OK assuming you have a table Proj like this:

ProjectDueActual
A8/1/20177/30/2017
B8/1/20178/10/2017
C8/1/20178/5/2017
D8/1/20178/10/2017

 

 

Add two calculated columns to Proj:

Diff = IF(Proj[Due] > Proj[Actual],
          -DATEDIFF(Proj[Actual], Proj[Due], DAY),
          DATEDIFF(Proj[Due], Proj[Actual], DAY))

Status = IF(Proj[Diff] > 6,
            "Overdue",
            IF(Proj[Diff] > 0,
               "Delayed",
               "On Time"))

You can now easily display a simple table visual:

by placing the columns of Proj like this and chnaging the data colors appropriately:

Can you provide some more specifics on your data tables and what you want the graph to look like?

Hi Erik,

I have an excel sheet with about 100 rows of current projects, each has a due date.  In excel i would use conditional formatting to show green if the projects were within delivery time, yellow if they were within 6 days of the due date and red if they were over the due date. I am looking for a way to graphically represent this, even a bar chart of the three categories but I am unsure of the query that is needed...
