# Formula for status based on Start/Finish Date and % Complete

Options

I'm looking for a formula to populate Status column (Complete, Future Task, Late, On Schedule) based on the following columns:

-Start Date
-Finish Date
-% Complete

i.e. - If start date is in the future, it should be 'Future Task', if % complete is not 100% and finish date has passed it should be 'Late', if we are in between start and finish dates it should be 'On Schedule', if % complete is 100% it should be 'Complete'

Any help possible would be amazing!

Thank you!

Hello @Alison G ,

You could use this formula or iterate off of it as you need:

=IF([% Complete]@row = 1, "Complete", IF([Start Date]@row > TODAY(), "Future Task", IF([End Date]@row < TODAY(), "Late", "On Schedule")))

It looks like this.
