I'm trying to write a simple formula but receiving an error. Help?
If two columns are the same then return "No"
=IF([Estimated number of participants]@row=[Confirmed Anticipated Volume]@row, “No”, “Yes”)

Hi @Connie Cochran The formula you provided seems correct. However, the error you encountered might be due to the usage of smart quotes (“ ”) instead of regular quotation marks (" ").
Here's the corrected formula:
=IF([Estimated number of participants]@row = [Confirmed Anticipated Volume]@row, "No", "Yes")
HTH!
