Hello,

I am using a formula to calculate the end of a payperiod for semi-monthly payroll dates EX: 01/01/20 to 01/15/20 Paid on 01/25/20 and 01/16/20 to 01/31/20 paid on 02/10/20. I use a calculateion that gives me the end dates of a payperiod but I need one that will give me both the start dates and the end dates.

This is a formula I got off of Mr. Excel: =IF(DAY(M1)<15,DATE(YEAR(M1),MONTH(M1),1),DATE(YEAR(M1),MONTH(M1)+1,0))
This is great for calculating the end date but I need to calculate the start date also and sometimes I need to calculate both start and and dates. Can someone help? I am awful with date formulas.

Thanks in advance,

Huzz

Hi Dave,

Thank you for the super quick response. I think what I need is columns B & C to give me the start and end of the payperiods. for example if I enter a date 5/5/20 I need the result to tell me start 5/1/20 and end 5/15/20. If I enter the date 5/27/20 I need it to Start 5/16/20 and end 5/30/20. The first one you sent B2 seems to work but the second one give me a result of 15 no matter what date I use. I really really appreciate your help!

Ensure that you enter actual dates in Column A.
The XL2BB is converting Column A to text.
Coerce the text to dates or delete the text, change the format to general, and re-enter the dates.
Copy or fill the formulas down.
