    Cool Date formula problem

    I have a spreadsheet I am working on and cant get the date formula right. I have looked everywhere but cant find the answer to my problem. I know it is probably simple but cant seen to come up with it. Example of problem. My first date I want to plug in is say May 15, 2013. I need to formulate 3 other cells so the dates appear as 1 year less from original date and 3 months later than original date and the day stays the same, next cell 1 year less and 6 months later day stays the same, next cell 1 year less 9 months later and day stays the same. Someone please help me. I have a big project coming up and I need to impress the boss with this spreadsheet.

    Re: Date formula problem

    If your first date is in A1 you can use this formula to get the date from a year earlier:

    =DATE(YEAR(A1)-1,MONTH(A1),DAY(A1))

    To get a date 3 months later than this you would use this:

    =DATE(YEAR(A1)-1,MONTH(A1)+3,DAY(A1))

    so can you see how to apply this to get your other required dates?

    Hope this helps.

    Pete
