I am trying to add the same base equation to a counterparts sheet which is almost identical to mine, but has slightly different column names. We are trying to create a "Biweekly Sum" column that sums the "Grand Total" / "Talent Paid" linking "Vendor Name or Slack Name" / "Pet Parent CP Name" or "Supplier Number" / "Vendor Number" with the same "Payment Period" / "Invoice Number". The equations have the same format and seem to be linking to the sheet but theirs outputs with #INVALID VALUE.

    Hi @mpajuelo

    I hope you're well and safe!

    The main issue (it seems) is that you have one or more error messages elsewhere that are being referenced in the formula.

    Was that the issue?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

  • Thank you, the error was there was no value in the "Talent Paid" column. I had to add to my equation in that column that if the "Number of Pets" column was blank then this column is to equal 0.
