Multiple Not options in an IF(And Statement

Hello, Right now I have a working formula: =IF(AND([End Date]@row < TODAY(), NOT(Status@row = "Complete")), 1, 0). using this to trigger a risk flag.

I'd like to add more status values into the Not(Status@row portion.

Looking to add 3: Complete, Ongoing, Cancelled. These are 3 status values where I do not want an at risk status flag to trigger past task due date.

Any ideas?

    Hi @Andrée Starå ,

    Here is my option total set:

    • Not Started, In Progress, On Hold, Complete, Canceled, Ongoing

    If a project task is past its due date, I'd only like to trigger a risk flag for these status values:

    • Not Started, In Progress, and On Hold.

    and NOT trigger a flag for status:

    • Complete, Canceled, and Ongoing.

    This will be great to figure out if this is possible, thank you.

    Hi @Brett G

    Hope you are fine, please try the following formula:

    =IFERROR(IF(AND([end date]@row < TODAY(), OR(Status@row <> "Complete"),
    Status@row <> "Ongoing", Status@row <> "Cancelled"), 1), "")

    Hi @Bassam Khalil,

    I copied your formula into my column formula, but unfortunately it gave me a syntax error. I tried a couple of other things with what you sent over, but no luck.

    Thank you for trying to help me. Any other ideas I should try?
