    Change code based on last day of year and change date based on code.

    I have a spreadsheet with codes and dates. I would like the date to change based on the code and the code to change if the date is > the last day of each year. I have attached a practice file.

    I when back and reattached the file. Sorry it did not work the first time. I've tried Vlookup formula but I would have to change each year.

    So it looks like the
    date = VLOOKUP(code)
    Is fine, no problem? Anyway the cells beneath (A3:A5 etc) don't make much sense to me.

    Probably... I don't understand the logic fully, but I'm guessing you want something like,

    code = "VA-"&RIGHT(YEAR(TODAY()),2)

    That will return the text string "VA-" with the two-year date for now attached. You can bury that in an IF conditional if you want, something like,

    code = "VA-"&IF(date_check > date_ref, Right(Year(Today()) - 1, 2), Right(Year(Today()),2)

    Anyway, that's the direction I'd go if I was the King of Space.

    Thanks, I guess I did not explain my problem well enough. I tried your suggestion but could not get it to do what I wanted it to do. Sorry I for the waste of time. Thanks again.
