Hi guys, for some reason I cannot wrap my head around the formula syntax, and I could use some help. I understand this is a very easy and should be trivial.

My requirement is that IF SAP Ship-to Account Number IS NOT Null, Override SAP Address must be "Yes", and if It is Null it should be "No"` Can anyone help me out with a simple formula? This was my initial logic in which I think I'm going the wrong way with it.

IF(AND(SAP_Ship_to_Account_Number__c = null),ISPICKVAL(Override__c,"Yes"),ISPICKVAL(Override__c, "No"))


I just realized that SAP Ship-to Account Number is a formula that concatenates 2 other fields. That will complicate things doesn't it.. I am getting the error

Error: Formula result is data type (Text), incompatible with expected data type (true or false)

Remove the AND and use ISBLANK. Also the 'Override SAP Address with Drop Ship Info' field should be a formula text field (not editable) if its based on the "Ship To Account Number:


This might not work if you occasionally have to manually override the Override SAP address field

  • Also that formula doesn't work. Says its missing a parenthesis
