# Datedif But For Date In Future And To Return Formatted Time Value

Aug 4, 2009

I need to calculate the difference in Years, Months and Days between:

Date 1 = TODAY()
Date 2 = 4 years after a date in cell A1, which will always be earlier than today's date

(A bit of backround - I have certain risk management procedures that have a lifespan of 4 years. I want to calculate the time between now and 4 years after the date the procedure was completed, essentially to see how long before they have to be redone).

So far I have:

=DATEDIF(A1+4,TODAY(),"y")&"y "&DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"ym")&"m "&DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"md")&"d"

But that returns #NUM!.

Removing the +4 obviously just calculated the difference between the date in A1 and today, but I need the date in A1 PLUS 4 years and today.

I have also tried:

=(DATE(YEAR(A1)+4,MONTH(A1),DAY(A1))-TODAY())/365.25

which works in theory, however:
a) no consideration for leap years
b) does not return nY, nM, nD - only the decimal.

However I would be happy to use this method if I could convert it to Years Months Days.

## Input Future Date And Time Into One Cell

Oct 20, 2012

I need to input a future date and time into one cell. For example, if I have a member ship that ends on October 20th at 3:00 pm exactly the kind of format you get when you enter the function "NOW". I would like to put that into one cell and then be able to add and subtract from it.

For example I would like to do something like this, if I had inputed the date and time in A1:

"=Now-A1", it would be cool if I can get the remaining hours or minutes along with how many days are left but not completely needed.

It would also be beneficial if I can drill down further and do it by time zone as well.

## Calculate Future Dates From Start Date With Varying Time Period/cycle

Sep 11, 2009

I need to determine a formula which will allow me to calculate a future date based upon a current date with varying time periods.

For example:

I have a bill which is paid on the 15th and last business day of each month. I would like to be able to see the next due date regardless of what day of the week it is.

I have a bill which is paid every other Tuesday. I would like to know the next due date without having to enter +14 for every due date in the future. In other words, it is preferable to be able to open the spreadsheet and automatically see the next due date, not use autofill to repeatedly add +14 to a previous date which would limit the # of future due dates that could be calculated.

I have a bill which is paid on the last business day of each month, not the last Friday of each month. I would need excel to return a value for the last day of the month which = Monday-Friday, regardless of what day of the week it may be as long as it isn't Saturday or Sunday(holiday exclusion would be nice but not required).

## Text And Formatted Date & Time In Cell

Mar 19, 2008

I am trying to get a single cell to display the following:

Last Updated: 3/18/2008 15:08 (GMT+2)

Entering =NOW() in a cell displays the date and time as required.

But entering ="Last Updated: "&NOW()&" (GMT+2)" displays the date and time as a serial number. Formatting the cell to Date does not change the serial number to date and time format.

The only way I have found to get the desired result is to use =NOW() in another cell (F13), format that cell to general to get the date/time serial number, then use ="Last Updated: "&TEXT(F13,"m/d/yyyy h:mm ")&" (GMT+2)" in the required destination cell.

As I said this works, but it strikes me as an inefficient method. Is there a formula I can enter or formatting I can apply to get the desired result without using an addition cell?

The result needs to be in a single cell. Splitting text and date/time into 3 adjacent cells will not work with my worksheet setup.

## Comparing Current Time To The Time In Past And Future

Mar 27, 2013

It is currently 11.40 AM. When I evaluate

Code:
?Now() > TimeSerial(11,30,0)

I get True.

However, when I evaluate

Code:
?Now() < TimeSerial(11,50,0)

I get False.

Why is this?

## Compute The FuTure Date When Start Date,Lead Date,Weekly Offs,Leaves And Holidays

Nov 15, 2008

First and foremost I would like to congragulate you on this wondeful piece of code in the below link...

The query was to get a future date excluding Fridays and Holidays...

http://www.excelforum.com/excel-work...rkingdays.html

I have a similar query and therefore I pasted this link...

I actually wanted to get a future date using a Dynamic two day off as my the offs keep on changing as well as incorporate Holidays and Leaves if any..

Now Holidays would be official Public Holidays and
Leaves would be taken by the employee..

The code needs to pick the Leaves + Holidays and different offs maybe even more than 2 offs...

## Date Calculation - Datedif Function

May 11, 2006

I am trying to subtract two dates to find out whether an invoice is 6 months past due (regardless of number of days). I use DATEDIF in my formula and it works fine until now. It seems the function takes number of days into account and won't return the desire result when there are 31 days. I want to find out whether the number of months between two date are greater than or equal to 6 months without considering the number of days. I am attaching a sample worksheet for better explanation. As you can see, October is not working right.

