=IF Function Returns Invalid Column Value Error?
Options
Hello, I'm trying to return "True" if the number of days in another column is less than or equal to 5, and "False" if not. The formula I'm using is =IF([Working Days]@row <=5, true, false). It's returning an "Incorrect Column Value" but the column is set to text/number so I'm not sure why that is.

@Ktaylor Trying adding Quotation marks around True and False.
=IF([Working Days]@row <=5, "true", "false")

You will need to put quotes around "true" and "false" if you are dropping them into a text/number type column so that they are text strings. Without the quotes they are boolean values (checked vs unchecked) in a nonboolean type column. It is like trying to put a date into a checkbox column.
