    How to check whether a date is a month after the previous date

    Hi all,

    Can anyone help me with the below question?

    I’m sent a file every day where column A contains a month & year but in ‘general’ format.

    For example;

    Column A, starting with cell A1 with the next date in A2, etc
    Jan15
    Feb15
    Mar15
    Apr15

    Is there a way through a formula or macro that I can use in order to run through all the dates in this column to make sure that the next cell down is always the month after the cell above it? The dates go all the way through to 2018 in the above format.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You can use conditional formatting like =MONTH(A1)>MONTH(A2)

    In B1
    IF(DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),1)=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,1),"GOOD","ERROR")

    Change the text "GOOD" and "ERROR" to whatever you want it to be.

    Copy formula down
