    Update that last formula to my modified one below. (You had numbers surrounded by " " and that makes Smartsheet read them as text)

    =IF(Priority1 = "P0", "URGENT", IF(Priority1 = "P1", 8, IF(Priority1 = "P2", 6, IF(Priority1 = "P3", 2, IF(Priority1 = "C", "", IF(Priority1 = "P4", 1, IF(Priority1 = "P5", 0.5, IF(Priority1 = "P6", "Postponed"))))))))

    Did that work?

    Hi @Nitish

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =SUMIF(Initials:Initials, "N", [Amount of Hours WK]:[Amount of Hours WK]) + SUMIF(Responsible:Responsible, "N", [Amount of Hours WK]:[Amount of Hours WK])

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Hi @Andrée Starå ,


    Thanks for the solution.


    But the result is coming out to be "0".


    FYI, the "Amount of work hr WK" is having a formula. Could it be an issue ?

    Happy to help!

    What's the formula? It might be that it's read as text, and then we'd need to add the VALUE function to the formula.

    Test this formula in a cell referencing the Amount of Hours WK cell.

    =IF(ISTEXT([Amount of Hours WK]@row), "Text", "Number")

    Hi @Andrée Starå ,


    This is the formula for "Amount of hours WK"

    =IF(Priority1 = "P0", "URGENT", IF(Priority1 = "P1", "8", IF(Priority1 = "P2", "6", IF(Priority1 = "P3", "2", IF(Priority1 = "C", "", IF(Priority1 = "P4", "1", IF(Priority1 = "P5", "0.5", IF(Priority1 = "P6", "Postponed"))))))))

    Also, the result of the formula that you sent is "Text"
