Solved: Excel Formula if a date is exceeded

Question: Solved: Excel Formula if a date is exceeded

I'm looking for a formula for excel, but can't seem to fine tune one, or find an existing one.

The spreadsheet is for applications. If initial contact happens on say 7/20/2010 and the applicant has 5 days in which to respond, for example. I want a column that posts the due date for follow up automatically, and then also a column that says either NO or YES in regards to Follow Up Needed that also updates automatically based on Date Of Follow Up having passed.

I hope this makes sense. I'm going to attempt to put an example below.

Application Date Applicant Name Date Of Follow Up Follow Up Needed
7/20/2010 John Smith 7/26/2010 YES
7/25/2010 Jane Smith 7/31/2010 NO

EDIT: Well, it won't maintain the spacing, but that should give you an idea of what I mean.

Sorry for the newbie question, but here goes:

I am using Excel 2007 and I have a spreadsheet that uses 2 dates -- the buy and sell date. I have a column that calculates how long we held the product. I use an IF statement to put a zero in the column if the product hasn't been sold yet which looks something like this:

IF(ISBLANK(buy_date),0,(sell_date - buy_date))

Now I want to summarize the "time-to-sale". I want to count all "0" sales (unsold), all sales between 1-30 days, 31-60, 61-90, through the whole year. The problem is, I can't use a macro because this spreadsheet needs to be "macro-free".

HI guys,

I am using Microsoft Excel 2003 and am trying to create a scheduler for my work place.
What I have to do is allow the user to enter data in the input sheet (by input meaning Dates) and then accordingly scan the schedule sheet and find the date entered on the input sheet, following which print the appropriate schedule opposite that date for that particular project.

For Example .....
If a person is working on a project called apple in cell D (effectively making it the 3rd project in the list) and the user enters the project start and end dates as 5th June and 13th June. So what I have to do is scan the Schedule sheet for these dates and enter the appropriate text of Start and End before these dates in the D column (i.e under the respective project).

How to do this I am clueless as I am a complete idiot as far as excel is concerned. SO any idea or any sort of help as to how this can be achieved will help.

The sheet must be automated as far as possible and there are about 25 to 30 projects which need to be updated into the sheet before the final output.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Excel bill date if/then formula

The layout of your question doesn't make sense. You've got bullet 3 before bullet 2.Bullet 2 says to use the same month if the sign up date is the 9th, but your example uses the following month. (June 9, 2012 sign up becomes July 9, 2012 bill date)In addition, you said: "...a bill date, which always falls on the 9th of the month"".Then, under bullet 3 you said: "June 10, 2012 sign up becomes July 10, 2012 bill date".How can the bill date be the 10th if the bill date always falls on the 9th?It wouldn't make sense to offer a solution to a question that we don't quite understand.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Between date range H21-I21, place J21 (Amount) into D21 (amt) cell.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Answer:EXCEL - using a date dependant formula to hide rows

Is it necessary to hide the row? The only way you might be able to do that is with a macro, but I think it would be complicated and messy. A more simple way would be to use conditional formatting - for example you could make the text a light grey (or even white) if the conditions are met. It wouldn't hide the row, but it would mean the other rows stand out by comparison.

I haven't been able to quite get my functions right on this one and am hoping for some guru help.

I have a spreadsheet with dates in Column A (Contract Received) and Column C (Contract Filed). Not every cell has a date in one or both fields, as it is a tracking tool for work in progress. However, a contract must be Received before it can be Filed, so C will (er,should) never be blank if A is populated. I want to know the number of days lapsed between date Received and date Filed, and if date Filed is null, then number of days from Received to today's date. If the contract has not been Received, then no calculation should be performed. In spite of requests not to, users sometimes put text notes in these fields, so would be nice to ignore text. At bottom of column, I need to get an average of the time lapse on all filings to track productivity.

It basically starts with column A and determines whether there's a number there (a date, as opposed to text or blank). If not, it doesn't do anything, but if so, then it does the same thing with column C. If C has a number (date) then it subtracts A from C. If not, it subtracts today's date from A.

Let me know if I've misunderstood the question.

Our employees can sell such things as vacation time, for example, 1 day of vacation pay but their request must be submitted by a certain time if they are to be paid. We can tell them what day they will be paid based on the date they submit their request. This can be confusing for a supervisor to explain and I wanted to automate it on an Excel sheet.
1. Employees receive their regular check every Friday as well as a check for any time sold.
2. As long as they get it into us within 7 days prior to Friday they will receive their check the next Friday.
3. If it’s greater than 7 days then it would be the Friday after next before they received the sold time check.
4. For example If an employee requested on May, 12th 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, or 17th to sell vacation time that check would be received by the next Friday i.e. May 25th. However, if they turned it in on May 18th. 19th. 20th, 21st, 22nd., 23nd, or 24th. they would receive it on June 1st.
5. This pattern continues throughout the year. Note that weekends are included.
6. I think the attached will better explain what I am trying to do.

