    Automatic date question (Office 97)

    I want to change a cells data automatically when a given date is arrived at as displayed in another cell.

    For example, A1 has a date format and is set to display the current date whenever the worksheet is opened. When A1 reaches a given date...such as February 1, 2002, I want the data in cell B2 to perform a function that will be defined in B2, but won't occur until February 1, 2002 is reached. So, B2 must have a formula that performs this function (not an issue here...that part is simple), and a formula that makes it occur when Feb. 1,2002 is reached.

    I've played around with the =IF(NOW() formula but haven't been successful, and don't know if that is the correct attack anyway.

    Thank you all,
    BH Davis

    What would be the correct formula to do so.

    How about something like this in B2:

    <pre>=IF(A1=DATEVALUE("2/1/2002"),MyFunc()," No")
    </pre>
