# Looking to get some insight on a formula

Options
edited 09/14/23

Trying to write a formula so that if A is no then B would be complete and if A is yes then it would be Not Started, I would still need to have the functionality of the drop downs for people to use. Cant seem to find the best way to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @Bwoods113,

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

```=IF([Assigned To]63 = "Yes", "Not Started", "Complete")
```

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

This is what I was thinking but it doesn't work.
