Hi Robert. Welcome to extending Project functionality using custom fields. It adds a lot to what Project can do for you. I also like your thoughts on managing material submittals. Custom fields can be hard to get started but a little background and a lot of searching can go a long way. This formula is actually pretty simple. Use a Number field and simply subtract Field 3 from the current date: [Current Date] – [Field 3]. That will give you a number that you can use to set your graphical indicators: >5-Red, >=0-Yellow, Red. This should work as Project will take the first valid test. Good luck…
