Combining IF formulas to Return Text Values


I have 3 columns;  Start Date, End Date, Progress

I can get the following formulas to work separately for row 17:

=IF([Start Date]17 < TODAY(), "In Progress", "Not Started") Returns in the Progress column

=IF([End Date]17 < TODAY(), "Overdue") Returns in the Progress column.

I want to combine these 2 formulas in one cell to return either; In Progress, Not Started or Overdue.

If there are no dates in the Start and End Date columns I want it to return blank in the Progress column.

Additionally I would like to use [Start Date]:[Start Date] instead of [Start Date]17  to cover the whole column, but it doesn't seem to work in either formula.
