This will do it for you ...

Assuming that

1. today's date is in Cell A1 and
2. the birthday is in Cell B1

=IF(AND(A1>=B1,A1-B1<=10),\"BIRTHDAY\",\"\")

NOTE: Cells A1 and B1 must be both "date" formatted.

BenjieLop thanks a lot. But if I have
a1 - today
b1 -7/1/1988

Now I have problem. Your formula is working for dates in the same year.
I guess I should convert B1 from 7/1/1988 to 7/1/2005 to make your
formula working. how to do this?
Thanks Krzys

The formula that I gave you works fine with me even if the years are
not the same.

Other than that, I do not really know what else to say.

```There may be a more elegant solution but, in the meantime, you can try
this.

In Cell C1, enter this formula

=TEXT(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1),DAY(A1)),\"MM/DD\")

where A1 contains today's date.

Similarly, in Cell D1, enter this formula

=TEXT(DATE(YEAR(B1),MONTH(B1),DAY(B1)),\"MM/DD\")

where B1 contains the birthday.

NOTE: Cells C1 and D1 are helper columns so you can hide these

In Cell E1, enter the formula

=IF(AND(C1>=D1,C1-D1<=10),\"BIRTHDAY\",\"\")

Like I said, there may be a more elegant/efficient solution, but this
will work in the meantime.

Regards.

Bob,

Please note that the OP's condition is that there is a "Birthday"
message if the birthday is *10 days before * a certain date

Overall, your formula is indeed less cumbersome and more efficient.
However, there are two situations where it will not work:

1.  *A1=July 2  &  B1=June 30 *

The months are different yet the birthday in Cell B1 is still within 10
days of the date in Cell A1.

2.  *A1=July 2  &  B1=July 3*

Date in Cell B1, although is within 10 days of the date in Cell A1, is
already after the date in Cell A1.

... just thought I'd let you know.

Regards.
