    Formula to lookup data with IF function

    Hi,
    I am trying to populate a date in column C by doing a lookup of column B and do a simple formula (column B's date - 3 working days) [example: column B's date is 6/1, so result should be 5/27), but if column A has a date, it will take column A date.

    However, somehow my formula is not working right.

    Need expertise advise what is wrong with the formula.

    Thanks!

    Try this:

    =IF(A2<>"",A2,WORKDAY.INTL(B2,-3))

    Thanks, Aligw! It works perfectly now.

    One more question:
    If column A and B has no date, I want the formula to return with a blank.

    I tried this formula but it does not work. Any advise?

    =IF(IFNA(N90<>"",N90,WORKDAY.INTL(O90,-3)))

    Thanks again.
