    Hi vstr88889,

    Can you please share some screenshots of the formula you want to convert to the column formula for context?

    Thank you,

  • First of all thanks for the quickest reply I figured out the solution: the formula column would turn gray when I clicked on an empty cell, but it would work if I typed in the formula.

    Thank you.
