Hello.

I need to calculate the age of a work order using the start date (a2) and end date (b2). The “open” work orders will have a blank end date.

I want to write a formula that will use today’s date as the end date if the end date cell is blank. I’m assuming I use an IF statement, but not sure how to write it.

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
