I want column C to say CLOSED when Columns A & B both say COMPLETE
I tried =if(a2=b2, CLOSED) but that gives me results whenever A & B match (including when they are both blank). I only want results when A & B say COMPLETE. What am I leaving off the formula?

Thanks

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Welcome to the forums GJLind,

Try this formula:

Code:
=IF(AND(A2="COMPLETE",B2="COMPLETE"),"CLOSED","")

@63falcondude Or even another one ;)

Enter with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter

=IF(AND(A2:B2="Complete"),"CLOSED","")
