Check a box based on another cell not being blank



Looking for a way to check a box in column 2 based on column 1 not being blank.

I've found variations on this theme, but nothing that quite gets me what I am looking for.

Column 1 = Delivery Date

Column 2 = check box

I want column 2 to "automatically" be checked if a column 1 has a date populated / is no longer blank.

I could also do this (if easier) if there is something in column 1 (#no match) until column 1 has a date, but I'd prefer not to do this if the above is possible.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

    Hi @Nancy Heater

    To add to David’s excellent advice.

    Here's a third option.

    =IF([Delivery Date]@row="",1,0)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Hi @Andrée Starå !!!

    To carry on with this theme, can we do the same thing, but have it based on (2) sets of data?

    Check Box if both instances below are applicable:

    Delivery Date = not blank + Route Mapped = not blank

    Thanks as always for your assistance!!!
