If Status = "DNR Request - Approved" or "MRS Request Approved" Then formula question...


In an effort to track the amount of time from submission to completion I'd like to have a formula help populate the [Actual Completion Date] by using the following logical expression...however I'm not getting this to work.

If Status = "DNR Request - Approved" or "MRS Request Approved" then [Actual Completion Date] = [Modified Date]

If someone could help me format this formula, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I thought this might work...but it does not.

    =IF(Resolution@row = "DNR Request - Approved", "=[modified]@row", "test")

    Hi Jed,

    Try something like this. (we can add the OR part after you've approved the below structure)

    =IF(Resolution@row = "DNR Request - Approved"; Modified@row)

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

    =IF(Resolution@row = "DNR Request - Approved", Modified@row)

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

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
