# Can you combine if and or formulas

Here is the formula that I currently have and works great currently:

=IF(COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [E #]@row, {EPU approved}, true) > 0, true, false)

First is the match the text in "UCA app e#" and "E #", but also needs "EPU approved" which is a checkbox, to be 'checked'. I need to add a second field that is a check box to also bring back true if 'checked'.

So the logic would be, IF a match to the text in E# field is yes, AND either "EPU approved" OR "logged for future" is checked, then bring back the value of true (also a checkbox).

Looks like you're missing a > sign before the second 0, and the "true" / "false" statement at the end.

Try this:

=IF(OR(COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {EPU approved}, true) > 0, COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {approved for future}, true) >0), true, false)

Cheers,

Genevieve

@Nate Ensor You could wrap a couple CountIFs in an or() .

OR(COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [E #]@row, {EPU approved}, true) > 0 , COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [E #]@row, {logged for future}, true) >0)

Then put that in your IF statement logic expression

ok I gotcha. Makes sense, countifs match listed twice combined with the true statement for both other columns.

I still can't quite put it together though, I'm missing something or it's getting late lol...but I'm getting the unparseable error. Not as simple as just putting "IF" at the beginning?

=IF(OR(COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {EPU approved}, true) > 0, COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {approved for future}, true) 0))

Try this:

=IF(OR(COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {EPU approved}, true) > 0, COUNTIFS({UCA App E#}, [Entegra E #]@row, {approved for future}, true) >0), true, false)
