hi there;

i'm in need of a formula or maybe a macro;

the thing is that I have a column including dates like;

13.Sept
15.Sept
13.Sept
22.Sept
01.Sept
24.Sept
25.Sept
19.Sept
26.Sept

what I need it;

I want excel to revise these dates to;

"date specified in the cell + 2  - Sept"

i.e

13.Sept - should be read as 13/15 Sept
15.Sept - 15/17 Sept
13.Sept - 13/15 Sept

Any so on

Would that be possible please?

appreciate to hearing from your side

Try this assuming G1 is the starting cell:

=LEFT(G1,2) &"/"& LEFT(G1,2)+2 & " " &MID(G1,4,LEN(G1))

Hello,

if the cell contains a real date, then you can use

=DAY(A1)&"/"&TEXT(A1+2,"dd mmm")

cheers, teylyn
