Nested Sharepoint Statement

Posted on 2016-08-19

Last Modified: 2016-09-11
I have two date columns in a sharepoint list.  I need to create a nested formula that will mark either -
"Open", Pending Open" or "Closed"  (see attached file)

So I have three different scenarios to add to the formula.  I am fine creating a formula for two different but not three.

Thanks for your help!

Try using a nested IF statement:
=IF([@[Date Completed]]<>"", "Closed", IF([@[Effective Date]]<>"", "Pending Open", "Open"))

Try without the @ symbols. That formula was built using the spreadsheet.

=IF([Date Completed]<>"", "Closed", IF([Effective Date]<>"", "Pending Open", "Open"))
