Change in paint formulas

Home Depot was unable to formulate this paint color and I have no chip. Is anyone able to convert the formula in photo to a current Home Depot formulation? Thanks!

Easy Peasy! Most of the computers can still look up the new formula by the old colors name, but you need to know which company's paint color it was. 
Was it Dutch Boy, Clark and Kensington, etc...? ...barring that, we can paint a sample of anything left in the can on a paint stick and color match it for you.
 Best of Luck and let me know how you do!

Unfortunately, you were given bad information by your HD paint person. This old formula CAN definitely be used. It must be reentered as a manual formula, which will use the relatively new low VOC tints. The only old formulas which cannot be used are those containing Blue or Green, neither of which are in your formula. The new Blue and Green are much stronger than the older version. All other tint colors retained the same strength.
