If Statement just not working

Options

i'm struggling with the if statement in general. I have the following set up in my sheet

Configuration Column - drop down to allow 4 choices (90, 180, 270, 360)

Overall Length - needs to take choice from drop down and have a formula apply depending on the answer (formula applied is using a result from another calculated column - Belt Length Tier)

Belt Length Tier - calculated field

I've tried to just simplify the formula and only have it look for 1 choice and can't get the if statement to work.

this is what i have so far:

=if[Configuration]@row=90,[Belt Length Tier]*0.25,0

on its own [Belt Length Tier]*0.25 formula works, but as soon as I par it with the if formula I receive the dreaded #UNPARSEABLE

I even tried just trying out the if statement with a real easy result, with total failure.

=if[Configuration]@row=90,"YES","NO"

I have moved parentheses around so much, I'm not even sure that is my problem.

Thanks for the help

    Hi Liz,


    Try this and let me know if it works.

    =if([Configuration]@row=90,[Belt Length Tier]@row*0.25,0)

    The above IF statement translates to: If the configuration on this row is equal to 90, multiply the Belt Length Tier on this row times 0.25. Otherwise, display 0.


    Thanks,

    Heather

    I'm sorry but that doesn't work. It is exactly as I had it. Like I mentioned above, even the "yes","no" isn't working either for the true/false response

    Did you ever have one of those ah-ha moments?!! Well I just did. I didn't name the column correctly in my calculation. Now it works. Thanks for the help though.
