Formula Column - Change Status based on %Complete

Curt Gould
edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

I have created a Column called Formula1 and I am wanting to use this column to create a formula that will look at the %Complete and If the %Complete = 100% (1) then change the status to Complete.  Currently I have the following as the formula: =IF(%Complete1 = 1, Status1 = "Complete")


Problem is I am getting "#NUMBER EXPECTED


Any ideas?

    You can't use a formula to change a different cell.

    In your Status column, row 1


    =IF(%Complete1 = 1, "Complete", "")


    =IF(%Complete1 = 1, "Complete", "Not Complete")


    Be aware that if anyone types in the Status column, your formula will be lost.


    Hope this helps.
