Wouldn’t it be great to have a column within a SharePoint list that automatically populated itself with the content from other, separate columns from the same list?

Transcript of "Using Calculated Columns"

  1. 1. LINDION SERVICES Using Calculated Columns FAQs, Guidelines and Procedures   Jason Howard Peterson          Wouldn’t it be great to have a column within a SharePoint list that automatically populated itself with the  content from other, separate columns from the same list? 
  2. 2. Using Calculated Columns Microsoft SharePoint Wouldn’t it be great to have a column within a SharePoint list that automatically populated itself with the  content from other, separate columns from the same list?  This LinDion Services performance support item  will leverage our Learning Catalog SharePoint list as an example, which applies to any list.  Once again, imagine that within one of your lists, you’re capturing information in two separate columns and  need them to be separate for specific reasons.  However, you also need to combine the information from  both into another, separate column.  For example, seen below, we need to capture the LMS Category  (Column A), the LMS Number (Column B) and then have both the LMS Category and LMS Number columns  merge together in a new column (Column C).  Imagine having to enter that information in column C  manually.  Using a Calculated column, you can avoid re‐entering this information manually (see below).    INSTRUCTIONS: Create a Calculated Column and Add the Formula  Within your list, create a new Calculated column (in this case, Single line of text) and double‐click on the  columns to reference or rather leverage from the Insert Column: add the ampersand (&) sign in between  both to create the following formula (as an example): =[LMS Category]&[LMS Number].    From the Help icon in SharePoint, access “Examples of common formulas” to learn more about possibilities  with the Calculated column.    Please contact us with any questions.
