I cannot get this formula to work.  Any suggestions?

=IF([% Complete]1=0%,"Not Started",IF([% Complete]1=100%,"Completed","In Progress"))

    Hi Scott,

    Smartsheet looks at the numbers in a column formatted for percentage (for example, a % Complete column) as values between 0 and 1. Use decimal values (examples: 0.25 for 25%, 0.5 for 50%) to get the correct comparison, as opposed to whole numbers.

    Try this.

    =IF([% Complete]@row = 0; "Not Started"; IF([% Complete]@row = 1; "Completed"; "In Progress"))    

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.    

    =IF([% Complete]@row = 0, "Not Started", IF([% Complete]@row = 1, "Completed", "In Progress"))

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic weekend!
