IF Statement

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

I am currently working on an IF statement for RYG. I currently have a statement that turns green if the task is not on the due date and in the future. I have it turn yellow on the due date and red when past due. I am trying to get the IF to work adding grey to the mix that if the column done (checklist) is marked that it will turn grey regardless of the due date. Here is what i have so far. 


=IF(AND([Due Date]6 < TODAY(), Done6 = 0), "Red", IF([Due Date]6 = TODAY(), "Yellow", IF([Due Date]6 > TODAY(), "Green", IF(AND([Due Date]6 <= TODAY() >= Done6 = 1), "Gray"))))

    It looks like you have a typo in your last IF-statement leading up to "Gray": 


    IF(AND([Due Date]6 <= TODAY() >= Done6 = 1)


    Should probably read something like:

    IF(AND([Due Date]6 <= TODAY(), Done6 = 1), "Gray")


    That being said, I don't think this is necessarily the right order. If you want it to just be Gray no matter what the date is (as long as it's done), I would actually put that first before comparing any dates:


    =IF(Done6 = 1, "Gray", IF([Due Date]6 < TODAY(), "Red", IF([Due Date]6 = TODAY(), "Yellow", IF([Due Date]6 < TODAY(), "Green"))))


    I hope that helps! Let me know if something isn't clear or if I didn't address your problem.
