Hello.

I have created a formula to indicate the status of our project based on today's date and if it has met the date each phase is completed. 

=IF(TODAY() > Date82, "Operational", IF(TODAY() > Date77, "Pre-Operational", IF(TODAY() > Date72, "Under Construction", "In Development")))

The phases were put in reverse, to accommodate the order of how the IF formula evaluates. The issue I am having is where I have "IF(TODAY() > Date77". I don't want that phase based on a date, but rather would like to have it be 60 days prior to "Date82". Is there a way of doing this? I know you can add in before and after to the TODAY function, but I can't wrap my head around how that would accomplish my goal. 

All help is appreciated.

Matthew
