    Your SUM syntax is SUM(number1, [number2, ​...]), and it should be inside your IF, not outside. The IF syntax is IF(logical expression, true condition, false condition).

    Try this:

    =IF(SUM([Reel Stop]@row, [Quantity Placed]@row, [Quantity Scrapped]@row) = [Reel Start]@row, "YES", "NO")

    Your logical expression is SUM([Reel Stop]@row, [Quantity Placed]@row, [Quantity Scrapped]@row) = [Reel Start]@row, true condition is "YES", false condition is "NO".
