# At Risk Sheet Summary

I am hoping to create a sheet summary formula that will flag a something as "at risk" if it is past five days since the date in row 1 of the "Oldest App on Hand" column. I need it to only pull from that one cell, and be indexed to row one as more rows are added over time.

Thank you in advance for any help!

First, to determine Row1, I would add two helper columns, [Row ID] (Auto-Number) and [Row No]. If you add a new row at the top, as you would with a form, you can not use [Row ID] to determine the row position, so we use the MATCH function to get the [Row No].

[Row No] = MATCH([Row ID]@row, [Row ID]:[Row ID], 0)

Then, you can get [Oldest App On Hand]@row1 with this formula;

INDEX(COLLECT([Oldest App on Hand Entered]:[Oldest App on Hand Entered], [Row No]:[Row No], 1), 1)

The condition, "if it is past five days since the date in row 1 of the "Oldest App on Hand" column" is as follows;

TODAY() - [Oldest App On Hand]@row1 >5

TODAY() >[Oldest App On Hand]@row1 + 5

So, the formula to populate the At Risk Flag in the summary field is as follows;

[At Risk] =IF(TODAY() > INDEX(COLLECT([Oldest App on Hand Entered]:[Oldest App on Hand Entered], [Row No]:[Row No], 1), 1) + 5, 1, 0)

I created the At Risk field as a text/number, inputted the formula, and then converted it to a symbol, as entering a formula into a symbol field was difficult.
