Formula Syntax Error

I am trying to convert a column to a formula, but I am getting the Syntax error and it doesn't convert. The formula appears to work when in the cell and when dragged down, just not when I made it a column formula. Could you let me know what is wrong with it?

=IF(AND(ISERROR(Transmitted1), [Hours - Total Timecard Hours]1 = 0), "Zero-Hours", IF([Add Transmitted Date]1 <> "", "Duplicate", IF(AND(ISERROR(Transmitted1), [Hours - Total Timecard Hours]1 <> 0), "Missing", "Received")))

    Column formula cannot have specific row number in the formula so you need to make use of @row.

    Try this:

    =IF(AND(ISERROR(Transmitted@row), [Hours - Total Timecard Hours]@row = 0), "Zero-Hours", 
    	IF([Add Transmitted Date]@row <> "", "Duplicate", 
    		IF(AND(ISERROR(Transmitted@row), [Hours - Total Timecard Hours]@row <> 0), "Missing", "Received")
