Hi - I'm trying to get the 'Project/Phase Health' column to change to YELLOW if I have 1 to 2 'At Risk' task, but to be GREEN if all task have empty 'at risk'. I tried to SUM the 'At Risk' column as I thought 'At Risk' = "Yes" means that the cell had "1" in in (equivocably).


What's the formula to say that IF(SUM of 'At Risk' Column <> 0 then "Yellow" in the red/yellow/green column)?

    Hi @Zach Zalowitz 

    Hope you are fine, please try the following formula and convert it to column format formula:

    =IFERROR(IF([At Risk]@row = 0, "Green", IF([At Risk]@row > 2, "Red", "Yellow")), "")

    the following screenshot shows the result:

  • Hi - Appreciate this answer, but it answers for the cell-by-cell equation. I'm trying to find a range of cells, and if the At-Risk flag SUM's up for those, that (only at one main heading row) I change the 'health' of that phase of the project. Is there a way to SUM ?
