Is there a way though the custom number format (or perhaps a different way) that I could type the a single date into a cell (7/31/10, for example), and it would appear in the cell as "07/31/10 - 08/01/10"?

I started with using the custom number format mm/dd/yyyy" - ", but wasn't sure if I could request that the number the space is the original mm/dd/yyyy +1.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your time!

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.
