I tried it and it seemed to work. Make sure in your table the status is spelled right and there is no space in front of the first character. If it still doesn't work, check the system clock to make sure Date() is showing today.

Im confused, your code
=IIf([Status]<>"Completed" And Int([Target Date])<Int(Date()),"Overdue")

has the Value.   Overdue        if the two conditions are met.
But it has no default value if they are not. So what changes it back to something other than OVERDUE
when the next value doesnt meet the critera.  It's like its half of the formula
should be something like

=IIf([Status]<>"Completed And Int([Target Date])<Int(Date()),"Overdue", "Pending") ???
