create a due date based on report date and category


looking for a formula to do the following:

Target due date based on category:

Due date is report date, status is OPEN +number of days based on risk category

High - report date +1 day

Medium - report date +3 days

Low - report date + 7 days

Advisor - report date + 10 days

then place the target due date in the column

    Hi @Tammy Luther

    This formula should do what you need

    =IF([Risk Category]@row = "Low", [Date of Audit]@row + 7, IF([Risk Category]@row = "Medium", [Date of Audit]@row + 3, IF([Risk Category]@row = "High", [Date of Audit]@row + 1, IF([Risk Category]@row = "Advisor", [Date of Audit]@row + 10, [Date of Audit]@row))))

    Tested and working as below.

    Hope this helps

    Sorry for the delay - had been traveling.

    I used the formula and it comes in a little weird.

    date of audit was 9/14 and the category was "low" and came back as below.

    I seems to add the 1, 3, 7, 10 to the end of the date. Not sure what I'm missing.
