# Return a red icon when due date is at risk - almost there, but getting a "0" entry

Options

Hi Folks - probably super easy, but am using a formula to return a red icon if % complete isn't 100% and if current date is 7 days out form target finish date. I am almost there, but I get a "0" when the criteria has been met (100% complete has been achieved). I would prefer a blank cell. Here is the formula I am using:

=IF([% Complete]@row = 1, 0, IF([Target Finish Date]@row = "", "", IF([Target Finish Date]@row - TODAY() <= 7, "Red", 0)))

As said above, once 100% has been marked off, I then get a "0" instead of a blank cell.

Any solutions? Thanks!

The reason you're getting 0 for 100% complete is at the beginning of your formula. Change it from 0 to "", and you'll get blanks instead of 0 when % Complete is 100%.

=IF([% Complete]@row =1, "", …

Note that the 0 close to the end of the formula is likely to also make everything that is NOT complete and that has a target date that is NOT within 7 days is going to also show 0.

One more question if I may - how do I set the formula to reference the % complete when I use symbols (e.g., the % bars) vs. just typing in 50% etc. The formula works when I just type in the percentage but does not work when I try to use symbols. Thank you!

Never mind, I figured it out. Use the word "Full" (with the quotes) in the formula instead of "1" which represents the filled in blue bar that represents 100%.
