I have column A and Column B.  Both have dates.  If column A is bigger than column B, I can have column C indicate so by =if(A:1>B:1,1,0).  How do I get 1's and 0's dispersed through column C if Column A is 180 days older than Column B?  So, same theory as greather than less than, but with dates.  Thanks

Lets say you simply want to compare dates you can this assuming your value is in A1 and B1
=IF(AND(B1>180,A1>B1),1,0)

Dates are really just numbers behind the scenes, so same logic applies:

=IF((A2-B2)>=180,1,0)
