Formula Help: Unparseable
Hello  I accidentally deleted all my formulas from this sheet and recovered the text, but it's not working in my sheet anymore. I've tried calling helpdesk and we couldn't figure it out.
I have a formula to count all "yes" answers. Then a formula to calculate the % of "yes". The formula that USED to work was this one which would give a red/green/yellow "health" of that score. What am I missing?
Thanks!!!

Hey @Alicia Penner
The unparseable is because the middle AND clause is not closed off. You also might be missing an ending parenthesis. However, another approach is not to use AND clauses at all but take advantage of the fact that a formula stops when the first 'true' is found.
=IF(Risk@row>=0.79, "Green", IF(Risk@row>=0.51, "Yellow", IF(Risk@row<0.5, "Red")))
Will this work for you?
