Error in Transposing formula from Google Sheets to Smartsheet

Options

I recently revamped my new team's process from Google Sheets to Smartsheets and everything was peachy keen until I tried to transpose the last, painful formula. The purpose of this column is for my staff to have a quick & easy way to copy the relevant details of the row from one cell to a Jira ticket (my company does not allow the Jira Connector).

Can someone please look this over and let me know why I'm getting a syntax and/or #paresable error when trying to make this a column formula? As you can imagine, just the act of drafting this formula before attempting it was painful enough...lol.

    Hey @Emily Giordano

    I think the error was caused by your ampersands.

    OMG @Kelly Moore you are an angel! Thank you SO much!

    But I do have one follow-up question that I was not expecting - is there a way to copy the output of the formula vs the actual formula? I cannot figure out how to do that - I even tried pasting just the "values" or "plain text" and can't seem to get it to paste anything but the underlying formula...?

    Thanks again!!
