i used your formula for the different dates to get status of completion. the first cell works, then when I drag down to the other cells, i get #NUM!

Hello - Is there a way to combine both these options?

So that the calculation will show O instead of #NUM! if the date is in the future AND stay at 100% if the end date has passed.

That would be the ideal thing.

Is there a way to incorporate both these items? I would like it to stay at 100% once the date passes and that it shows 0% instead of the #NUM! error if the date is in the future?

I am using the formula:

=MIN(1, (DATEDIF(B2,TODAY(),"d")+1)/(DATEDIF(B2,C2,"d")+1))

which is working great and leaves the percentage at 100% once the end date has passed.
