I am using Google sheets and have a cell that has data validation and I am putting check boxes (I4:I) for people when items are received, they need to be changed to "False" when the Data Validation cell (C2) is changed.

I'm new at this, but this is what I have, but I am getting a syntax error on Line 5.

function onEdit(e){
  if(e.range.getC2Notation() == 'C2' && 
      e.range.getSheet().getName() == 'Outbound Parts'

Any help would be appreciated.

You can fix the code like this:

function onEdit(e) {
  const sheet = e.range.getSheet();
  if (e.range.getA1Notation() !== 'C2'
    || sheet.getName() !== 'Outbound Parts') {
  • That worked! Thank you so much. Jul 14, 2021 at 17:18
