Why isn’t this working?

Anyone have any clue why this concatenate function isn’t working on a stupid simple to do list I’m trying to make? I’m literally following a tutorial and have restyled it 20x lol I’m going nuts

Hi Road Dog and welcome to the community!

I’m not an expert in these matters but I think the issue is that Project is not a string (seems to be a lookup) and Concat() requires strings.

It is hard to tell from your screen capture, but you might be running into the problem with curly quotes. Check if you have curly quotes “ ” and replace them with straight quotes "

I also prefer using the & operator to concatenate, as I find it easier to read.

I figured it out, it appears to be some sort of glitch where if i enter it via a mobile browser i get an error but entered the same thing on my laptop and it worked :woman_facepalming:t3:
