Convert to Column Formula Issue
Hi
I use the following formula =((Applications1 / [Employee Count]1) * 12) * 10 to calculate a figure from two columns. But when I right click to Convert to Column Formula" it errors and says The column formula syntax isn't quite right? What am I missing?
Thanks
Chris

Hello Chris
Column Formulas do not allow references to specific row numbers that is the syntax the error refers to . Convert your column references (ex. Applications1) to @row
=((Applications@row / [Employee Count]@row) * 12) * 10
