How do I combine two separate formulas into one cell?

Answered - Pending Review


Column name is "Total Enrollment"

Formula 1 (Currently already in the column): =COUNTIF({Class ID}, [Class ID]@row)

The formula has a Reference sheet.

Formula 2 (which I want to add in the same column): =SUM([Total Enrollment]@row - [Waitlisted]@row)

(Basically I want the cell to exclude the Waitlisted lines from the Reference sheet).

I get an #INSEPARABLE error when I try to do it like =COUNTIF({Class ID}, [Class ID]@row) + " " + =SUM([Total Enrollment]@row - [Waitlisted]@row)

Am I doing this incorrectly, or is it actually not possible to combine the formulas? Or is there another way to exclude something in my Total Enrollment column without having to use a second formula?

    Hi @Tanya

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can't reference the same cell the formula is in.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
