Help with formula

Options

Hello All.

Can any of you help me with this formula. I need to add the finish date to display next to the construction phase in the sheet summary. The sheet summary for each month has formula.

Below is the current formula which works and displays what is in the sheet summary. I just want to be able to list the finish date of the const phase.

So on the sheet summary for example on 02 Feb

Start construction 2-6-23

Foundation 2-24-23

Framing 3-21.


Here is the formula for 02 Feb on sheet summary

=IF(Phase1 = "Construction", JOIN(COLLECT([Const Phase]:[Const Phase], [Const Phase]:[Const Phase], @cell <> "", [Finish Date]:[Finish Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) >= 2, [Start Date]:[Start Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) <= 2), CHAR(10)), IF(Phase1 = "Pre Construction", JOIN(COLLECT([Const Phase]:[Const Phase], [Const Phase]:[Const Phase], @cell <> "", [Finish Date]:[Finish Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) >= 2, [Start Date]:[Start Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) <= 2), CHAR(10))))

Any Help would be amazing!

Thanks so much

Jon

    Not exactly the formula but You can do a workaround by adding a Hidden Helper column which basically concatenates the Construction column and the Finish Date column

    Then use your existing formula to fetch the values from the new Helper column instead of the Construction column

    Hi @Jon Barto

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could either add a so-called helper column that collects the Stage and Date and then update your formula to reference that instead, or you could duplicate the formula and add a +" - "+ between them and edit it so it collects the date instead.

    Which method would you prefer?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    When I try to do the helper column. It displays the const phase name and date... but it also is displaying the time.

    How do I have it not display the time?

    For example it says : Foundation 02/24/23 8:59 am

    Here is formula I have for the helper row:

    =[Const Phase]@row + " " + [Finish Date]@row

    @Jon Barto

    Try something like this.

    =[Const Phase]@row + " " + DATEONLY([Finish Date]@row)
