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)))))))

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

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.
