Simple IF formula not working

I am trying to create a simple IF function for Status in a project plan template. The formula has no error but the required value is not populating based on the formula

=IF([% Complete]@row = "0%", "Not Started", IF([% Complete]@row > "0%", "In Progress", IF([% Complete]@row = "100%", "Complete")))

For example if I put 0% in % Complete cell then I should see Not started auto-populate in the Status Column. Its not populating Not Started...just is blank

    If your '% Complete' column is populate with a decimal to make the %, such as 0 for 0%, .01 for 1% or .5 for 50%, etc.. then you are not going to want to use the "quotes" around the 0% in your formula. For example, try:

    =IF([% Complete]@row = 0, "Not Started", IF([% Complete]@row > 0, "In Progress", IF([% Complete]@row = 1, "Complete")))

    Quotes around a value typically indicate its a string of text.

    Hope this helps!
