Team,

I am trying to work out a formula that states the following:

If the WF Open Deadline - Facility Handoff Date is less than 5 days then Green

If the WF Open Deadline - Facility Handoff Date is at than 5 days then Yellow

If the WF Open Deadline - Facility Handoff Date is greater than 5 days then Red

If the Facility Handoff Date is empty then Gray

Below is what I created but I an not getting a Gray

=IF([WF OPEN DEADLINE]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row < (5), "Green", IF([WF OPEN DEADLINE]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row > (5), "Red", IF([WF OPEN DEADLINE]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row = (5), "Yellow", IF([FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row = " ", "Gray"))))

Hey @MRosko02

The order of the IF needed adjusting.

=IF([FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row = "", "Gray", IF([WF Open Deadline]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row < (5), "Green", IF([WF Open Deadline]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row > (5), "Red", IF([WF Open Deadline]@row - [FACILITY HANDOFF (FHO) DATE]@row = (5), "Yellow"))))

Does this work for you?
