I have a smartsheet that has a column for "State" and then a column for "Territory". How do I write a function that if a row within column "State" equals say "TX" than the column for "Territory" within the same row = "West". I would need to do this for all states broken into 4 or 5 territories.

    Here's one way to do it.

    Have a reference area (or another sheet with the list of states and their territories) and then use this type of formula:

    =INDEX([Territory Ref]:[Territory Ref], MATCH(State@row, [State Ref]:[State Ref], 0))

    I hope this helps you.

    Thank you so much Ramzi! Would that whole formula go in the state column or in the territory column?

    Hi @Amy Shank

    It would go in the Territory column because the formula is looking for the match from the State column.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
