Help with formula
I am working to port a process that is managed in Excel into Smartsheet.
I want to created a formula that will check two cells in the row, if they both show filled, I want to check the checkbox. If either or both are any other status, I want the checkbox to remain unchecked.
I want to convert this to a column formula. When I enter this into the cell, it works as expected:
=IF([Status One]1="Filled", IF([Status Two]1 = "Filled", 1, 0))
However, that formula will not convert to a column formula. When I change it to the formula below, I get #Invalid Operation.
=IF([Status One]:[Status One]="Filled", IF([Status Two]:[Status Two] = "Filled", 1, 0))
Can someone point out my error?

Column formulas can't have row number references. Use @row instead:
=IF([Status One]@row="Filled", IF([Status Two]@row = "Filled", 1, 0))
