Hello - 

Is it possible to create a formula that only looks for some of the colors in the R/Y/G/G drop down column.

My drop down order in the Stage column is Not Started, In Progress, Completed. In my Status column I have Red, Yellow, Green, Gray.

I am looking to create a formula that enters a 'Gray' icon when 'Completed' is selected as status and a 'Green' icon when 'Not Started' is selected. I don't want 'Red' or 'Yellow' to auto pop when 'In Progress is selected. 

I am using this currently and receiving the 'Unparseable' error.

=IF(Stage118 = 0, "Green", (Stage118 = 2, "Gray"))

Is this possible? Any help is appreciated!





Hi Andrea,


I built a formula to look like this (see attachment) and I believe it will work!


Please let me know if you have any problems with this!  To have it populate into the other rows, you'll want to be sure to use our drag-fill method.  You can find more information here.




Hi Andrea,

Try this.

=IF([email protected] = "Not Started"; "Green"; IF([email protected] = "Completed"; "Gray"))  

The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.  

=IF([email protected] = "Not Started", "Green", IF([email protected] = "Completed", "Gray"))

Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

Did it work?

Have a fantastic week!
