    Determine status based on today's date (how to write the IF formula?)

    Hi,

    Just need some quick help with an IF function

    Capture.JPG

    I want to populate the status column with the following results

    DUE, Current or Forecast

    DUE if B=Drawn and the date returned <=TODAY+30
    Current if B=Drawn and the date returned >=TODAY+31
    Forecast if B=Forecast

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the board.

    This is assuming B can only be Drawn or Forecast, i.e., if it's not Forecast, it therefor must be Drawn.

    =IF(B4="Forecast",B4,IF(C4>=TODAY()+31,"Current","Due"))

    In D4:

    If column B contains anything besides Drawn or Forecast you will get weird results.

    In the future please bear in mind that an image attachment has very little value. Just attach the Excel file. It's easier than taking a screenshot first and then attaching that. The paper clip icon does not work for attachments. Instead, under the text box where you type your reply click the Go Advanced button. On the next screen scroll down and click on Manage Attachments, which will show a pop-up window to Select and Upload a file. Then close the window.

    Thanks....If I was to throw cancelled in as a possible alternative to Forecast and Drawn, how would I go about that?

    You need to give more details, what should happen if it's cancelled?

    IF B= Cancelled then D=Cancelled

    =IF(B4="Drawn",IF(C4<=TODAY()+30,"DUE","Current"),IF(B4="Forecast","Forecast",IF(B4="Cancelled","Cancelled")))
    Again following the assumption that B can only be Drawn Forecast or Cancelled

    Try
    =IF(B4="Drawn",IF(C4<=TODAY()+30,"DUE","Current"),B4)