## Datedif / Calculate The Date Difference Between Two Dates

Feb 21, 2014

I need to calculate the date difference between two dates and get the result in the number of years and proportion of months ie;

20/09/99 to 01/02/02 is 2.33333333 years. I can use the DATEDIF function to get 2 years 4 months as the result but for the calc I'm doing I need it in the format of 2.33333333. Thinking I just need to tweak the DATEDIF a bit but just can't work it out!

## Date Countdown: Results Of The Number Of Days Between Today And A Future Date

Apr 8, 2009

I am trying to get the results of the number of days between today and a future date. I am using ="cell containing futuredate"-today() and it gets me the correct number of days. The problem comes in when I have yet to populate the future dates. I am getting -39991 (numeric value between today and jan 01 01) and because I am also using conditional formatting this is even more of a problem. Is there a way get excel to display nothing if it is a negative number? or to give a specified resut if the number becomes negative such as Expired or something of that nature?

## Add And Subtract Date & Time To Return One Sum

Oct 31, 2008

I am trying to add/subtract dates and times to return one sum; but I only want to count the work week (5 days M-F) and work day (8 hrs.) 8am- 4pm. This is to compute the actual turn around time for a certain process.

i.e.:

The total hours this process should equate to is: 9days and 6hours.

way to achieve this sum?

## Add Future Date To Cell

Aug 2, 2006

I want to have a future date (30 days from today’s date) added to a cell in column A only if that cell is already blank and column N has an “O” in that same row. Here is the code that I have right now, and it works to add a value based on the conditions that I just described. I just don’t know how to get it to add a date to that is 30 days in advance of today’s date.

If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "O" And Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Value = "" Then
Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Value = "1"
End If

## Disable Program At A Future Date?

Dec 6, 2012

I am working as a private consultant for a company, and have put together a series of Excel applications, producing charts and providing some statistical guidelines. I will move on from here soon, and will take my work with me. I want to leave this product with the company, but it will become obsolete without some formula maintenance. Therefore, I would like to be able to have the program basically stop working at a future date. I don't really care if it freezes up, deletes itself or implodes. If not I am also afraid many copies of this program will be made and sent to others in my small community.

## How To Calculate Date In The Future And Subtract One Day

Nov 9, 2011

I'm trying to calculate a date in the future and subtract one day.

The date entered in N38 is 11/09/11.

The term entered in months in C8 is 24.

I want N39 to return the date 24 months in the future minus one day.

So N39 should dispay 11/08/13

How the heck do I do that?

## Automatically Calculate Date In The Future

Jul 25, 2007

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will automatically calculate a date in the future.

The future date calculated needs to take the time NOW (as the user completes a field) and determines if this is before MIDNIGHT on the following SUNDAY. If so it calculates the date as a Tuesday 2 weeks on. For example... I request a date now on 1st Jan which is a Thursday. This is before midnight Sunday and so the date calculated would be Tuesday 20th January.

If the time NOW is after MIDNIGHT Sunday and before the next TUESDAY.. ie 0001hrs on the Monday and 2359hrs on the Monday then the date returned should be Tuesday 3 weeks on.. e.g 27th.

It would also need a function that would allow the total number of referrals on a Tuesday to 20 at which point it would overspill and provide a date on the Friday of the same week.. so in the first example it would be Friday 23rd

Is this something that can be achieved with formulas and a set of dates for it to calculate from or do I need to find someone who can do it in VBA for me.

## How To Change Row Color Depending On Future Date

Dec 31, 2013

I have some real estate rental so what I did 7 columns and its includes: name, phone number, ....., contract start date, and contract expiry date.

my question is how to make the row color changes depends on the expiry date

for example, the expiry date is 12/10/2014. I want the the row to be red when 12/10/2014 comes.

## OR Or IF Adding: Display A Date 3 Months In Future?

Nov 19, 2009

Three columns.

A - Date last checked
B - Due Date
C - Actual Date checked

Currently column B simply has =A+84 and will display a date 3 months in future.. Great..

However now i want column B to still display the 3 month date - unless there is a date in C, whereby i want B to then display OK. SO what im sort of needing is =A+84 (or if somethings in C then "OK")

## How To Translate Number Of Months Into Future Date

Dec 9, 2009

I've developed a spreadsheet in Excel 2000 where one of the cells contains the number of months a quantity will last, calculated by taking the total amount and dividing it by the amount used each month (a constant).

I would like to have another cell where that number is translated into the future date that number of months represents, so that in addition to seeing how many months the total amount will last, one can see when the amount will be depleted.

For example, suppose it is December 9, 2009 (as it is now) and the number in the number-of-months cell is 6. Then, is there a way that when 6 is calculated, in another cell appears something like June 9 2010 or 6/9/2010 or 6/9/10 (assuming the computer's clock is correct)?

