@jamescosten You are trying to add calculated value for single line of text column which does not allow referencing other columns in list.

Instead, you need to create a calculated column in a list. Follow below steps:

  1. Go to list, click on Add column and then select More...ganeshsanap_0-1657269639714.png
  2. Select Calculated as type of column, enter your formula in Additional Column Settings > Formula textbox and click OK button to save the column.ganeshsanap_1-1657269915601.png
