Hello Everyone,

I need help from you to write formulas in MS project. I had a file in Excel. But I need to use MS Project because of management decision. MS Project formula language is different and I do not have any experience about it before. I will be really glad if you can help me about it. In the table I have made the columns yellow which has following formulas.

Those three formula I need to write;


IF(OR(E2="Adjustment";E2="Secondary Work";E2="Technical Secondary Work";E2="Production";E2="Engineering Control Work");WORKDAY.INTL(H2;2;1);IF(OR(E2="Quality Control Work";E2="Assemble");WORKDAY.INTL(H2;1;1);IF(AND(E2="Primary Assemble";M2>G2;M2<N2);N2;EĞER(VE(E2="Primary Assemble";G2<MIN(M2;N2));MIN(M2;N2);IF(AND(E2="Primary Assemble";G2>MAK(M2;N2));WORKDAY.INTL(H2;2;1);"cant be calculated")))))

Formula 2:

Formula 3:
IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Adjust";D3));"Adjustment";IF(ISNUMER(SEARCH(" TN ";D3));"Technical Secondary Work";IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Production";D3));"Production")))
