    Hi,

    Do you mean how many Complete financial years there are between the dates, or how many August 1st dates there are in the range of dates?

    Hello,

    Thank you for responding to my message. I mean how many fiscal years does this range of dates touch, does not have to be the complete fiscal year. Does that make sense?

    Would it be possible to take it one step further and have the result bring back the years instead of the instances?

    Do you need years listed in a single cell, or each year in its own cell?

    Re: How to determine how many fiscal years are present from start date to end date.

    Tweaking Jason's formula..

    =YEAR(EOMONTH(A2,-7))&"-"&YEAR(EOMONTH(B2,5))-1.

    Note:
    Fiscal year 2007 begins Aug 1, 2007
    Fiscal year 2008 begins Aug 1, 2008 and so on

    Good call Ace, I think I was trying to overcomplicate the solution with, for example, "2006,2007,2008,2009" rather than "2006-2009"

    I would have made a slightly different tweak though,

    You could also get the same result without EOMONTH, i.e.

    =YEAR(A2+153)-1&"-"&YEAR(B2+153)-1

    Taking the simple solution provided by daddylonglegs in post #9,

    =YEAR(A2+153)&"-"&YEAR(B2+153)
