IF Statement help

So, I am trying to create a column that adds the Student ID, when the Student is Named. This way I can make my reports de-identified. From a workflow standpoint, Teachers use a drop down for the Names on a Form and then enter Student Progress notes. I want a column next to it the Student Name that inserts the Student ID. For example:

IF Student=Katie Johnson then value = "STU001"

How do I structure this? I keep trying but it comes back unparseable. Thank you for a little help! Deb

    Hi Deb,

    Where is the Student ID located?

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!
