Sharepoint List Column Validation

Terrell Chong 1 Reputation point

I have 4 column which look like the screenshot below

as you can see, the 1st and 2nd row is choice, and 3rd and 4th is comment, grey area means that column should not be able to filled in

all data coming in will be null at 1st, the blank is just another choice created by me to enable employees to choose that one in case they misclick.

so if intervention required, then the no intervention required one row will not be able to fill in, same as the column for comments, the same thing applies vice versa.

please let me know fi more information required.

    Hello @Terrell Chong ,

    Welcome to Q&A Forum!

    Please follow the steps:

    1.Create two Choice columns named [Reason for delay(require intervention)] and [Reason for delay(No require intervention)]. And they only have a "Yes" option.


    2.Use the below List Validation Formula:

    =AND(OR(AND([Reason for delay(require intervention)] = "Yes",ISBLANK([Reason for delay(No require intervention)])),AND([Reason for delay(No require intervention)] = "Yes",ISBLANK([Reason for delay(require intervention)]))),OR(AND(ISBLANK([Comments(intervention required)]),NOT(ISBLANK([Comments(intervention not required)]))),AND(NOT(ISBLANK([Comments(intervention required)])),ISBLANK([Comments(intervention not required)]))))  


    3.Here is my test:
