    Formulas and Dates

    The column below shows enrollment dates. Unfortunately, I dont have ACTUAL dates. These only count how many days from TODAY the enrollment was done. Is it possible to create a formula that will actually give me a DATE? I need to calculate the one closest to TODAY.

    I guess in English it would be something like: TODAY MINUS 1 HOUR = TODAY'S DATE...... or

    TODAY MINUS 38 DAYS = APRIL 19, 2013


    Age

    1 Hour
    2 Hours
    38 Days
    2 Hours
    4 Hours
    29 Days
    29 Days
    34 Days
    42 Days
    48 Days
    49 Days
    56 Days
    59 Days
    73 Days
    77 Days
    78 Days
    30 Days
    < 1 Hour

    Try this formula:

    =IF(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"Hour","")=A1,TODAY()-SUBSTITUTE(A1," Days",""),"less than 1 day")

    Re: Formulas and Dates

    most of them worked.. but the ones that had 1 Hour came out as "less than 1 day" instead of today's date. There was also another one that said 1 Day and that one came out #VALUE!.

    I do have one more that says < 1 Hour = How do I get a date for that one?

    By the way, thank you so much for all your help

    This will work better:

    =IF(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"Hour","")=A1,TODAY()-LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)),TODAY())

    Re: Formulas and Dates

    You are AWESOME!!. That worked perfectly.. Now, the second part of this report is to look for the previous date out of that list.. This is what my formula looks like: See attached on L2.. It should be 4/25/2013 but my formula is coming up with 5/17/2013. I need to count the previous to last date out of the Active Clients only. And then in another formula, i need to count how many of those dates there are (which in this case, there would be 2)

    I also need to count how many of the Active Clients only are 5/23/2013. This will go in another report.
