    Update all dates to the year that is entered in a cell

    I keep up with payments made each month using a basic Excel sheet. The rows B4:B15 are labeled 1/1/2020, 2/1/2020, ... 12/1/2020.

    I would like to have it so all the dates from B4:B15 automatically update and change their current year to whatever year I have entered in cell V1, so I don't have to go to each cell and change it manually. I know it's not a big deal for just 12 cells, but I actually have this duplicated many times over, and well, I'm sure Excel can handle this automation. I'm trying different formulas, but not having much luck. Few things I keep trying keeps giving me the dreaded date of 1/1/1905. I have a feeling I'm making this more complicated than it probably is.

    Any suggestions?

    Try this in B4:

    =DATE($V$1,ROWS($B$4:B4),1)

    Thanks, but that formula fills horizontally, and I need it to fill vertically for the column B4:B15. Also, every cell it filled in has the #NUM! error

    Change to:

    =DATE(YEAR($V$1),ROWS($B$4:B4),1)
