# I don't know how to set up formula column properly

Hello to every one

I need some help with setting up formula column.
I have a proper working one: ROUND(IF({Currency}=“₼”,DIVIDE({Amount},1.7),{Amount}),1)
The thing is I want to add date(numbers) from another formula column to this one , yet when use “SUM function” it says that it creates a circular dependency. How can I fix it?
I would really appreciate if you could help me, guys

@faighajiyev

I’d be happy to help. Can you give us the other formula text and the name of both formula columns?

Hello Jim,

Thanks a lot for reaching out

I have another formula column on the same board, and i would like to calculate the sum of that column «NDS 18%» into the «Cost in \$»

@faighajiyev

It’s still not clear to me where the circular dependency is occuring…

Please give me all the formulas as you think you want them in this format:
{NDS 18%} = ROUND(IF({Currency}=“₼”,DIVIDE({Amount},1.7),{Amount}),1)

The thing is I don’t know to add the sum of column “NDS 18%” into the column “Cost in \$”
When I use this formula ROUND(SUM(IF({Currency}=“₼”,DIVIDE({Amount},1.7),{Amount}),1),{NDS 18%})
It creates a circular dependency. As you can see here I added “SUM” function here, yet I don’t know how to use the function “SUM” in this formula properly(

@faighajiyev

Ok, I suspect that the error message may be incorrect.

Here is how I would write it:

``````ROUND(IF({Currency}="₼", {Amount} / 1.7, {Amount}) + {NDS 18%}, 1)
``````

If you really want to use the SUM() function, try this:

``````ROUND(SUM(IF({Currency}="₼", DIVIDE({Amount}, 1.7),{Amount}), {NDS 18%}), 1)
``````

If you still get an error, I would double check the formula for NDS and make sure that it is not referencing your Cost in \$ column.
