if then statements with dates in excel

Question: if then statements with dates in excel

How do I write an If/Then statement in excel to change data to red if it's 6 months old? I have one field for the current date, B2, and a column of dates, B6-B40, that I want to know if the dates are older than 6 mo from today's date. If they are older then 6 months from today's date, I want the dates in column B and their corresponding data in column A to turn red. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hi,I am looking to write If statement that if I write a date into cell A2, then A1 will display "Good" if its within 4 years since the date in A2, or A1 will display "Expiring Soon" if its between 4-5 years after A2, or A1 will display "Expired" if its 5 years after the date in A2. I have never used If statements with dates before so I don't know where to start and any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,

Answer:How to If Statements Using Dates in Excel?

re: "if its within 4 years since the date in A2"By its I assume you mean today's date. If so...Take a look at the EDATE function. EDATE returns the serial number that represents the date that is the indicated number of months before or after a specified date (the start_date).e.g. For your 5 year (60 months) expiration criteria, this should work.=IF(EDATE(A2,60)<TODAY(),"Expired","")Basically what this says is "If I add 60 months to the date in A2 and the result is less than today's date, then the date in A2 must be more than 5 years ago."The "inverse" of that is to subtract 60 months from today's date to get the same result:=IF(EDATE(TODAY(),-60)>A2,"Expired","")Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.message edited by DerbyDad03

I am working with an Excel file and I have today's date autopopulating in cell C1 using the NOW function. In cell b12 I enter the date of an instance, for example 4/15/2013, then in C12 I am using the function of IF(B12="","",SUM(B12+30)) to give me 30 days from the date. In cell H12 I am trying to have that cell autopopulate if the date in C12 is older than today's date in C1. I have written the formula the way I feel it should work, but it is not working yet. Here is what I have =IF(C12="","",IF(C12<C2,"","X")). Once I get that working there is another formula for me to add where it turns the line red if there is an X in H12. It seems like a lot of stipulations and connections and I know if one thing is off, then more than likely even more will not work.Thank you

Answer:Excel if then statements using dates

I don't see where you are using C2 for anything, so I can't answer any question related to IF(C12<C2,"","X").BTW, if you are only dealing with Dates, why not use =TODAY() instead of = NOW()?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Answer:IF statements with dates

When you say "List for someone to select = T+1. T-0, T-1 etc..." do you mean a Data Validation Drop Down List?If so, something like this might work.Column A contains the values for your Drop Down ListColumn B contains your launch dateColumn C contains the actual Drop DownColumn D contains the formula shownFor T-2, the formula will return 2/2/2014.
1 T-2 2/16/2014 T-2 =RIGHT(C1,LEN(C1)-1)*7+B1
2 T-1
3 T+0
4 T+1
5 T+2
Note, if the "T" values will always be a single digit, then you can use this:=RIGHT(C1,2)*7+B1Using the LEN function as above allows for any value, such as 20, 137, etc., as long as the value doesn't result in an invalid date.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I am trying to create a timesheet spreadsheet (in Excel 2013) and I need it to identify if a specific date is a bank holiday and input "bank holiday" for example I have tried inputting=if(C16=04/05/2015,"Bank Holiday","")C16 is the starting date for the weekly timesheet.It only returns the "" bit even though I know 4th may 2015 is a bank holiday.Any help would be very welcome.message edited by euromadman

