Is there a way to do this without using form rules? I want the 'completed date' to = the day the status is changed to 'completed'.

I just used Date Modified, ToDate([Date Modified]), for now, but I was wondering if there was a way to do this for when the multiple choice option 'Completed' is chosen so the completed date is changed to that date.

If the Status field is not logged, you could do this:

[Status]="Completed",ToDate([Date Modified])

The danger is if the record is modified again on a later date, the later date will show.

If the Status field is a logged field, you can use Left and Right statements to isolate the date in the text of the logged field.

ok but what if there is another condition... (I have no idea why this isn't working.)

[Status]="Completed" and IsNull([Date Complete]),ToDate([Date Modified]),[Date Complete])
