Index Collect First Value from A Column


Hi All,

Having trouble with index collect, I have a formula in a cell that I've added +"" to make it a text (Sprint Planning) and under Planning Header am trying to have a formula that essentially states:

If the sprint value column is not empty, then return the first text value

=IF([Sprint Planning ]@row<>"",INDEX(COLLECT([Sprint Planning ]:[Sprint Planning ],[Sprint Planning ]@row<>'',1)

    Of course I figured it out after searching and playing around with the formula, for anyone curious this is what worked:=INDEX(COLLECT([Sprint Planning ]:[Sprint Planning ], [Sprint Planning ]:[Sprint Planning ], @cell <> ""), 1, 1)
