  • 1.  Duration Formula

    Posted 12 days ago
    Help! While fairly new to "fun" with formulas, I am trying to calculate a simple duration. I've got field "Date Advisor Received" and "Date Completed" Both are Date Type fields. I've added another field "Days Open/Advisor Actively worked" Formula Numeric

    I'd like the days to calculate when the Date Completed Field is not populated.

    My formula:
    IF([Status]="Complete", ToDate([[Date Client Advisor Received]]) - ToDate([[Date Completed]]) , Today() - ToDate([[Date Client Advisor Received]])

    The 1st Date Client Advisor Received comes back with error Field not identified. HELP please!

    Hello Jamie,

    For calculating simple duration, We have "Formula - Duration" as field type available in Quickbase.
    Few changes required here are :
    1. Change field type of "Days Open/Advisor Actively worked" to formula - duration.
    2. Formula Modification :- If([Status]="Complete", [Date Completed] - [Date Advisor Received] , Today() - [Date Advisor Received])
    The 1st Date Client Advisor Received comes back with error Field not identified.  - this is because in your formula you have two square brackets instead of one. 

    Hope it resolves your problem. Looking to hear back from you!
