If negative number then enter text
I would like to enter text in a cell if another cell has a negative number. Can I do this or do I have to specify a range of numbers?
If "HDays between deadline complete" is a negative number then enter "Late" into "Late" column.
Thank you,
Chelsea

i had to use this:
=IF([HDays between deadline complete]1 < 0, "Late")

Assuming you looking for a formula, would something like this work for you?
=IF(HDays@row < 0, “Late”, “In Progress”)
There are also new automation workflows available to Change a Cell Value based conditions.

=IF(HDays between deadline complete@1<0,"Late") didn't work.
I looked at automation but I don't see an option for <0

i had to use this:
=IF([HDays between deadline complete]1 < 0, "Late")
