    Altering a DATE in a cell

    I have a cell that is automatically updated to the first of every month, so
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    .
    In another cell, I want a formula to take the year of this date and put it at December 1, 20**.
    So this year =DATE(2015,12,1)
    and then next year, when my first date cell goes to =DATE(2016,1,1) I want this other cell to automatically go to =DATE(2016,12,1).

    In essence I need a formula to extract the last month of the year from the original date cell.

    I hope this makes sense...

    If the first formula is in A1

    =DATE(YEAR(A1), 12, 1)
    Is that what you are looking for?
