    formula help

    In Excel 2010, how would I express employee start dates as an anniversary date in the current year? Anniversary dates are always the first day of the month in which they started. So, an employee may have started June 13, 1985 and another person may have started December 3, 1995. Is there a formula that will convert those start dates to June 1, 2014 and December 1, 2014?

    Thank you. It made sense as soon as I saw it!

    Hi

    Another way is to use this custom format on the column:
    mm"/1/2014"

    This will keep the start date value, but will display it as the Anniversary date.

    This will need to be updated every year...
