Formula previously worked, doesn't now

Hello!


This logic seemed to work in a different capacity, but no longer is. I have the three categories used locked to check box only. Help welcome!

=IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 0, [Returned to Requester]@row = 0, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), “Red”, IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 0, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), “Yellow”, IF(OR([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 1, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), "Yellow", IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 1, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 1), “Green”))))

    Hi @bmclark

    The first thing to check is your quotation marks. I see that some of your quotes are curved, like so: “Red” but some are straight up and down, like so: "Yellow"

    Smartsheet requires quotes to be the straight up and down ones (the ones that appear when you type directly in a cell), and will not be able to recognize the curved quotes (giving an UNPARSEABLE error).

    Try adjusting the quotes to see if this resolves your issue:

    =IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 0, [Returned to Requester]@row = 0, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), "Red", IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 0, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), "Yellow", IF(OR([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 1, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 0), "Yellow", IF(AND([Sent to VP for Signature]@row = 1, [Returned to Requester]@row = 1, [Fully Executed Filed]@row = 1), "Green"))))


    Let me know if this helped!

    Cheers,
