Trying to update the below formula to work with an additional column

This was the formula i was using

= IF ([approval actual]@row <>"", [approval actual]@row, IF([approval predicted]@row <>"", [approval predicted]@row, [approval revised]@row))

With the addition of the approval column I'm not quite sure, it tried some additional If functions and or functions.

Would be interested in your ideas to resolve.

    Hi @Mike DeLuca

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =
    IF([approval actual]@row <>"", [approval actual]@row, 
    IF([approval predicted]@row <>"", [approval predicted]@row,
    IF([approval revised]@row <>"", [approval revised]@row)
    

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi @Mike DeLuca

    It looks like you just need to add in one extra IF statement at the end, where instead of defaulting to the Approval Revised we need to check if that one is "not blank" as well.

    Try:

    = IF([approval actual]@row <>"", [approval actual]@row, IF([approval predicted]@row <>"", [approval predicted]@row, IF([approval revised]@row <> "", [approval revised]@row, approval@row)))

    Cheers,

    Genevieve
