I am very new to Excel. I want to put a date in one cell and have it update the date in another cell for 72 days later.
also does anyone have a suggestion on a book for common questions.

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

Put the current date in cell A1. In cell B1 put the formula =A1 +72. That should add 72 days to the date in A1. Make sure it is formatted as a date if it doesn't work the first time.
