I want to be able to add months or years to a date.  

For example 25/4/05 + 9 months
25/4/05 + 15 years.

I am using Excel 2000.

One of the issues in adding years or months (as opposed to days or weeks) is
that all months and all years do not have the same number of days.

So you are always dealing with the issue of 31 Jan + 1 month = ???

One convention is to not allow a rollover to the subsequent month -- so the
answer to the above would be 28 Feb or 29 Feb; but not 3 Mar.

If that is what you want, then the EDATE function would work.


and just equate a year to 12 months.

If the EDATE function is not available, and returns the #NAME? error, install
and load the Analysis ToolPak add-in.

On the Tools menu, click Add-Ins. 
In the Add-Ins available list, select the Analysis ToolPak box, and then click
If necessary, follow the instructions in the setup program. 

If you don't want to add the ATP, you can mimic it in a complex worksheet
function.  Post back if that is what you would prefer.

Excel properties
Hi, I'm having a problem running a Word macro which mailmerges data from an excel file I get sent regularly. This only started happening recently. I noticed that my macro runs fine if I open the Excel document then 'save as' the same name. Looking at the properties within Excel I see the original has nothing under the general tab and the archive box is unticked. The resaved document has all the 'type', 'location', 'size' etc data as you would expect, plus the archive box is ticked. Anyone know what's going on here then? Cheers, Shedlord ...

Hi Tillie, Without seeing the actual macro code (assuming that you issue is controlled by code and not by worksheet protection) then I don't think it is possible to answer your question. You probably should talk to whoever set up the worksheet. "access the macro trust level" only allows you to decide wheth...
