    How to combine multiple column based on null and create a single column

    J CK

      Hello Data people!!!


      I am breaking my head to find a solution the below mentioned challenge, i have a set of data as mentioned below.


      These are the life stages of a particular item, I want to do a calculation which tells me, which stage my item is based on the date of stage finished.


      For eg: my item no# 1 is in Stage 2, based on the finished date of Stage1.


      I have my target or future column in green on the right.


      Also attached a spreadsheet of the same content.


      Any help is appreciated   Thank you!!!!!!
