Hi,
Check this function in calculated column =IF([RagStatus]="blue",1,IF(TODAY()<[StartDate],[StartDate]/[Duration],0))

What do you mean by that in this sentence "Today's date less start date column B then divide that by duration in column D.."
divide that? what is that? Is it StartDate/Duration or I understood it wrong?
