Automated Directional Arrow Symbols
I am trying to compared two columns in my sheet, based on if the numbers in the column grew, shrunk, or were unchanged. I'd like to automatically show this with the up/down/unchanged symbol. Is this possible?
I was able to get the up/down arrows to automatically show, but I'm not sure how to incorporate the "unchanged" symbol.
=IF([2021 Begin Count]@row > [2022 Begin Count]@row, "Down", "Up")

@mhenryWVP You're almost there. We can accomplish this by nesting some IFs:
=IF([2021 Begin Count]@row > [2022 Begin Count]@row, "Down", IF([2021 Begin Count]@row = [2022 Begin Count]@row, "Unchanged", "Up"))
In English: If 2021 Count is greater than 2022 Count, "Down"; If 2021 Count is the same as 2022 Count, "Unchanged"; otherwise, "Up".
From my test sheet:
