# 2 If Statements

Options

I see this being talked about but still can't figure it out. I want the Status to change colors (Dots) based on days remaining but I also want Status to be overridden to Green (Dot) if the Approval is Green (up Arrow).

Current formula: =IF([Days Remaining]@row < 0, "Red", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 10, "Yellow", "Green"))

I just want to add: Make Green if Approval is Green (Up Arrow).

Thank you. I did this: =IF(Approval@row = "Up", "Green", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 0, "Red", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 10, "Yellow", "Green"))) and worked.

Hi @Garet

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

=IF([Days Remaining]@row = "", "", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 0, "Red", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 10, "Yellow", "Green")))

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

Sorry, still a little lost. I basically want the status to be green if the days remaining is over 10 day OR the approval is a green arrow. I want the green arrow to override any days remaining because it won't matter if it is approved.

Hi @Garet

Did you try @Andrée Starå's formula? I'll break down what it says for you to make sure this works for what you want:

`=IF([Days Remaining]@row = "", "", `

^If the Days Remaining cell is blank, then this will return a blank cell in your status column.

`IF([Days Remaining]@row < 0, "Red", `

^ If the Days Remaining cell is less than 0, so a negative number, then return a Red status ball. (You can change this to be Red if it = 0 as well, by adding that in: <= 0, "Red")

`IF([Days Remaining]@row < 10, "Yellow", `

^If the Days Remaining is greater than a negative number, but is less than 10, then return a Yellow status ball.

`"Green")))`

Otherwise, return a green ball. This means that if the Days Remaining are greater than 9 days (10 or more) then your row will return a green ball.

It sounds like you do have an additional requirement with the green arrow. In this case, I would add a new statement at the beginning, right after the blank statement. Try this:

=IF([Days Remaining]@row = "", "", IF(Approval@row = "Up", "Green", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 0, "Red", IF([Days Remaining]@row < 10, "Yellow", "Green"))))

Cheers,
