IF Function


I want a formula to report if the Actual Start date is greater than the Baseline start then put the tick and cross symbol.

The formula works however even when there is no actual start date entered it will still populate.

I need a condition for if it is blank then no symbol appears. Can anyone please help me out? :)

This is what I have so far.

=IF([Actual Start]@row <= [Baseline Start]@row, "Yes", "No")

    Hi @lukasrobbo97

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    IF([Actual Start]@row = "", "", IF([Actual Start]@row <= [Baseline Start]@row, "Yes", "No"))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
