Formula Help


Trying to get this formula to work and have tried every which way, but keep getting unparseable. I would like to add the outcome in the helper columns to equate to the CareKit Name. So CK Type Helper + Educational Language Helper + BP Cuff Size Helper = Blood Pressure Kit (English) OR Blood Pressure Kit (Spanish), UNLESS BP Cuff Size Helper is Extra Large Cuff then the CareKit Name is "Extra Large Cuff 16.5" - 18.75""

So there are three outcomes: Blood Pressure Kit (English), Blood Pressure Kit (Spanish), Extra Large Cuff 16.5" - 18.75"

    I think the problem is stemming from the use of the " mark after 16.5 and 18.75. Smartsheet interprets that as an open or closed quote mark within the formula instead of to mean "inches."

    I tried removing those marks from the column and the formula and was able to get a valid result:

    =IF(CONTAINS("Extra Large Cuff", [BP Cuff Size Helper]@row), "Extra Large Cuff", IF(ISBLANK([BP Cuff Size Helper]@row), [CK Type Helper]@row + "-" + [Educational Language Helper]@row + "-" + [Blood Pressure Cuff Size]@row))
