Hello Smartsheet Community! I hope that everyone is well and had a Happy Thanksgiving, for those of you in the States!

I need some formula assistance for what I'm trying to accomplish.

I have (3) columns: A - Veggie Type, B - Veggie Qty, C - Total Potato Qty

If A - Veggie Type is "Potato", I want the C - Total Potato Qty column to populate with the data that is in the B - Veggie Qty column.

This is what I tried but its not working:

=IF(CONTAINS("Potato", [A - Veggie Type]@row) = [B - Veggie Qty]@row)

Test Sheet here for example: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/publish?EQBCT=98259ee80f37420b8a39b7238a8664d9

Thanks in advance for the assistance!
