Simple Variance Formula, but wrong?
I'm trying to use this below formula for a direction column, but getting UNPARSEABLE. Seemed pretty straightforward to me. I have a similar formula that is working for RAG column.
Any thoughts?
=IF([Variance]@row < 0, "Down”, “Up”) IF([Variance]@row > 0, “Up”, "Unchanged"))

@spopres Try replacing yours with
=IF(Variance@row < 0, "Down", IF(Variance@row > 0, "Up", "Unchanged"))
A few misplaced brackets I think ... and maybe a set of two single quotes instead of double quotes.

Thanks Dale, that did the trick....I thought I tried that too and it didn't work. Maybe just had to step away and come back.
What is the logic behind using brackets and not using brackets thought? Most my formulas use the brackets. Sometimes I see Smartsheet automatically removes them, other times I see that the tool leaves them in there. Odd.
