    Hi Blair,

    Looks like you need a specific cell reference for "Stage" as well as an OR function in your formula. Here's an example of what this might look like:

    =IF(AND($[Cust Requested Date]$1 + $[Column54]$9 > [Cust Requested Date]30, OR(Stage1= "Acceptance", Stage1= "Client Meet")), 1)

    You also don't need the 0 at the end.

    Edit the "Stage" cell reference to make sure that it references the desired cell in your sheet.
