same formula is not working in different columns

Hi Experts,


I use the same formular on different columns of my sheet. BUT in one column I get the wrong results.

Here works perfectly and shows the red, green, yellow dots when it's needed,

=IF([Dev sample needed?]@row = "", "", IF(OR([Planned ex-factory date]@row = "", [Actual ex-factory date]@row = ""), "Yellow", IF([Actual ex-factory date]@row < DATE(2021, 11, 2), "Green", "Red")))

Here it shows the correct results only in the first cell of the column. On the other cells it show a yellow, red or green dot also when the [Dev sample needed?] is not empty (flagged).

=IF([AC-T sample needed?]@row = "", "", IF(OR([Planned ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row = "", [Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row = ""), "Yellow", IF([Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row < DATE(2021, 11, 2), "Green", "Red")))

What cause the issue?

Thanks

Christine

    The following formula after i added a condition for the Red ball and show Empty if Flag is not checked.

    =IF(AND(OR([Planned ex-factory date]@row = "", [Actual ex-factory date]@row = ""), 
    [Dev sample needed?]@row = 1), "Yellow", IF(AND([Actual ex-factory date]@row 
    < DATE(2021, 11, 2),[Dev sample needed?]@row = 1), "Green", 
    IF(AND([Dev sample needed?]@row = 0,[Actual ex-factory date]@row = ""),"", 
    IF(AND([Dev sample needed?]@row = 1,[Actual ex-factory date]@row <> "", 
    [Planned ex-factory date]@row <> "",[Actual ex-factory date]@row >= DATE(2021, 11, 2)), 
    "Red"))))

    Hi @Christine Menke

    Hope you are fine, please try the following formula:

    =IF(ISBLANK([AC-T sample needed?]@row),"", 
    IF(OR(ISBLANK([Planned ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row) , 
    ISBLANK([Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row), "Yellow", 
    IF([Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row < DATE(2021, 11, 2), "Green", "Red")))

  • Thanks @Bassam Khalil

    it seems not to work.

    I get an error : Incorrect Argument Set


    I have updated it to this :

    =IF(ISBLANK([AC-T sample needed?]@row), "", IF(OR([Planned ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row = "", [Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row = ""), "Yellow", IF([Actual ex-factory date AC-T samples]@row < DATE(2021, 11, 2), "Green", "Red")))

    and it still shows yellow, red or green dot also when the [Dev sample needed?] is not blank(flagged).

    Thanks
