Formatting columns imported from Excel
Joanna C.
✭✭✭
I made a Smartsheet off of an Excel document. Several columns are marked X in a text format to indicate YES to a question. I'd like to use a checkbox instead. I created a column that has checkboxes next to the first of these types of columns. How can I create a formula that is if column A has "X", then check the box in column B.
Thanks.

You would use a basic IF statement.
=IF([Column A]@row = "X", 1)
