Simple timesheet update question

Hi guys, every fortnight I need to complete a timesheet, which is always the same - Monday - Friday, same number of hours. The only thing that alters every two weeks is the dates.

Is there a way to automatically increase each previous date by 14 days? I've played around a bit but can't seem to get a formula to do this seemingly simple task. I'd be grateful if someone could steer me in the right direction.

TIA

If you are using true Dates in your timesheet, just adding 14 to the cell value will change it as you are requesting.
I would suggest having all dates in your timesheet referencing one key cell. Then you can change that cell and all the others will follow.
If cell A1 is the key date cell, others can reference it like:
Code:
=A1 + 1
When A1 is changed, the cell with the above code will change by one day.

Tip from setting up time cards for my company...

Under TOOLS>OPTIONS>CALCULATION>
You may want to select "Use 1904 Date system"
Excel help should explain the difference.

Can you elaborate more on how the 1904 Date system helps in setting up time cards, I'm curious?
