Date or N/A in a cell
I am trying to figure out a column formula that will autopopulate a cell with either a date or an N/A:
N/A, if the [TOTAL BUDGET] cell is under $100,000
or
=[Final Report Due]@row + 15 if the [TOTAL BUDGET] cell@row is $100,000 or more (this would be the audit report due date)
I tried this but it's not quite working:
=IF([TOTAL BUDGET]@row < $100,000, "N/A", IF([TOTAL BUDGET]@row >= $100,000, "[Final Report Due]@row +15"))
One problem seems to be that if I set the Column Type to "Date", then putting N/A isn't possible. But if I set the Column Type to Text/Number, the date calculations don't work.
Is there another way to approach this?
Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi @LizTo,
=IF([TOTAL BUDGET]@row < 100000, [Final Report Due]@row + 15, "N/A")
Ensure the column you're calculating in is a Date column, but not restricted to Date values which allows for the "N/A".
All the best,

Awesome, glad you got it!
You could have also just flipped the < to a and left the results in that order. Either way would accomplish the same.
=IF([TOTAL BUDGET]@row < 100000, [Final Report Due]@row + 15, "N/A")
would become
=IF([TOTAL BUDGET]@row > 100000, [Final Report Due]@row + 15, "N/A")
