Actual Date IF Formula for RYG Balls


Hi all!

I would like my RYG balls to express the following (actual dates, not cell reference):

Green = before 21 August 2020

Yellow = after 21 August 2020

Red = after 28 August 2020

This is my current formula, and although individual statements work, it doesn't work as a whole - it doesn't return any 'Reds'

=IF([Delivery Date]9 < (DATE(2020, 8, 20)), "Green", IF([Delivery Date]9 >= (DATE(2020, 8, 20)), "Yellow", IF([Delivery Date]9 >= (DATE(2020, 8, 27)), "Red")))

Help would be very much appreciated 🙂
