# Formula Issue

Options
✭✭✭

I am trying to create a formula in Smartsheet, which I am able to make work in Excel. However, the formula isn't working in Smartsheet. Does anyone have a solution?

What I want to do is calculate the next due date based on the current status and the date the status was updated.

=IF([Program Status]@row = “Apprenticeship Program - Phase 1”, SUM([Last Status Change]@row+120),0)

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

```=
IF([Program Status]@row = "Apprenticeship Program - Phase 1",
[Last Status Change]@row + 120)
```

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

You're very close, but you don't need the SUM formula

=IF([Program Status]@row = “Apprenticeship Program - Phase 1”, [Last Status Change]@row + 120)

Make sure the column Anticipated Date Until Next Phase is a Date column

I'm still getting "Unparseable" as a response...

I also have 3 more status changes that I want to add to the string. Here is what I tried to do, but received an Unparseable message:

=IF([Program Status]@row = "Apprenticeship Program - Phase 1", [Last Status Change]@row + 31), IF([Program Status]@row = "Submit Preliminary Credential Application - Phase 2", [Last Status Change]@row + 31), IF([Program Status]@row = "Preliminary Credential - Phase 3", [Last Status Change]@row + 190)

So, what I want to do is when the status is manually changed to either Phase 2 or 3 I want to add to the date in the Last Status Change column and display it under the Anticipated Date Until Next Phase column.
