SharePoint List Calculated column to return values across 5 separate Readiness activity fields

Harry N Nomikos 1,266 Reputation points

Hi Team

I require a formula that will return a value of "Active Readiness Activity" when any of the 5 Readiness activity fields equal any off the below options. If the field is left blank, I want it to return "No Active Readiness Activity"

Drop down options
Comms LIBP
Comms other (workplace, intranet)
Comms Customer (Mailouts)
Customer- Other (e.g. call campaign)
Facilitated Training (zoom, F2F)
Leaders Briefing
Leader Led Training
Monthly Leaders Snapshot
People hub Training
Self Directed Online Learning

I've provided a table to show my expected result and an example of how the data will show up

Project 1 Readiness Activity 1 Readiness Activity 2 Readiness Activity 3 Readiness Activity 4 Readiness Activity 5 Expected Results
Project 1 Leaders Briefing Self Directed Online Learning Pilot Comms-ITK Active Readiness Activity
Project 2 No Active Readiness Activity
Project 3 Comms-ITK Active Readiness Activity
Project 4 Embedding Leader Led Training Self Directed Online Learning Comms LIBP Active Readiness Activity
Project 5 Leader Led Training People hub Training Active Readiness Activity
