Complicated if statement - health column

Hi All,

I'm really hoping you can help me.

We have a project tracker that has below columns:

Client Type (platinum, gold or silver), Delivery Date, Aging, Status, Health.

The health column is a symbol column with green, yellow and red colours. We need the formula to indicate the below requirements:

I've been trying for days now but can't come up with such formula so any help would be much appreciated here please!

    Are you entering the priority as well or just the priority description? Are you able to provide a screenshot of the source data (sample data can replace confidential data as needed)?

    Hi @angelapaj,

    Try this:

    =IF(Priority@row = 1, "Red", IF(Priority@row = 2, "Red", IF(Priority@row = 3, "Yellow", IF(Priority@row = 4, "Yellow", IF(Priority@row = 5, "Yellow", IF(Priority@row = 6, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 7, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 8, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 9, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 10, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 11, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 12, "Green", IF(Priority@row = 13, "Green", "")))))))))))))

    You can simplify this further, but leaving like this will make it easier to edit later if you need to adjust.

    @Paul Newcome I have only been entering the priority description.

    Ah. I think I see what is going on. In the screenshot of your table "Gold & Aging & Review" is not an actual status. It is a combination of columns you want to evaluate to output the color? If that is the case, which column is "Aging", and how do we determine yes/no?
