Show Completed Vs. Pending Projects in a View

Show Completed Vs. Pending Projects in a View

Show Completed Vs. Pending Projects in a View

HI,  I’m still new and self taught to Notes design and this is the first post for me, so go easy.

I have an activity db that I want to build a view to show Completed and Pending activities.  Everything worked great until the users started entering future dates for projects.  (Ex.  ProjED 12/31/02.)

My initial way to determine pending vs. completed was the absence of an ProjED on the form.  Now I need to determine if the ProjED is in the future or past before I can determine Pending vs. Completed.

I tried the following code, and received this message:  
Comparison Operators must be supplied the same data type

Today := @Today;
PED := Project_End_Date;

@If(PED =< Today  ; "Complete" ; "Pending")

I do not know how to proceed.

Can anyone help?

RE: Show Completed Vs. Pending Projects in a View

Have you tried using LotusScript instead of Formula Language?  Or using a hidden field and basing the view on the contents of that field?

Good Luck,

I don't currently have the skills to do that with LotusScript.  I wouldn't know where to start.  About the hidden field, I can do that.  I just did not think about it.
