How to include backslash in text formula


I am attempting to build a file path including backslashes using a formula.


Desired results: domain\folder\subfolder\file

Smartsheet formula I'm using: =[Domain]@row + "Folder\subfolder\file"

Results = DomainFoldersubfolderfile

Any ideas?

    Hi @Andy Lorance

    Try something like this.

    Add a so-called helper column.

    You can call it directory and add the following: \Folder\subfolder\file

    Then you'll use this formula as the main one.

    =Domain@row + Directory@row

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
