Hi All,

I have a cell with today's date in, 24/03/2009. In an adjacent cell, I want a function to add 6 weeks to this date and display it in the same format.

What function should I use? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

Assuming your date in A1 then formula in B1 would be:

=A1+6*7

and use the format painter to format B1 exactly the same as A1

=A1+42
