Hi Everyone,

I am needing help with a formula. 

I need it to function as =if "Wet Paint" has check mark, change "Lane Designation" to Wet Paint.

Thanks for the help in advance.

    re: I need it to function as =if "Wet Paint" has check mark, change "Lane Designation" to Wet Paint.

    =IF([Wet Paint]23,"West Paint","")

    in row 23 of [Lane Designation].

    However! If anyone changes [Lane Designation] manually, the formula will be overwritten (gone).

    You will need to (if you can), expand your IF used NESTED IF's. For example

    =IF([Wet Paint]23,"West Paint",IF([Powder Paint]23,"Powder Paint","and so on")

    Order is important - the system checks left to right and then stops when it finds a result. If both of those columns are checked, it will result in "Wet Paint".

    I hope this helps.

    Craig
