Column Adding up to a certain number
Hello, we are using Smartsheet to process our annual merit for all employees.
We have a column for Increase Amount  which will be a number value that the employees salary is being increased by. Since each manager will have a budget for their area, is there a way to set a trigger that if the values in that column go over a certain amount (say, 50,000) that it can flag the column? We are trying to find a way so the manager is aware they have gone over budget.

=IF([Increase Amount]@row > 50000 , "Yes", "No") or =IF([Increase Amount]@row > 50000, "🚩", "👍")

Oh, so not the row?
=IF(SUM([Increase Amount]:[Increase Amount]) > 50000, "Yes", "No")
