# Thread: increment date by a whole year

1. Evening All,

on behalf of Jack in the UK :

what's the formula for incrementing a cell with a date in it by a whole year (taking into account leap years)

so : 31/07/2002 plus a year would always be 31/07/2003

scource cell is formatted as a date dd/mm/yyyy - I can't just add 365 as this will trip up on leap years

thanks
Jack in the UK

2. Cheers Chris im home now, sunny South London,

Also would add needs to be able to edit to say any add 1 4 7 years on to the date the leap is causing me headaces..
Cheers again Chris/

3. =EDATE(TODAY(),12)
=EDATE(TODAY(),48)
=EDATE(TODAY(),84)

Note: EDATE is supplied by the Analysis ToolPak add-in.

4. Hi,

Use the DATE function. With A1as reference cell:

=DATE(YEAR(A1)+1,MONTH(A1),DAY(A1))

This will handle leap years correctly.

Bye,
Jay

6. As I'm sure XL does, use the technically correct number of days in any given year:

365.2422

Excel supports the Gregorian calendar which expresses years in terms of whole days...

Main Entry: Gregorian calendar
Function: noun
Date: circa 1771
: a calendar in general use introduced in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII as a revision of the Julian calendar, adopted in Great Britain and the American colonies in 1752, marked by the suppression of 10 days or after 1700 11 days, and having leap years in every year divisible by four with the restriction that centesimal years are leap years only when divisible by 400

8. And the Vikings:

 English Days Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Old Norse Days Sunnudagr Mánadagr Tısdagr Óğinsdagr Şórsdagr Frjádagr laugardagr * Rough Translation Sunna's day Manni's day Tyr's day Odin's day Thor's day Frigga's day Satyr's day *

In any case, my formula does not work Best to stick with Jay's function.
