Cannot add cell values generated by formula
I have tried to add cell values to each other, where they are created by a formula they just add to each other ie.
column 1 cell 1= 1
column 2 cell 1 = 2
total = 12 (should be 3)!!!!
what formula should I use?
Thanks

Hi @Dan Harris ,
Smartsheet is treating your cells as text instead of numbers. If you can't figure out why, use the VALUE() function to correct it. In your cells start the formula with =VALUE(...)
