I have a starter cell with a month/year. Is there a way other than
date(year(),month()+1,1) to get the following cell to just add one to the
month (and I need something that would continue for four years...I know that
month 13 of any year is the next year, so am figuring that might play into
this formula).

Thx.

Hi!

One way (requires the Analysis ToolPak add-in be installed):

=EOMONTH(A1,0)+1

Format to suit.

3. ## Re: additional month calculation

Assuming you DO need formulas, if the starter cell is, say, A2, you can use
the formula =DATE(2005,ROW()-1,1) and copy that down for 47 more cells. This
should be faster to recalculate since it uses only 1 date function (plus

But if you don't need formulas but just want the literal dates, type the
initial date in your starter cell. Then right-click on the fill handle in the
lower right corner of that cell, drag down for 47 cells, and when you release
the mouse button, select Fill Months.

4. ## Re: additional month calculation

If you install the Analysis Toolpak addin you can use the Edate formula
which adds months to a date eg
=Edate(A1,1)

Hope this helps

Try the EOMonth function. You'll need to load the Analysis ToolPak
It's self-explanatory, but if you get stuck you can refer to in-built
help.

thanks all for eomonth suggetions. I had found it right before looking here.
Does this mean that if my users do not have the toolpack, this function will
not appear properly?

That is correct. Without the ATP the formula will return a #NAME? error.
