I am trying to create a formula that will take a date in a list, display the
month and day of that list, and calculate the year from a different list to
add 1 year. Returning the date of the first list's month and day, and 1 year
added to the year of the second list.
Sorry, I'm confused too! 8o)
example: Today's date would be 6/19/08
List 1 list 2 Answer I'm
looking for
1/5/01 2/8/07 1/5/08
2/8/05 5/16/07 2/8/08
6/15/04 6/25/08 6/15/09
6/25/04 6/12/05 6/25/06
5/12/06 6/25/07 5/12/08

Assuming List 1 in column A, and List 2 in Column B

In C2: =DATE(YEAR(B2)+1,MONTH(A2),DAY(A2))

copy down as far as needed

Thanks, but I need it to advance 1 year if the date in B is after today's
date. Any idea's? I've playing with this for quite some time now with no
luck. I believe I found the correct formula but when I type it in, the
formula displays in the cell, not the result. Other formulas I've tried have
results displaying the last day of the previous month.
Thanks

Do you mean advance 1 year ONLY if the date in B is after today?
Because mama's formula does just that, advances the year by one.

Sounds like you had a typo in your formula, like no "=" at the
beginning.

Sorry my original question appears to have left that part out.
If the date in B is prior to today, add 1 year (with the month & day of A)
If the date in B is after today, the year would remain the same (with the
month & day of A)
Thanks
