    Cool DATEDIF Assume Today If Blank

    Hi Everyone,

    I am hoping someone may be able to help me with a DATEIF formula that I am trying to incorporate a "If Blank, Assume Today" into.

    In the following example, if A2 is blank I would like Excel to assume today's date:

    =DATEDIF(A1,A2,"Y") & "y, " & DATEDIF(A1,A2,"YM") & "m "

    Thanks in advance!

    Try replacing A2 with If(A2=0,Today(),0) inside the formula

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    Try this:

    =DATEDIF(A1,IF(A2="",TODAY(),A2),"Y") & "y, " & DATEDIF(A1,IF(A2="",TODAY(),A2),"YM") & "m "
