    Question Calculate a date depending on a number of months

    Just a general question.

    If I have a specific date in a cell, how can I calculate a date X number of months from that original date?

    For example if I have 10/12/2018 in one cell, and 48 (months) in another cell, what formula would I have to use to calculate the exact date (taking into account the different number of days in each month) that is 48 months from 10/12/2018.

    Thank you!

    Use the EDATE function. Date in A1 and number of months in B1:
