Default Complicated formula please help asap!

I am working on a microsft excel spreadsheet for my boss( excel 2000). We are
working on a spreadsheet dealing with a lot of formulas. I have one column
that tells whether a work is lat eor not. This formula automatically enters "
late" or "on time" which is great, but if a work is late then i must chnage
the date in one of the columns so I know the actual due date. The problem is
the column I must change the due date is one of the ones in the formula for
the status column and when I change that date for our records it
automatically changes the work to on time when in reality it wasn't. I was
wondering if there is any way that after I enter that inital date if I can
get the status to stay at either "late" or "on time" and it will not chnage
when I change the new due date. Is there a way I can adjust the formula to
this?
This is the formula I am using for the status =IF(TODAY()<=L75, "On
Time","Late"). This is the formula for the due date =W75-4. Please help if
you can!

Hi

I can't think of a way around this without VBA programming. Maybe you could
use an extra column and type in a * when the job overruns - to show that the
date has been changed. Your formula could then be:
=IF(OR(TODAY()L75,M75="*"),"Late","On time")

Is that any use to you?

This may or may not be possible for you but I would just insert another
column in the sheet to enter the 2nd date. That way you would not be
affecting the formulas as you have outlined. This column would only have
date data in it if that particular entry was 'Late'

Hi,
I'm still kinda new at excel. They are wanting me to keep this spreadsheet
as simple as possible whne it comes to having to enter numbers. When I add a
column though it seems to throw off the whole formula for the "on time" or
"late" column. Is there any way to avoid that?

Inserting a column should automatically adjust your formulae. What do they,
and the data, look like?

My data is as follows ( I'm not sure if you need all this information, but I
will go ahead and give it to you) : a date column, then a due date column,
invoice amount column,prepress column, then a proof out column, proof
completion column and then a status column. The main 2 columns I am working
with are the Proof completion column and the status column. In the completion
column in the date in which the proof was returned and if it and less then 4
days before the due date it will show up late in the status column. The
formula for the completion column is =X78-4. In the status column in order to
say whether it is "on time" or "late" the formula is =IF(TODAY()<=L78, "On
Time","Late"). I tried inserting a new column, but now the status column will
not change status when a new number is entered. I tried the formula I was
given in the previous reply to my post as well and it would not work either.
Have any idea?

Hi

One way:
Rename date column you have now as PlannedDueDate. Beneath it add another
column named as ActualDueDate. When PlannedDueDate was p.e. column B, then
into C2 enter the formula
=IF(B2="","",B2)
, and copy it down (you can have this formula ready waiting for an entry
into another column). Whenrever you enter planned due date, the same date is
displayed as actual due date too.

Now when the work will be late, then overwrite the formula with new date -
you will have different planned and actual due dates for this work.

In formulas referring to due date, you have now to decide, which one you
have to refer to. P.e. in status formula, you have to refer to planned due
date - the work will be late anyway when planned due date is missed.

I believe that is what this forula is doing =IF(TODAY()<=L30, "On
Time","Late") but I am not sure. Should I replace this formula with the one
you gave me? My boss set up this sheet and then just handed it to me so I'm
not positive on how all the formulas in it work.
