I need a hero. I have a spreadsheet spread over a few years and am looking for a formula to help with the following. We have what is called a "bid season" that is from October through May. I am trying to have a value returned in column F to combine years if a date in column C is between Oct-May and if not between those months (June-Sept) to be blank . Example if the date =10/6/2018 or 4/9/2019 that the value returned would be 2018-2019 and so on for 1,100+ rows spanning from 2017 to present. See example data below. Let me know if I need to clarify anything please.

See if the following works for you:

=IF(MONTH(EDATE(C2,-9))<9,YEAR(EDATE(C2,-9))&"-"&YEAR(EDATE(C2,3)),"")
