Help with formula (IF > AND > THEN)

Hi team,

Could you kindly help me out with the formula syntax for the following scenario please:

If the "Rag Status" column is 'Red', and the "Complete" checkbox is not checked, then the "Action Status" must change to 'Overdue'.

Link to sheet is HERE.

    This will take care of what you want done. Just place the formula in the Action Status column. You are going to want to write in some additional statements to cover the rest of your Action Statuses because once you manually change a cell, the formula disappears. If you need help writing it out for multiple scenarios, feel free to let us know...


    =IF(AND([Rag Status]@row = "Red", Complete@row = 0), "Overdue")

  • Thanks Paul. Yes could i please enlist your help to write out the multiple scenarios? I have granted you access to the sheet in question.

    I clicked the link to the sheet. It said I don't have access, so I sent you a "request to share". I do stay relatively busy, but once I get access, I will see what we are working with and help you build a formula to accomplish what you need. We will build it step by step to allow you to follow what is being done. That way it'll help you learn and you won't have to waste time waiting on someone else to help.

    I have shared a sheet with you titled "Convo" where we can chat back and forth to work this out for you.
