# IF OR NOT ISBLANK

✭✭✭

I am trying to write a column formula to return a value of "Yes" if certain criteria are met but am struggling to understand what I am doing wrong.

I need the column Removed From Respirator Program to change to Yes when

• Expiration date is not blank; and
• Expiration date is one day past todays date; or
• when Do you need to renew your respirator qualification is answered No

Here is my last attempt before reaching out here. I have tried several iterations but nothing has worked for me yet. This halfway works but not the part of Do you need to renew your respirator qualification = No.

=IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK([Expiration Date]@row)), OR([Do you need to renew your respirator qualification]@row = "No", [Expiration Date]@row <= TODAY(-1))), "Yes", "")

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

You can give this a shot and see if it works for you:

=IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK([Expiration Date]@row)), OR([Do you need to renew your respirator qualification]@row = "No", [Expiration Date]@row = TODAY() + 1)), "Yes", "")

This formula checks if:

1. Expiration Date is not blank
2. Either "Do you need to renew your respirator qualification" is answered "No"
3. Or, Expiration Date is one day past today
