"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this:
iif(a=b or c=d,'Yay','Doh')

IIf([Do we want to see an increase in this Measure?]=False,IIf(([Max Of Data]-[Max Of Target])/[Max Of Target]<=0,"Green",IIf(([Max Of Data]-[Max Of Target])/[Max Of Target]>0.1,"Red","Yellow"))))))

Each of the above clauses work fine separately.  However, I cannot seem to be able to use  them together joined with an 'or' --removing 3 parenthesis.

Perhaps this?

Status: IIf(
  ( [Do we want to see an increase in this Measure?]=True 
    and
    ([Max Of Data]-[Max Of Target])/[Max Of Target]>=0
  )
or ( [Do we want to see an increase in this Measure?]=False
      and ([Max Of Data]-[Max Of Target])/[Max Of Target]<=0
    ),
"Green",
iif(
   [Do we want to see an increase in this Measure?]=False
   and ([Max Of Data]-[Max Of Target])/[Max Of Target]<=0.1,
   "Yellow",
   "Red"
   )
)
