    IF - Date triggered by specific text value

    First post, so hopefully I attached my example properly.

    I want to be able to insert "Y" into Column D in order to populate in column E the date in which the "Y" was entered.

    I want G to produce the date in which both D & F have "Y".

    I have used formula's such as =IF(D9="Y", TODAY(), "") but using the TODAY() makes the date in that cell change whenever the actual date changes.

    I was told I may have to create a macro to hard code the data after calculated.

    Re: IF - Date triggered by specific text value

    this should work,
    BUT you need to set the iterations to 1 , See calculations section, usually set to 100 - change to 1
    in E5 put
    =IF(D5="","",IF(AND(E5="",D5="Y"),NOW(),E5))
    and copy down

    I have entered Y in row 5 & 6
    and it puts todays date 27/3 in E5 & E6
    tomorrow they should stay as that date
