Need Help with Sheet Reference formula


Hi Community!

I am tracking activity on one sheet. I have an exact replica of this sheet where that I am using for a report:

I'm trying to create a formula that would automatically update my second sheet with the word "Complete" when I enter a date in the fields on my first sheet.

Here is the formula I'm inserting on the "report" sheet (example above): =IF({Copy of Market Selection Process Range 5} <= TODAY(), "Complete", 0).

I am getting invalid operation error. Also, rather than "0" if test fails, I just want to leave blank. Can you guide me on this one? Thanks!

    Are the date columns set as a Date Column format? They need to be to use date functions

    I would suggest something like this to also account for blanks

    =IF(ISDATE(Date@row), IF(Date@row <= TODAY(), "Completed", ""), "")
