Error in Calculated Column

Brass Contributor

I am trying to create a calculated column that populate a digit based on the content of another column.

I am getting an error with the following, what am I missing?

Intent: If Subscriber_Status equals "ACTIVE" or "CML DIGITAL" then default content of calculated column should be "1", if any other content should be "0".

@Phishdawg Try using either of below formulas: 


=IF(ISBLANK([Subscriber_Status]),"",IF(OR([Subscriber_Status]="ACTIVE",[Subscriber_Status]="CML DIGITAL"),1,0))




=IF(OR([Subscriber_Status]="ACTIVE",[Subscriber_Status]="CML DIGITAL"),1,IF(OR([Subscriber_Status]="INACTIVE",[Subscriber_Status]="DELETED",[Subscriber_Status]="DOWNLOADING",[Subscriber_Status]="DIDN'T RETURN",[Subscriber_Status]="NO RESPONSE"),0,""))



  1. Sometimes comma( , ) does not work in formula (it is based on language or regional settings on your site). So in that case use semicolon( ; ) instead of comma( , ).
  2. Use correct display name of your SharePoint columns in above formula.
  3. Wrap column names inside [] if your column name has space in it. For example: [My Column Name].
