Put this code in your worksheet module.  It will pop up a warning message whenever a date is entered into column F.  Is this what you want?  See the attached workbook for an example.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Application.Intersect(Target, Columns("F:F")) Is Nothing Then
    If Target <> "" Then MsgBox "The expiration date is " & Format(Target + 5, "mm/dd/yyyy"), vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "Expiration Warning"
End If
End Sub

If you want to display on cell G4 the date entered on cell F4, on cell G4 just put =F4+5 and format this cell as Date. If you want to do a different thing, please explain better what you want because it's not so clear...

Please take a look at the attached file.
