IF formula issue (again)

I though this would be an easy one but it has me stumped again...

So i now want a column to populate with a symbol based on an other columns status to give a pictorial representation of that status, is this possible?


The symbol option used was from the 'Status' section and was the empty circle running through to the full circle. I have 5 separate status options so the formula would repeat 5 times, each using a phase of the circle.

=IF(Document Status@row = "example here", rest of the formula to get an empty circle,

    If you click on the dropdown arrow in a cell in the symbol column, you will see what text outputs you need to have for each different symbol (case sensitive).

    From there it is a basic nested IF statement.


    =IF(Status@row = "Not Starterd", "Empty", IF(Status@row = "In Progress", "Half", IF(Status@row = "Complete", "Full")))