Answer:If statements for bank holiday dates

Excel is evaluating the 4/5/2015 as a number, not a date.To prove this to yourself, click on the cell containing the formula. then click on the Formulas tab, then "Evaluate Formula". Each time you click the Evaluate button, you can watch Excel perform each evaluation step. Eventually you will see 04/05/2015 replaced with 0.000397022332506203, which is not a date.Try this formula instead, so that Excel knows that you are looking for a date in C16:=IF(C16=DATEVALUE("4/5/2015"),"Bank Holiday","")Another option is to put a list of all of your holidays in a list then use ISNA and MATCH to see if the C16 Date is in that list.=IF(ISNA(MATCH(C16,$B$2:$B$10,0)),"","Bank Holiday")The ISNA function checks to see if the MATCH function found a match. If the MATCH function returns #N/A, it means that no match was found and ISNA will return TRUE. The IF function will use the TRUE to return an empty cell.Once again, you can use Evaluate Formula to follow the steps.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I have no idea if this is even possible, but I would like to create a spreadsheet that auto-populates a series of dates based on one date that the user enters. Let's say I have a goal date to complete a project, and for every project I work on, something needs to happen 6 weeks prior to the goal date, another thing needs to happen 4 weeks prior to the goal date, and something else needs to happen 1 week and 5 days before the goal date. I would like to set up 4 cells in Excel: one for the goal date, and three for the various things that need to happen leading up to that goal date. I would like to be able to enter the goal date into the main cell and have the other three cells auto-populate with the correct date based on what I enter in the goal date. For example, if I enter a goal date of 11/01/2016, I would like the other three cells to automatically populate themselves with: 09/20/2016 (6 weeks prior), 10/04/2016 (4 weeks prior), and 10/20/2016 (1 week and 5 days prior). Is this possible? Can Excel return dates in that way?

Answer:How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

Sure, it's easy. Excel internally stores Dates and Times as numbers. Each day is a whole number and time is the decimal portion of that day. See here for a pretty good explanation of how Excel deals with Dates and Times as well as links to all the various Date and Time functions that Excel offers: for your question, simply subtract the number of Days required from the cell with the Goal Date.With 11/01/2016 in A1, use this to return 9/20/2016:=A1-42(42 is 6*7, or 6 weeks.)I'll leave the other two formulas to you. ;-)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

If the answer is Yes, they are classified as "small", but if it is no, then...does the company meet 2 of the following criteria?: have turnover between 5.6 million (cell Q6) and 22.8 million (cell Q12), balance sheet total between 2.8 million (cell Q5) and 11.4 million (cell Q13), between 50 (cell Q6) and 250 (cell Q14) employees.

Answer:Using Vlookup and IF/And Statements in Excel

Hi,From what I can gather from your formulas, you want to return one of four columns in the range A2:D4 on the freight worksheet, based on whether C9 is Blank or not and whether G30 is less than 23000 or not.The actual value returned from columns 2 to 4 in the range depends on the value in B5 (using the VLOOKUP() function).If I have this right, there are four initial conditions:C9 blank/G30<23000C9 not blank/G30<23000C9 blank/G30>=23000C9 not blank/G30>=23000C9 blank/G30<23000 returns column 2 data as far as I can see, but it is not clear which column to return for the other 3 combinations.Can you specify the columns for all four combinations.Regards

If one of the two conditions in case one satisfies, then the output should B, The same for case two. Additionally, everything should be in one statement.

Hey Guys,

I'm writing a Macro for Excel that takes data from one spreadsheet and presents it neatly (and printably) in another. Part of the information is the Status of the project, which is represented by a color (Green, Red, Yellow.) The first spreadsheet contains this information, but only in black and white. The second sheet pulls this information directly from the first in order to fill in the appropriate area.

My question is whether or not it would be possible for the second sheet to display the status in the color that it should be using an if than statement. The limitation I'm hitting is that the content of the cell is not "green" or "Yellow", but "=DynamicReport!A4" because it's pulling the color from the first sheet. Any thoughts?

However if in cell A1 "BillsVariable" is selected instead of BillsFixed I don't want a drop down menu to appear in cell B1, allowing the user to enter what the variable bill actually is.

Keep in mind that we can't see your spreadsheets from where we're sitting, so we have no reference point from which to evaluate your formula.That said, that doesn't look like a typical IF statement that checks a cell for a value/string and returns a value based on what it finds.Please read the How To in the following line and then post some examples of your data and the expected results based on those examples.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

ok this should be stupidly easy but i cant find an answer anywhere.

i want to make an IF statment in excel do more then one thing given a certain outcome.
IE: IF(True, A1="this" A2="that",A3="THG" A4="Sucks")

so if true
cel a1 says this, a2 says that

but how do i make it do both things what is the command that lets me do both.
i was thinking & or something..

i want it to do THIS and THAT
is this doable?

Answer:stupid excel question Re: If Statements

I've never found a way to use an IF statement to alter the contents of ANOTHER cell. As I understand it, the IF statement (and related functions) exist only to return a result to that specific cell. I would love if there were an Excel guru who could correct me.

