    Formulas with Multiple Conditions

    Hi

    This is my first post on the forum, i'm really stuck with a formula and i hate give in. We are currently using this one =IF(ISBLANK(R9),TODAY()-B9,R9-B9) to stop a clock countdown if a date is entered in R5, (B9 is the date of referral). What i would also like to do is apply an additional condition that if an *** date is added in Cell J5, for example, the clock also stops as they would not be allocated someone there is no worry of having conflicting information in cells. I have looked at array formulas but can't quite get it to do what i would like it to do.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try this xween82x:

    =IF(AND(ISBLANK(R9),ISBLANK(J5)),TODAY()-B9,R9-B9)

    This kind of works, but if there's no date in R9, but a date in J9 it comes back with a figure of -41368 rather than the amount of days.

    Any suggestions?

    Try changing the cell format to General or Number instead of Date. I've attached a sample file for reference.

    Hi

    I already had the cell format as General - i've attached the example. Basically if a date is added in R2 then the clock stops from the referral date, but equally if a date is added in the date of death the clock needs to stop as it would not need to be allocated. Hope this makes sense

    Maybe something like this...
    =IF(OR(J2<>"",R2<>""),TODAY()-B2,R2-B2)

    Re: Formulas with Multiple Conditions

    Hey Ween,
    Let me get this straight. It looks like you have three conditions
    - If the Allocated Date is empty and the DoD is empty, you want to see the numbers of days between the Date of Referral and Today?
    - If the DoD is filled in, you want to see the nr. of days between Referral Date and DoD?
    - Finally, if the Allocated Date is filled in, you want to see the nr. of days between Referral Date and Allocated Date?

    If that's so, than this should be your formula: =IF(ISBLANK(B2),"",IF(AND(ISBLANK(R2),ISBLANK(J2)),TODAY()-B2,IF(ISBLANK(R2),J2-B2,R2-B2)))
