IF formula not working to pull data from two columns

This formula is not working to pull data from the two formula columns (Days Actually Out and Backdata days out) I want. It seems so simple. If the DATE OUT is before or is today, pull this number. If the date is AFTER today, pull another.

IF({Date Out} <= TODAY(), {Days Actually Out}, IF({Date Out} > TODAY(), {Backdata days out}))

It currently only pulls the ‘Backdata days out’ data for this column. . . Can anyone tell me if this is a no-no in AirTable or if I’m doing something wrong?
