    Cool Formula not working =IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",N4-M4))

    If column N "Resolution Date" is blank, result is blank
    If Column N is not blank, then subtract Resolution Date from Colum M" Submit Date" result is Days to Approve

    This formula has been working, but isn't working today
    =IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",N4-M4))

    (Computer upgraded to Win 10 & Office 2013 (not sure if this made a difference or not)

    Column M N O
    Label Submit Date Resolution Date Days to Approve
    Sample1 2/16/17 2/16/17 0
    Sample 2 2/6/17 blank blank
    Sample 3 2/6/17 2/7/17 2

    Help Please

    Re: Formula not working =IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",IF(ISBLANK(N4),"",N4-M4))

    What I see is that the formula is checking N4 twice, which seems odd, is it supposed to check N then M?
    When you say "is not working" what do you mean exactly? formula returns an error, does not put blank when N4 is blank, doesn't do the subtraction....

    That worked

    I figure someone messed with the formula, but I couldn't remember what the original formula was

    Thanks a bunch!!!

    Glad it was sorted, I'm assuming AlKey's post is the one that did it. If the issue is fixed please remember to mark the thread as solved? Thanks
