I have a formula that is providing me with a date. I'd like to be able to take that date and have it convert to the next entry point being either 1/1 or 7/1. So, 1/18/11 would turn into 7/1/11 and 8/15/11 would turn into 1/1/12. Any ideas?

Try this formula:

=DATE(YEAR(A1),(INT((MONTH(A1)-1)/6)+1)*6+1,1)

That is just too easy although I'll have to wait for fresh eyes to figure out what it's doing. LOL I'm feeling really technically challenged right now.