What you could do is just use different IF statments in each cell. Example:

Cell A1 = 1

In B1 =if(a1=1,"THIS","")
In C1 =if(a1=1,"THAT","")

and so on through the cells that you want to set up. This is the only way to do it using the IF statement that I know of.

If you want to use macros, that'll work without a problem. You could throw a button on the page and have it pressed to return a result to as many cells as you want.

I have set up a workbook for calculating permit fees based on the following:
Area (where in the City you live)
ITE Code (the type of building)
The formula will ultimately reference a total of 11 worksheets (1 worksheet for each geographical area of the

city). The user will select the area from a pull down menu, look up the code and the formula then pulls the fee

information from the necessary worksheet. Everything works, but Excel will not allow me to exceed 7 IF

statements, so I am looking for another approach to the problem. Currently the formula (I am only showing

the first two worksheets, looks like this:



The cell C9 has a pulldown that allows only 1 of the 11 possible geographical areas within the city to be

chosen. The cell B9 contain the ITE Code. Each worksheet contains the same list of ITE codes. All ITE

codes are held in column A of each worksheet, hence the need to reference the sheet and range A11:A100.
The E column of each worksheet contains the calculated fee value for a corresponding ITE code for that

geographical area. As each worksheet contains a series of predetermined values unique to that

geographical area, it is not possible to combine the worksheets. Besides, each year they are updated.
Any help, I can get would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Excel formula with multiple If statements

hi MAXC....

first of all....
I don't think that Excel has maxed you on 7 IF statements.
It's probably a case of your formula exceeding the maximum number of characters for the cell.


you should be tying all of this to some Conditional Statements in a VBA routine. Do you work with macros/VBA at all?

All of these ranges of values that you mention can be handled much more efficiently and elegantly within code (not in-cell formulas).

So the question becomes:
can you code in Excel VBA at all?

Answer:Excel multiple if statements for commission

IMHO, this seems far too complicated to achieve all in one go. In fact, I'm having difficulty understanding what you are trying to achieve.
Its not clear whether you are doing this in Excel or Access. You should get away with it in Access, if you can get it right, but your documentation for future updating will need careful writing. In Excel ... !!!
I recommend that you take it one step at a time. Use interim stages to show what you have achieved to date. In Excel, you can always hide the interim columns once you have your work completed, and in Acess, the interim stages may well have a use later.

Not knowing what your numbers and/or dates look like, it's hard to give a specific answer.For example, if all of your dates were equal to or later than 1/1/2014 and all of your numbers were less than 41640, you could use this:=SUMIF(A1:A10,"<41640")Since 1/1/2014 is stored internally as 41640, it can be treated just like any other number as far as the SUMIF function is concerned.If we had some specifics about your data, perhaps we could offer something to fit your exact needs.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I need Col H to look up the value in Col G and tell me the result (Green, yellow, red) based on the ranges.

My end result needs to be colored cells (green, red, yellow) with the corresponding color as text in the cell (so a green shaded box would have the text "Green" displayed)

How can I do that? Please help!
Thank you so much!

Answer:If/and statements or conditional formatting (MS Excel 2007)

The result of your lookup can give you the color in word

with conditional formatting if value = "red" choose for pattern color red , etc.

Hi there,

I am using Office 365 Excel 2013, but we do not have access to the Cloud features. I think we are on
Windows 7.

What I am trying to do is create a spreadsheet for our managers to check off when a task has been completed. When they check the forms control box, the forms control box in B17 is assigned to say M17 and the word TRUE populates M17. The other form boxes are relative to the "results" cell. (Note if there is not check in the forms box then the "results" cell is either FALSE or is blank). Once all the boxes are checked, I want to change the cell color of A16 (title Accounts Payable) to green and generate an email notifying me saying Accounts Payable tasks are complete.

Here is a sample - I have also uploaded a copy of the excel document.

I realize that the email being sent out takes VBA programing and I think I have an example of this but haven't tried it yet. Is what I want to do possible? Is there a better way to go about doing this?

