## Formula Handbook: Your ultimate guide to master formula in Smartsheet​

No one can deny that mastering formula will have a massive advantage in your daily work life with SmartSheet, you can efficiently execute calculations and lookups on a single
sheet or across multiple sheets using formulas and functions. You may automate symbols and drop-down fields using formulas as well.
Both manually entered variables and cell references can be utilized to generate a formula. You can apply a consistent computation to an entire column or add formulas to a set of fields. To conserve grid space, you can also create formulas in the Sheet Summary.

Functions like SUM, AVG, and IF are widely used formulas. There are also some unique capabilities proprietary to Smartsheet, including hierarchy functions like CHILDREN. To see all the options, you can look at this Functions List.

## Here are some common formulas you might consider:

Absolutely! Smartsheet is a powerful tool that supports various functions and formulas for more advanced sheet operations. Here are some common formulas you might consider for your article:

1. **SUM**: Adds values in a range.
– Example: `=SUM([Column1]1:[Column1]10)` will add up the values from row 1 to row 10 in Column1.

2. **AVG**: Calculates the average of values in a range.
– Example: `=AVG([Column2]1:[Column2]10)` will provide the average of the values from row 1 to row 10 in Column2.

3. **COUNT**: Counts the number of cells in a range that contain numbers.
– Example: `=COUNT([Column3]1:[Column3]10)` will count the number of numeric entries in the specified range.

4. **TODAY**: Returns the current date.
– Example: `=TODAY()` will display today’s date.

5. **DAYS**: Calculates the number of days between two dates.
– Example: `=DAYS([End Date]1, [Start Date]1)` will give the number of days between the start date and end date in row 1.

6. **IF**: Checks a condition and returns one value if true and another value if false.
– Example: `=IF([Status]1 = “Completed”, “Yes”, “No”)` will return “Yes” if the status in row 1 is “Completed”, otherwise it will return “No”.

7. **VLOOKUP**: Searches the first column of a range for a key and returns the value of a specified cell in the row found.
– Example: `=VLOOKUP(1001, {Sheet2 Range 1}, 3, false)` might look for the number 1001 in the first column of a range in Sheet2 and return the value in the third column of the matching row.

8. **JOIN**: Combines multiple text strings into one string.
– Example: `=JOIN(“, “, [Column4]1, [Column5]1)` will combine the text in the cells of row 1 from Column4 and Column5, separated by a comma.

9. **PARENT**: Returns the primary column value (typically the task name in a project sheet) of the parent row.
– Example: `=PARENT(ROW())` will display the primary column value of the parent of the current row.

10. **RANK**: Returns the rank of a number in a list of numbers.
– Example: `=RANK([Score]1, [Score]:[Score], 1)` will give the rank of the score in row 1 in ascending order based on all scores in the Score column.

Remember, while these formulas can be used in Smartsheet, it’s essential to ensure that references, such as column names, match what’s actually in the user’s sheet.

## To go deep, you can also use the “Template Set” of Smartsheet, some key benefits are:

• Learning about using formulas in SmartSheet.
• Working with live examples of each function in SmartSheet.
• Examples of commonly used formulas, such as Red Yellow and Green status calculations Examples of advanced formulas, such as cross-sheet data lookups with multiple criteria.
