Hi team – I have the following columns:

I want to only have the RISK AGE column show a number (count of days) if the STATUS = ACTIVE.

If the STATUS = INACTIVE then the RISK AGE column needs to be blank.

Column configurations:

• STATUS – drop down menu (Active, Inactive)
• DATE RISK IDENTITIED – date
• DATE OF LAST RISK REVIEW – date
• Risk Age – formula currently used: =IF(ISBLANK([Date Risk Identified*]1), "", IF([Risk Status*]1 = "closed", "", IF(ISBLANK([Date of Last Risk Review*]1), TODAY() - [Date Risk Identified*]1, TODAY() - [Date of Last Risk Review*]1)))
• This appears to be working as needed HOWEVER, Smartsheet will not allow me to convert the column to a formula

Appreciate the help on this.

Hi @jmo

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this. (you can't have specific row references in a column formula)

=IF(ISBLANK([Date Risk Identified*]@row), "", IF([Risk Status*]@row = "closed", "", IF(ISBLANK([Date of Last Risk Review*]@row), TODAY() - [Date Risk Identified*]@row, TODAY() - [Date of Last Risk Review*]@row)))

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic week!
