# updating date formulas

#### MissAJ

##### Board Regular
I am a teacher using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

What's the most efficient way for me to make (and then yearly edit) an IF formula that works in a semi-quarterly grade report to insert the right beginning and ending dates for the report depending on what the present date is? I put a =NOW() formula in A1 to refer to. These are the formulas I used last year.

=IF(A\$1<38624,"From August 29, 2005",(IF(A\$1<38694,"From October 31, 2005",(IF(A\$1<38764,"From January 16, 2006",(IF(A\$1<38828,"From March 20, 2006","")))))))

=IF(A\$1<38624,"To September 23, 2005",(IF(A\$1<38694,"To December 2, 2005",(IF(A\$1<38764,"To February 10, 2006",(IF(A\$1<38828,"To April 14, 2006",\$B\$248)))))))

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.
Thank you for your help. Do you mean that the yellow area is the look up table and that the formulas in A5 and B5 should be put in my grade reports?

Thats right you could have the lookup formulas in a single cell if you wanted rather than the two I've used.

Thanks very much! It works well!

Good I'm glad - post back if you need anything else
