# Nested if /or formula

✭✭

Hello,

I am looking to have a status bar (the one with empty, half, three quarter and full) look at two columns and give a result.

I have percent complete and a "Done" checkbox. the percent complete is by date, so when the date gets closer the status bar shows progress. Here is the formula I am using to do so..

=IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.25, "Empty", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.5, "Half", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.85, "Three Quarter", IF([Percent Complete]@row >= 1, "Full",

Now this has been working for me pretty well, until I added in a Done checkbox. I need to have the formula analyze BOTH columns now. So I need it to show the progress until the done box is checked. Once the done box is checked I need the status bar to show FULL. However, I cannot seem to get the bar to show full?? Here is the updated formula that I tried to add OR to.

=IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.25, "Empty", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.5, "Half", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.85, "Three Quarter", IF([Percent Complete]@row >= 1, "Full", OR(IF(Done@row = 1, "Full"))))))

Can someone help me figure out how to get both columns into this formula and explain where I went wrong for the future?

Thanks!!

Try something like this.

=IF(Done@row = 1, "Full", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.25, "Empty", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.5, "Half", IF([Percent Complete]@row <= 0.85, "Three Quarter", IF([Percent Complete]@row >= 1, "Full")))))

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
