How do I create a flag that looks for Not Started and Today's date greater than begin

=IF(AND(Status8 = "Not Started", TODAY() > Begin8, 1, 0)

I receive an incorrect argument set

    Hi Paul,

    Try something like this.

    =IF(ISBLANK(Begin@row); ""; IF(AND(Status@row = "Not Started"; Begin@row < TODAY()); 1; 0))

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

    =IF(ISBLANK(Begin@row), "", IF(AND(Status@row = "Not Started", Begin@row < TODAY()), 1, 0))

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!
