I need assistance with a formula. I need to track the number of remaining business days until a project "Due Date," but once a "Completion Date" has been entered, I want that number of days to stop counting so that I can see how many days the project was over due.

This is what I have so far:

=IF(Status@row = "Complete", [Due Date]@row - [Completion Date]@row, [Due Date]@row - TODAY())

    You will need another column - Completion Date. The new formula will test that column for a date, if there a date, then it will calculate using Completion Date, not Due Date. Something like this:

    =IF(ISDATE([Completion Date]@row), NETWORKDAYS([Completion Date]@row]@row, TODAY()), NETWORKDAYS([Due Date]@row, TODAY()))

    So I entered this formula:

    =IF(ISDATE([Completion Date]@row), NETWORKDAY([Completion Date]@row, [Due Date]@row), NETWORKDAY(TODAY(), [Due Date]@row))

    Due Date: 8/24/22

    Completion Date: 8/24/22

    And my answer is "1"

    I have played with the dates and you cannot get the "Remaining Days" to equal zero.
