I'm sure this has been answered as I've read similar post on this forum but none matched what I am doing exactly and I need to get this fixed quickly. I apologize if this is a repeat, but I have a simple formula on a cell that when the value of the cell is not longer empty, or an employee started to type characters in the cell, it puts today's date in the next cell on the same sheet. Kind of like auto populating a start date for the employee. The formula is working perfectly but the issue is I do not want the employee to have to do anything to the date manually and I do not want the date to change when the document opened in a few days. Currently when the document is opened again the next day the start dates all change to the next day's date. Is there a way in the formula to mark the value and static once generated or a better way to auto record a date in a field that will not change when reopened? Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.
