Excel to Smartsheets Formula



I am working on transforming an Excel i previously used to Smartsheets and need some help with the formulas. I was able to import and it worked.. however i am creating a whole new template in Smartsheets and though i can get the formula to work when i try to convert to column formula it tells me the formula syntax isnt quite right. What i have right now is

=[Hours Worked]16 / 8

So equal to the hours worked in row 16 divided by 8

    Should be a simple fix on this - anytime you're doing a column formula in Smartsheet it must reference "@row"

    So your formula would be:

    = [Hours Worked]@row/8

    Then you can convert it to a column formula which will run on every row.

    Let me know if that fixes the problem or if you have any other questions!