I need help trying to come up with a formula to calculate the sum of values (row 3), for the previous Friday to Yesterday's date i.e. Wed would sum Friday to Tuesday; Thursday would sum Friday to Wed...and Monday would sum Friday to Sunday.

My example is not posting correctly...but essentially Row 1 has Day headers (Monday, Tuesday, etc.); Row 2 has the actual date that corresponds with day header (3/7/2011, 3/8/2011, etc.); Row 3 has the values that I am wanting to sum according to criteria mentioned above. So for TODAY, 3/9/2011, I would like to sum the values of Friday, 3/4/2011, through Yesterday, Tuesday, 3/8/2011...and so on...

Hey guys,
I have a question about coding and setting an excel file to send emails. I am using an excel file to track maintenance work orders and I would like to get an email each day for each work order that is requested to be finished on that days date. I have attached the excel file I am using, and the column that is important is C, "Date Needed" - If that date is today's date, the cell turns red and I would also like to get email notification about it. A separate email for each cell that matches today's date.

Also, if possible, I would like for it to look at all the sheets, not just the current month's sheet. For example, if a work order was filed in July but wasn't needed until September, I would still like to get the email reminding me that it needs to be finished on xx date in September.

I have attached the excel file I want to use.

I have searched all over this forum and others and have found many posts similar to this, but I am not a great manipulator of code, so I cannot get any of the other solutions to work.

The access groups aren't in ascending order which I require and I can't for the life of me work out how to get all the access rows listed in ascending order without doing them one at a time (I tried using the sort function and it didn't really work - it changes everything but not actually into ascending order except for the first row).

I am hoping someone can help me with this, as I am most certainly lost. I am attempting to create a spreadsheet that allows me to enter ASVAB test scores and physical condition data (on sheet 1) for an applicant that then correlates to related cells (on sheet 2) and then if certain conditions are met, a Cell on (sheet 2) will then show results of either: "QUALIFIED" (cell filled in green) or "NOT QUALIFIED" (cell filled in red).
I am trying to see how to create this formula correlating the data from the multiple cells across two sheets with the results highlighting the one cell in one of two colors with the related text above.

Here is an example of what I am working with:

Using Data entered into:

C10 (sheet 1) => F4 (sheet 2)
and J4(sheet 1)=< P4(sheet 2)
and J7(sheet 1) =< Q4(sheet 2)
and J10(sheet 1) =< R4(sheet 2)

you say AND - so you should be able to use the AND function and conditional format

with results ending up in C4 (sheet 2) that display either:"QUALIFIED" (cell filled in green) or "NOT QUALIFIED" (cell filled in red).Click to expand...


=AND (
sheet1!C10 >= sheet2!F4,
sheet1!J4 <= sheet2!P4,
sheet1!J7 >= sheet2!Q4,
sheet1!J10 <= sheet2!R4,
sheet1!M4 <= sheet2!S4,
sheet1!M7 <= sheet2!T4,
sheet1!M10 <= sheet2!U4

that will give true or false

so now we add an IF

=IF ( the and statement, "QUALIFIED" , "NOT QUALIFIED")

so should look like this


=IF(AND(Sheet1!C10>=Sheet2!F4,Sheet1!J4<=Sheet2!P4,Sheet1!J7>=Sheet2!Q4,Sheet1!J10<=Sheet2!R4,Sheet1!M4<=Sheet2!S4,Sheet1!M7<=Sheet2!T4,Sheet1!M10<=Sheet2!U4),"QUALIFIED","NOT QUALIFIED")

and then use conditional format to set the colour based on qualified or non qualified

looked at your sheet wasnt sure where to put the formula as no sheet 1 or sheet 2

so i attached a sample here

and to test just change cell C10 to 1 or -1
as 1 will be true for the AND statement and -1 false
for C7

Once again I am stuck with a formula and hope for some kind soul to help me.
I clarified a similar issue a few months ago but can't quite recreate the result.

This time it's even easier (at least I think) - I want to use one column to either enter a digit or leave it blank (I do that manually). Another column will show with conditional formatting if stock levels are falling below thresholds, ie the cells don't contain any formula directly but only via conditional formatting. The formatting only provides for a colour background.

My aim is to override the colour background if the cell in the earlier column shows a digit. What should the formula be for something like : if cell k16 shows 1 then ignore conditional formatting in cell N16 or O16.

My intention is to have this row N show a black (alert) if attention is necessary but only for those stock items that are still relevant. For discontinued items (items 1-14) I can prevent the alert by referring to the other column (K).

I want to create a simple workseet where I track down my productivity based on the number of words I translate per 30 and 60 minutes. That way, I can know how much money I'm making (and not making) on a real time basis. So, I have something like this:


6.00 382 ---
6.26 576 194
7.01 760 184

Colum 1 is the time. Column 2 is the number of words I have completed IN TOTAL. Colum 3 would be the number of words I translated each 25/30 minutes (I'm using the Pomodoro technique) .

