Formula - contidional "past due" based on %Complete and Finish date

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2015 Posts

list of tasks. I want to calculate the past due date for tasks that have not completed.   I have  variations of

=IF(NOT([% Complete]1 = 100), (TODAY()-Finish1), "do nothing") 


where it is not working it is the do nothing - it is currently calculating values for items that are complete.

    I changed it to use Status rather than %


    =IF(NOT(Status1 = "Complete"), (Finish1 - TODAY()), 0)


    It seems to be working.

    Hello Roni, 


    I can confirm that the formula you mentioned in your follow up should be working and is written correctly. 


    If you choose to use the first formula instead, referencing the % complete column, you'll want to adjust the formula to not say = 100, but = to 1, as 1 equals 100% in the % complete column.
