In column A3 I have the date the part was asked for.  In G3, I have a column for days since date was asked for.  In E3, I have date part received.  

So if E3 has a value I need G3 to say received or something like that.  If E3 is blank then I need (current date - A3 date) to go in G3  (number of days).

What would this formula look like?

Can we make that where they have to put in a date in the E3 field?  As of now they could put in gibberish and it would say received.  Thanks.

To force a date in E3, select the cell and go to Data Validation, then select Date from the Allow drop down and enter the start/end date.  Then apply my formula to get the results in G3