So in this case, I started at 6.00pm with 382 words already translated. By 6.26, I had 576, so I want to substract 576 - 382 to get the number of words I had translated in that time-lapse. Then I want to use those results, from column 3, to get my total average.

I've almost got it right each time, but since I copy/pasted a simple subtraction on column 3, I get a lot of zeros on the empty rows on column 2, which screws up my averages.

My input will be only the time and the number of words translated each time-lapse, I want the rest to be done automatically. Is there an simpler way to do this? I hope I explain myself enough, I'm not good with numbers.

I think this can be done, I just don't know how to work Excel that well.

I have a spread sheet with one column that has our 'rate'. We just found out the rate is going up 2 % then rounded up or down to the nearest $5 dollars. Is there a way to enter a formula to the 7 page spread sheet that is already typed to do this figure?

Thanks and as always kindest regards,

Hi Tim, welcome to TSG.

Someone's going to come along soon and give a cleaner way of doing this, I'm sure, but to get you started, you could try something like this:


The problem with it is that you'll have stray semicolons if there's nothing in column C. But give it a try and see if it gets you close to what you're going for.

if you do a replace and change the . to a /
then format the cells to date and
then you can just take one from the other

But that would calculate as 11 days

I am trying to come up with a formula using an IF statement. I have ten cells that I need to check if the cell contains a certain text. I have tried to use the AND function within the IF statement, but the problem is that 5 cells will contain the text needed, and the other 5 are blank. Since the other 5 cells are blank, the IF statement is coming out false.

Is there a way to write the IF statement that will ignore the blank cells? However, some or all the blank cells may need to be filled in later.

I have a formula in a cell to use the FIXED function. My formula looks like this:

=If(B9>5,Fixed(C9*L9),C9*L9) -> The result comes out to be 6

This part works fine. The formula above is located in cell E9.

I then have another formula in a cell (L9) that references the cell E9. However, the result that is diplayed in L9 is 6.3.

How can I get the formula in L9 to see the actual displayed value of 6 that is found in E9?

I'm not very good with formulae and would appreciate some help.

In cell U7, users will enter a customer account number. This can be any number of digits between 3 and 8. For example, 123, 12345, 1234567 etc.

The account number needs to be copied, as individual digits, to range AE7:AL7. The problem is that if there are less than 8 digits, missing digits must be filled with a zero, and must be filled starting at AE7. So, if an account number has only 7 digits, AE7 must be a zero, if an account number has only 5 digits, AE7, AF7 and AG7 must be a zero, and so on.

I've tried various combinations of MID, LEN and RIGHT but I can't quite get this right.

In summary, the formula needs to test the number of digits input in U7, extract each digit, and if less than 8 digits, it needs to insert zeros starting at AE7, then continue inserting each digit thereafter.

This is not my sheet, so I'm stuck with the current design.

Thanks for any assistance.

May I please ask for some expert advice with a formula? I've been trying to come up with something, but can't figure it out.

I'm trying to populate cells in column C with a rate that is based on columns A and B.

This is what I'd like to say:
If B2 equals USD, then add 1 in cell C2. If B2 equals AUD, and A2 equals 2013, then add 5 in cell C2. If B2 equals AUD, and A2 equals 2014, then add 7 in cell C2. If B2 equals CAD, and A2 equals 2013, then add 8 in cell C2. If B2 equals CAD, and A2 equals 2014, then add 9 in cell C2.

And my table looks something like this:

2 2014 AUD Need formula here
3 2013 USD Formula will be copied here
4 2014 CAD Formula will be copied here

In the attached .xls I have 5 tabs in total – 4 (A,B,C,D) with columns indicating Budget, Actual, etc., plus 1 Summary Worksheet.

I want to transfer the numbers (under ACT column “E” only in the A B C D tabs) to the ‘summary’ sheet without having to do it the long-way. Not all tabs have the same acc numbers - they have some in common - but not all; however, all acc numbers are on the summary sheet.

I thought a VLOOKUP – but I’ve only ever done one before a few years back – and I'm not sure if it would work in this case.

All I am trying to do is copy the contents of the cell from one worksheet to another to eliminate duplicate data entry. I have done it many times, but for some reason it is only showing the formula and not the cell contents.

I'm trying to find a formula for cell 4 which uses cells 1-3. I will give an example of what cells 1-3 will be and then what I need 4 to be.

Cell 1=35
Cell 2=44
Cell 3=5

So now I need Cell 4 to equal 4. The formula I need is similar to C1+/-5 (so 30-40) and then C2-40. Or if Cell 2 was 26 then I would need it to be the 30-C2. In both cases I need Cell 4 to say it equals 4 when Cell 2 is both 26 and 44. At the same time though cell 3 won't be fixed so if cell 3 was equal to 6 then cell 4 would equal 3 when cell 2 is 26 or 44. I know this is kind of confusing, I just don't know how to explain it.
