# Symbols and formulas

Options
✭✭

I have a sheet that has 4 dates on it that I want to use symbols for completion purposes but I cannot figure out the formula or if it is even possible. I am trying to use the status bar with Empty, Quarter, Half, Three Quarter and Full. Here is what I would like to happen.

If Date 1-4 are greater than today I want it to show Empty

If Date 1 is less than today I want it to show Quarter

If Dates 1 and 2 are less than today I want it to show Half

If Dates 1, 2 and 3 are less than today I want to show Three Quarter

And if Dates 1-4 are less than or equal to today I want it to show Full

Try this...

=IF([Date 4]@row <= TODAY(), "Full", IF([Date 3]@row <= TODAY(), "Three Quarter", IF([Date 2]@row <= TODAY(), "Half", IF([Date 1]@row <= TODAY(), "Quarter", "Empty"))))

Is it giving the wrong output or are you getting an error? Are you able to provide a screenshot of your sheet?
