I have this code to display a msg if the date is set.  But I need to have the script say completed even though the day has past.  Have it set up for reports so people can see if it is completed or not.  But It works if it is the current day but I need it to say completed after that date has pasted also.  But say Not Completed if the day has not pasted.  

Thanks
$d=date("Y/m/d");
if ($d=="2007/11/18")
  $msg = "<font color='green'>Completed</font>";
else
  $msg = "<font color='red'>Not Completed</font>";

If i understand correctly this is what you want.
$d= "2007/11/18";
 
$time =  strtotime($d);
 
$now = time();
 
if ($time <= $now) {
 
  $msg = "<font color='green'>Completed</font>";
 
}else{
 
  $msg = "<font color='red'>Not Completed</font>";
 
}  
 
print $msg;
