# IFS and IF AND

Options
✭✭

I wonder if someone could help me?

I'm getting an 'INVALID' error for this formula: =IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY()), "Red", =IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY(5)), "Yellow", "Green"))

If I use the 1st part: =IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY()), "Red","Green") it works, but I want to add another part in that if the task is not 100% complete and is due to be completed in the next 5 days it is "Yellow", but it's throwing up an error.

Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.

Hi @MKRS

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

=IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY()), "Red", IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY(5)), "Yellow", "Green")

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

Hi @MKRS,

The formula is very close: you are getting the error because of the 2nd equals sign. If you take this out it should work:

=IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY()), "Red", IF(AND([% Complete]1 < 1, [End Date]1 < TODAY(5)), "Yellow", "Green"))

Hope this helps - any questions with it just ask.
