How to include Paranthesis in formula.
I am using an IF formula in a Total column
Column A
A) Option 1
B) Option 2
Total Column
= IF ([Column A]@row = "A) Option 1" , "3", IF([Column A]@row = "B) Option 2" , "5"))
 I am getting error, as ) is prematurely closing out the computation.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you,

You need to put a final "ELSE" clause in that nested IF( statement. Something like:
= IF ([Column A]@row = "A) Option 1" , "3", IF([Column A]@row = "B) Option 2" , "5", FALSE))
Replace that FALSE with whatever you would like to appear if it is not either of those things.

Hi Zachary,
Thank you for your response. My issue is with: = IF ([Column A]@row = "A) Option 1" , "3", IF([Column A]@row = "B) Option 2" , "5"))
If I use: = IF ([Column A]@row = "A. Option 1" , "3", IF([Column A]@row = "B. Option 2" , "5"))  I do Not get error. However, if I use "A)" I am getting error with ")".
Thank you,
Deepthi
