Doing two things in one IF statement
WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO:
I would like to accomplish two things in one IF statement. Something like:
=IF([This Column]@row = 1, [That Column]=true ALSO Today(), ....)
WHY I'M TRYING TO DO THIS:
I am trying to automate the Actual Finish column in my project management sheets such that, when % Complete reaches 100, then check a helper column AND set the date to Today(). There will be an initial IF to see if the helper column is checked before proceeding to avoid constantly overwriting the Actual Finish column. My instincts say that two things have to happen in one IF statement, but haven't been able to figure that part out, nor a workaround for that, as of yet.
SOME THINGS I'VE TRIED:
I have set the value of [Actual Finish Helper]@row to be 1 and the value of [Actual Finish]@row to be the empty set, seeming to meet the requirements for a true return for the AND function, yet I get no TODAY() return and, instead, get xxx. Troubleshooting brought me to test the components of the AND function separately like so:
=IF([Actual Finish Helper]@row = 1, TODAY())
=IF([Actual Finish Helper]@row <> "", TODAY())
and both return today's date. This seems a very curious result.
Thank you for your help.