How do you plan/want the email to be sent? What email program are you currently using on your computer? I would assume Outlook since you have Office, but not sure.

Answer:Dates and Excel

If you want an exact match, you need to use FALSE or 0 in your VLOOKUP as the optional range_lookup argument:=VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)Review the VLOOKUP Help file to see the options for this argument.If an exact match isn't found, this will return #N/A, so wrap the formula in an IF(ISNA()) function to get a "" of 0 if the VLOOKUP evaluates to #N/A. This will return "":=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0))

What a great help this forum is.
I know nothing at all about VBA, yet managed to get a macro in excel that allows me to send the "due date" emails that works almost perfectly for my needs. I based my macro on the code found here
But i'm still missing one function in this macro for it to be perfect for my needs. I want it to send only one email to the "area manager" specifying all the items (serial number and location) that follow my due-date rule (instead of one email per item). I want it to send a list of items that are due this month for example.
Is it possible?

Hi there.

I am trying in Excel 2007, to do the following:

A guy phones in a fault. The date and time are recorded. When the fault is fixed, the date and time are recorded again. I need to calculate the response time, but I need it to only look at business hours, which are 8 to 5, Monday through Friday, when calculating this. Some faults may stretch over more than one working day, or over a weekend.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I am having problems working on a spreadsheet of dates and am looking for help. I am creating a file to show membership ages and senority in our area. Here is my setup.The first column: "Members name". Second column: "Date of birth". Third column: DOB converted to automatically updated "Age" by Year and Month with "Datedif". Fourth column: "Hire date". Fifth column: Hire date automatically converted to "Length of Senority" by Year and Month with "datedif".I want to get the totals and averages of the Age and Senority columns. I think I have the averages worked out by using =AVERAGE(B2:B49) and then converting that with =DATEDIF(B53,TODAY(),"Y")&" Yr, "&DATEDIF(B53,TODAY(),"YM")&" M". But I am not having any luck with the totals.Can anyone help?

Does Excel (version 9.0) have a feature which will allow me to compute various day/month/year time lapses? For instance can I compute the number of months between Oct. 1, 2003 and September 31, 2013? Or if I want to determine what day it is 25 years from today? I can do this on my handheld, but would like to design an Excel formula for it. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Computing Dates in Excel

Use the datedif function

i.e. =DATEDIF(Date1,Date2,"Interval")

Date1 is Start Date
Date2 is the end date
Interval is one of the following: You must use the inverted commas

"m" Months
The number of complete months between Date1 and Date2.

"d" Days
The number of days between Date1 and Date2.

"y" Years The number of complete years between Date1 and Date2.

"ym" Months Excluding Year
The number of months between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"yd" Days Excluding Years
The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"md" Days Excluding Months And Years
The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same month and the same year.

I am trying to do the following:If the date is before 1/1/2014 in cell I15 I want cell J15 to say "yes". If the date is after 1/1/2014 in cell I15 I want cell J15 to say "no".Then, in another cell, I want if cell I15 is between 1/1/2014 and 1/1/2015 I want the value in G15 to be placed in cell K15.

Answer:If Statement in Excel with Dates

For the J15 formula, what do you want to return if the date in I15 is equal to 1/1/2014?The same question holds for the formula in K15: What if the date equals one of the 2 dates that you are checking for?BTW, the solution will be based on the IF function.

I have imported data from an outside database and it brought in the dates seperated. The information is in columns and the day, month (which is in text), and year each have their own cell. There are hundreds of dates. Due to space considerations I need each date to only take one cell. Is there any way to do this without having to do it by hand?

Answer:Solved: Dates in Excel

Not sure which version of Excel you are using, but am assuming 2007. I will also mention what to do if you are using 2003 or earlier

Create a blank worksheet and do the following so that you can see how the following formula works and then how to convert it as a value rather than a formula

In A1 type 24
In B1 type June
In C1 type 1990

Assuming you have similar data in the Columns A, B and C, copy the formula in D1 down column D until you have a formula for each row of data in A, B, C

Select all the formulas in column D and click on Home Ribbon tab ans click on the Copy Icon to place it in the clipboard. 2003 and earlier Edit, Copy

Whilst those cells are still selected click on Home ribbon tab and click on the little down arrow just under the Paste button and select paste values. 2003 and earlier Edit, paste Special, Values OK

Your data in column D will now be as a date (not a formula) which in the background is treated as a number, which then allows you to do calculations on the dates.

