IF Formula


could you help me understand what is wrong with this IF Formula?

I refer to the link below with the formula =IF([Order Date]3 < TODAY(), "Red", IF(AND([Order Date]3 >= TODAY(), [Order Date]3 < TODAY(+7)), "Yellow", "Green"))

My formula =IF([% Complete]@row < 70%, ''RED'', IF(AND([% Complete]@row <= 70%, [% Complete]@row < 100%), ''Yellow'', ''Green''))

I tried with replacing the % by 0.7 or 1, but doesn't work. it's for RYG status ball.

    Hi @Abdelhadi Said

    You had some other characters surrounding the True or False results, and the RYG colors have to be Red or red, but not RED. Also, you had a more than/less than statement flipped.

    Try something like this.

    =IF([% Complete]@row < 0,7, "Red", IF(AND([% Complete]@row >= 0,7, [% Complete]@row < 1), "Yellow", "Green"))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
