If, and, or statements

Options

Hi

I'm new to Smartsheets and struggling to update my Overall Status depending on the status of Financials, EHS and Tech Qual

If all three are Approved or N/A then Overall Status = Approved

If at least 1 is In Progress or blank then Overall Status = In Progress

If at least 1 is Not Approved then the Overall Status = Not Approved


Thanks for your help

    formula for "Overall status"

    =IF(CONTAINS("NOT APPROVED", [FINANCIALS STATUS]@row:[TECH QUAL STATUS]@row), "Not Approved", IF(CONTAINS("IN PROGRESS", [FINANCIALS STATUS]@row:[TECH QUAL STATUS]@row), "in progress", "Approved"))

    Hi Andrew

    Wow, you made that look so easy 😀

    Just one last rule..

    I need all 3 to have a value of "Approved" or "N/A" before the Overall status = "Approved"

    Thanks for your help
