    Hi n0m4d,

    Assuming the column name references are correct, then your second formula should work fine:

    =[Skupaj ure za tekoči mesec]1 * [Urna postavka]1

    They are both numbers obviously? You're not trying to multiply "Green" x 12/01/18 or anything right?

    Kind regards,

    Chris McKay

    Hey,

     

    values were ok, but figured out just now, while I had copied it from excel there had to be some kind of error, deleted the whole column and rewrote values, now it is working.

    Good stuff buddy. Glad it worked out. I know how frustrating it can be when these sorts of things seem right, but just aren't.

    Kind regards,

    Though Chris fixed it for you he failed to mention that column names with spaces or that end in numerals must be placed in brackets. That is why you weren't getting the results you were looking for.

    Thanks Mike,

    As the second example formula provided by n0m4d was correctly contained in brackets, I considered it a moot point so left it out. But in hindsight, it's a relevant tip to include.

    I'm not going to take any credit for fixing this one either as n0m4d did all the troubleshooting.

    Kind regards,

    Chris McKay

    No intruding at all good buddy. We all miss things and it's nice that the community is robust enough that there are loads of people willing to help smiley.
