like if in this drop down "LS" is selected another cell must be populated with a $$ amount?

Thank you

    Hi @Brigette

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could add a message and conditional formatting to instruct that it's a required field, or if it works, you could use the form logic feature in a form.

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Hi @Brigette

    There is no way to restrict a column or a cell data type base on conditions from other columns or cells.

    You can only restrict data type in the column set up, but it will be static for the whole column, not dynamically changing base on other conditions.

    The way around it will be create a formula that checks IF drop down is "LS" and amount is not a number then will for instance highlight an entire row etc.

    Unless I'm missing some functionality, that would be great if such a thing exist...
