Creating an entry based upon a date compared to today

I have a status collumn that populates based upon a date column.  It works great except for the highlighted portion.  What I need to happen if the Approved Date field is blank and today is later than the Due Date field then I need the status approval field to show Overdue. Right now if the Approved Date is blank and today is later than the Due Date it still shows as In Process
 
Status Approval = IF(ISBLANK([Approved Date].[Date]), "In Process", IF(ISBLANK([Approved Date].[Date]) && (ISBLANK([Due Due].[Date]>TODAY()), "Overdue", IF([Approved Date].[Date]>[Due Date].[Date],"Late","On Time"))))

It would be helpful next time (or if this doesn't work) to include some sample data to work with.

The order matters with these statements, so try this instead.

Status Approval =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
ISBLANK ('Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date])
&& ('Execution Status'[Due Date].[Date]) < TODAY (), "Overdue",
ISBLANK ( 'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] ), "In Process",
'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] < 'Execution Status' [Due Date].[Date], "On Time",
"Completed Late"
)

Hi,

Try this calculated column formula

Status Approval = IF(ISBLANK([Approved Date]),IF(TODAY()>[Due date],"Overdue","In Process"),IF([Approved Date]>[Due Date],"Late","On Time"))

Hope this helps.

If I understand you correctly, maybe something like this...

Status Approval =
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    ISBLANK ( '[Approved Date].[Date]' )
        && '[Due Due].[Date]'
            > TODAY (), "Overdue",
    '[Approved Date].[Date]' > '[Due Date].[Date]', "Late",
    ISBLANK ( '[Approved Date].[Date]' ), "In Process",
    "On Time"
)

PowerBI doesn't like that

Try removing the single quotes maybe?

Had to do that and add the table name.  Not throwing an error anymore, but still not populating the field correctly.

 

Overdue seems to be working correctly, but the filed is populating with On Time when the Approved date field is blank.  That should be "In Process". The "Completed late" calcuation appears to be correct as well.

 

Status Approval =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
ISBLANK ('Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date])
&& ('Execution Status'[Due Date].[Date]) < TODAY (), "Overdue",
'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] < 'Execution Status' [Due Date].[Date], "On Time",
ISBLANK ( 'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] ), "In Process","Completed Late"
)

It would be helpful next time (or if this doesn't work) to include some sample data to work with.

The order matters with these statements, so try this instead.

Status Approval =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
ISBLANK ('Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date])
&& ('Execution Status'[Due Date].[Date]) < TODAY (), "Overdue",
ISBLANK ( 'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] ), "In Process",
'Execution Status'[Approved Date].[Date] < 'Execution Status' [Due Date].[Date], "On Time",
"Completed Late"
)

That did the trick.  Thank you so much for your help.  Still trying to learn all of this.

Happy to help.
