How to return a blank entry if column contains no data


Hi! I'm new(ish) to Smartsheet and am struggling with what I believe is a simple formula.

I have a simple rating column in an existing sheet with a 1-5 ranking (1 being low, 5 being high). If the rating is 1, I want my "re-hire" column to spit back a "NO" entry. If it's greater than 1, I wanted it to spit back a "YES" entry. And if it's blank, I want the cell to remain blank.

I've figured out the first chunk of the formula, but I am struggling with how to incorporate a blank entry.

Here's what I have so far:

=IF(([PRODUCER RATING]@row < 2), "NO", "YES")

I'm unsure if I need to incorporate the IFAND, IFOR, IFERROR, IFBLANK... or something else entirely.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi Andrew Ryback,

    As per your condition, you can try the below formula:

    =IF(Rating@row = 1, "NO", IF(Rating@row > 1, "YES", " "))

    I hope it will work!

    Thank You!
