    Dates (97)

    Hi,
    I am working on a spreadsheet for a lady at work, we use Excel 97, and I am trying to calculate one date and have another returned. The first column is a Name field, the second is a user added date, I would like to add 90 days to the user added date and have Excel return a date to a third column. I want to do this for 4 consecutive columns always adding 90 days to the date in the previous column. Does anyone know if this can be done, and if so how? I appreciate any, and all suggestions, thanks in advance.

    if the date is in B2, then simply use =B2+90.

    If the user added is formatted as a date and is in B2, then tn C2 you could palce the formula : <pre> =B2+90</pre>

    and it should add 90 days to the value in B2. Adopt a similar formula for all the other columns. When adding numbers to dates , it is assumed you are incrementing the days, so it is simple addition.

    Hope that helps

    Have you tried adding 90 to the cell with the date? (ex. =B3+90) You may need to format the result to appear as date, then copy it across the other 4 columns where you want displayed. This is a quick way, but there are other date functions in Excel if you should only want it to count workdays, for example.

    Thank- you All

    Thank you for the reply and information.
    Using the =B2+90 in my particular cells works, I thought it would be more complicated than that, since the first time I tried that it didn't work. Thanks again, your help is greatly appreciated!
