Hi

Using the Gregorian calendar, that formula need to be modified to take account of centennial years not being evenly divisible by 400 (eg 2000 is a leap year, but 1900 is not):

I'm sure there is a slicker way of writing this, but this should be fully functional.

Try this where A1 holds the year.

=IF(DAY(DATE(A1,2,29))=1,"Not a leap year", "Yep, it's a leaping!!")
