Formula Help


I am looking to set up a formula where a status column gets automatically updated to a certain color based on the relationship of the % complete column and the end date column for each row in the plan. Examples of what I am looking for below.

If % Complete = 100%, then Status Column = Green

If % Complete < 100% and Target End Date is past due, then Status Column = Red

If % Complete = 0% and Target Start Date is past due, then Status Column = Red

Any guidance is much appreciated :)

    What your looking for is NOT a formula, but conditional formatting. There is a conditional formatting icon on the top tool bar. Its fairly intuitive to use, have a go and come back if you have any issues.