Now select columns A, B and C and delete those columns

You are now left with column A and the dates in single cells.

Hope that helps

I have a strange problem I hope someone can shed some light on

I want to make a new column of months from a date
I have a detached with column A as a normal date format 01/12/2006 DD/MMM/YYYY
I then in column B use the month function - so = month(A1)
it displays 12 - and if I go onto the Fx to see the expression helper / wizard
I get told that i get a number returned 1-12 here 1 = Jan and 12 =dec

so that i format the =month(a1) into a MMM-YY format and
get Jan-1900 - I'm cool with the 1900 as i have not specified YYYY but why do i get Jan returned instead of Dec

But what I'm after and maybe a simpler way is to have a dropdown on my pivot table of MM-YYYY from my date field rather than DD-MMM-YYYY

so I can choose and show month data

I'm sure I did this in the past just by using format - MMM-YYYY on a date field and it worked in the picot table OK

any help appreciated

I am trying to subtract two dates in excel but I keep getting weird results...

My dates are formatted like this: 8/11/2010

I am using TODAY() to return the current date. Then I want to compare that to see how many days have passed since a given date. So my formula is this: =TODAY()-D2

Now, it seems to kind of work because the result I get is 1/30/1911. 30 days is the correct answer! But why am I getting the full date?? How can I fix this? And why the heck is it saying 1911 - on another computer I tried it says 1/30/1900...


Answer:subtracting dates in excel... help please!

Look into the Datediff function. I think for what you want (doing this from the top of my head) is Datediff("d", D2, TODAY()) or you can sub TODAY() for NOW(). Like I said it is from the top of my head but should be something like that.

Some times I have only the year (eg 1914). Other times I have the full date (eg 12/25/2011). If I format the Excel for as a date and enter merely 1914, it shows as 3/28/1905 (its reading only the "1914"). I do NOT want to enter 1/1/1914 - because that is an incorrect date (all I have is the year 1914). What I want: If I have only the year, I want only the year (eg 1914) to show. If I have the full date, I want the full date (eg 12/25/2011) to show. How do I do it? Does it require an IF statement?

Answer:Formatting Dates in Excel

Not sure what it is your after, but Excel stores dates and times as a number, representing the number of days since January 1, 1900So when you enter 1914, Excel reads it as 1,914 days since 01/01/1900or 03/28/1905.See this page for a complete explanation of how Excel works with Dates/Times:

Dates input to Excel are being treated simply as a text string and not recognised as dates. Apparently, all was OK until recently (this is a friend's problem). Old spreadsheets suffer the same problem, so it seems to be a global problem.Any ideas please?

Answer:Excel not recognising dates

The cells have to be formatted to accept dates rather than text or numbers. Goto Format/cells after selecting those that need to be dates.

This should be simple and I thought I had it nailed, but the formula is not working, so I am obviously doing something wrong.I have two adjacent columns. The first column is always populated with a date and the second column may be populated with a date or may be blank. I am trying to determine if one or both dates are greater than 3/1/2008, then the row is "OK"; if neither date (or if the second column is blank) is before 3/1/2008, then that row is out. Here's what I tried to use: =IF(OR(H2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008"),I2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008")),"OK""OUT").The formula just does not return the correct result. Thanks for the help.

I don't quite understand how the "IMAC or Out of Scope" information relates to your question.If all you are trying to do is compare 2 values (dates) a simple IF function should do it for you:=IF(A1>B1, "Missed", "")This will return Missed when A1 is greater than B1 and return a blank cell if not.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Quick question.

Lets say I have a date.


Is there a formula that would return and IF statement?

For example

I am looking to all the dates between 12/15 and 01/15

I have tried to create a formula using the IF statement, but cant only get the first half.


But how do I get the second half for it to check if if the date is less then 01/15? every time I try I get an error.

Answer:Solved: Excel Dates

Howdy. If I understand correctly. Be sure to check year, since the year will be in the cell whether it displays or not.
