Autofill Dropdown Menu

Hi all to formula geeks! I am looking for a formula to fill in automatically the Day 1 (Badge Code) drop down column. If any of the 4 columns of different conferences Oct 26 (in light yellow) contains "1", then the Day 1 (Badge Code) Column will autofill with the corresponding badge code/s. Multiple badge codes are allowed. As an example since Quality Management and CSSD column contains "1", Day 1 Badge Codes will be QUA1 and CSD1:

    Hi @Donna B.

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (and continue the pattern)

    =IF([Imaging & Diagnostics - 26 Oct]@row = 1, "IMG1") + CHAR(10) + IF([Quality Management & Patient Safety - 26 Oct]@row = 1, "QUA1")

    Did that work/help?

    There is another option where we would use the first row for the options and then COLLECT it when the row with the answer has a 1 in it, but with only for options I think the formula above would be the best.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
