# Unparseable

Hi,

I'm trying assign a number to the \$ symbol.

I'm using this formula:

=IF(6_state_\$ = "Empty", 0, 6_state_\$ = "One", 1, IF(6_state_\$ = "Two", 2, IF(6_state_\$ = "Three", 3, IF(6_state_\$ = "Four", 4, IF(6_state_\$ = "Five", 5, 0))))))

But it comes back with unparseable. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance!

Can you maybe share some screenshots of your column names? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

Hi Lenya, assuming that 6_state_\$ is a reference to a cell, try enclosing it in square brackets [ ] also, I'm not seeing a reference to the row number. For example [6_state_\$]5 (with 5 being row 5. Or try using @row for the two number.

Hope this helps. If not, please include a screen shot.

Cheers,

I've tried adding square brackets and a reference row number, but I'm still getting the unparseable.

Here is a screenshot for you. Is there anything else I should do?
