# IF then statement

edited 12/09/19

Hi,

Fairly new to smartsheet, I am looking to do the following:

If 'Drop Down A' is set to 'No', then set 'Date Column B' = 'Date Column A + 30'

If 'Drop Down A' is set to 'No', then set 'Date Column D' = 'Date Column A + 14'

If 'Drop Down A' is set to 'No', then set 'Date Column E' = 'Date Column A + 7'

Appreciate the help!

Thank you,

Deepthi

An example of what you are describing is below. The formulas have to go in the locations you want the result in.

Formula in Date Column B

=If([Drop Down A]@row ="No",[Date Column A]@row + 30

Formula in Date Column D

=If([Drop Down A]@row ="No",[Date Column A]@row + 14

Formula in Date Column E

=If([Drop Down A]@row ="No",[Date Column A]@row + 7

The next question to ask would be: What do you want the date columns to have if the answer is yes?

• Thank you for your response. I generated a report and set the criteria to pull this into my dashboard. Didn't end up using If statement.

Okay sounds good.