It would be nice if the formula would handle decimals too, such as the date for 6.4 months, but that's not essential.

## Function To Automatically Insert Future Date

Mar 14, 2013

I need to create a spreadsheet which will have a start date and duration on programme. Is there any way I am able to automatically insert the End dates based on the weeks on the programme?

Additionally, can a function insert a date for the reviews which should be every two weeks into seperate cells?

Name
start date
weeks on programme
End date
1st review

## Calculate Future Date Excluding Weekends

Aug 25, 2007

I am using the same structure to update another column, under the same sub:

If Target.Column = 5 Then '

Select Case Range("d69").Value
Case "CB1W"
Case "CB2W"
Case "CB3W"
Case "CB4W"
Case "CB5W"
Case "NI"
ActiveCell.Value = ""
Case Else
ActiveCell.Value = ""
End Select

I would like to apply the code to the whole column but if I change Select Case Range("d69").Value to Select Case Range("d2:1000").Value I get a Type Mismatch Error (13) - (on Case "CB1W" ) - column d cells are data validation drop down boxes that get their value form a named ranged :Lead_Status. The column is also formatted as Text. (I applied the code to d69 because I have data already in the other cells which I don't want altered till I have the code working)

I would also greatly appreciate your advice on how to incorporate the WEEKDAY function to exclude weekends for the DateAdd function.

## Calculate Future Date But Omit Weekends

Dec 27, 2007

I want to calculate a date that is 28 days in the future. I don't want to exclude any days - However - if the end date falls on a weekend or holiday, I would like to push it out to the next business day.

I currently have the weekends covered, but am stumped on the holidays.

(For weekends, I am using the WEEKDAY function on a hidden sheet, and then the following 3 IF statements:
IF today + 28 = Mon.-Fri., then give me today + 28.
IF today + 28 = Sat., then give me today + 30.
IF today + 28=Sun., then give me today + 29.

I have tried adding an additional IF statement to address a specific holiday - namely, President's Day on 2/18/08, which is a Monday - but it won't add the extra day, because I think my initial IF statement re: Monday being today + 28 is overriding it.

## 2007 Future Date From A Specified Date

Sep 15, 2009

I'm trying to design an excel sheet where a user will input a date of enrollment, and basing on this date, we would like to get a followup date after one month, and again followup after 6 months. However, I would like it to skip the weekends.

I tried it using: =EDATE(\$C\$2,1) works ok, however =EDATE(\$C\$2,6) gives me a date on Sunday.

## IF Function Using Cells Formatted As Time Hh:mm

Mar 28, 2014

I am trying to calculate the difference in time between two cells and if the difference is >= 8 Hours the result is 8 hours - 1 Hour if the result is less than 8 hours then the result stands. I have the following, but it returns 8 always.

The two cells are formatted as hh:mm

## Nested If Statement Using Time Formatted Cells

Nov 13, 2009

I am trying to build an if statement to test variables that are in time format and then perform a calculation.

I was able to get an example working if I convert the start times to integers rather than time values. However, the data won't be provided to me as integers.

So, I need a nested if statement (using "and") that will test for two situations using cells in time format or I need to write a macro to convert the time data to integer format. I've been working on the former most of the day and have hit a brick wall.

## Read Time Formatted Cell In VBA Macro

Mar 14, 2009

I've written a script to read all the values in an excel worksheet in to an array. The cell types differ from General or Text to Custom - HH:MM When I look through the array the script has returned the correct value for most but for the cells that are of a custom type an "incorrect" value has been returned. For example a cell of type Custom HH:MM which is 10:23:00 in the worksheet appears as 0.432638888888889 in the array. Is there a way to get the script to return the correct value?
Below is an extract of the code I've used

If objWorksheet.Cells(i, "D") <> "" Then
If objWorksheet.Cells(i, "F") <> "" Then
arrCULDEV = Split(objWorksheet.Cells(i, "F"), ":")
Redim Preserve arrSheetInfo(x)
arrSheetInfo(x) = arrCULDEV(0) & "," & arrCULDEV(1)
x = x + 1
i = i + 1
Else
i = i + 1
End If
End If

## How To Calculate Future Dates From Start Date On A Monthly Cycle

Sep 16, 2009

I'm trying to combine monthly calculations with "today" and with "workdays"

Example:

start date = 01/01/2009

today's date 09/16/2009

formula result = 10/01/2009 ; or if 10/01/2009 is a Sunday, result = 09/29/2009 (not 02/01/2009, 03/01/2009, etc)

=edate gives me a month but it doesn't skip weekends or calculate beyond today's date
