Hi All,
I have records in 3 tables of student and course

CourseID coursename   startdate                   enddate
   1             maths             06/26/2014               07/27/2014

 CourseStudentAssignment

CourseId   studentId     CourseStatus (computed column)
  1                 1  

I want to create a formula which checks the  startdate and enddate comparing to today's date

for eg :  If( Today'sdate > StartDate and today'sdate < endDate then CourseStatus = "On-going Course")
              if (Todays'Date < startDate then CourseStatus = "Not Started but student enrolled")
             If (Today'sDate > enddate then courseStatus  "Course completed")

please can you write down how to compare the above date to today's date.

Assuming you have the relationships set up between the tables, it would be something like:

=if(TODAY()>=related(Course[startdate]),if(today()<=related(Course[enddate]),"On-going Course","Course completed"),"Not Started but student enrolled")
