'm assuming the "9" comes from a SUM formula. If that's the case, you can trying something like this:

`= IF(SUM(Column:Column) <= 4, SUM(Column:Column) + " (Low)", IF(AND(SUM(Column:Column) > 4, SUM(Column:Column) <= 8), SUM(Column:Column) + " (Medium)", IF(SUM(Column:Column) > 8, SUM(Column:Column) + " (High)")))`

Let me know if that works or if you need more help troubleshooting! Happy to provide more assistance 😊

• Thank you for your assistance. Unfortunately, that did not work. I'm sure I am still doing something incorrectly - even with your new formula. Where you have (Column:Column), I replaced that with (Complexity Score:Complexity Score) which is the column name. Was I correct in doing that?

• That did the trick! Thank you so much.

@Don Bruns would you be willing to share this template with me. I'm trying to develop one in SMARTSHEET that I used to use in Excel but I'm also having trouble on how to accomplish that.
