I'm not able to calculate the date (accurately) I should run out of an item using the formula:

<style type="text/css">p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Lucida Grande'; color: #000000}span.s1 {color: #003ecc}span.s2 {color: #005109}</style>
Code:
=TODAY()+N2[COLOR=#222222][FONT=Verdana]

[/FONT][/COLOR]
where the values in column N represent the number of days I have left for an item. I've been fumbling along with other date-related functions, but nothing works. What am I not seeing?

We cannot see your worksheet... show us some examples of numbers in Column N and the inaccurate dates being calculated from them.

Thanks, Rick, I was going to create a side-by-side comparison of how I thought the formula was failed, and then lo and behold, =TODAY()+N2 started calculating things properly. I can't explain it. But I do thank you for taking the moment to follow up on my question.
