Folks,
I have a formula B6/F6 that tells me how many months I have left on a load.
What I would like to do is calculate when the ending month and year would be
based upon the number of months left from 1/01/2014

use the formula
=edate("1/01/2014",B6)

Edate is the function taking start date and the no of months to add or subtract

use -B6 (negative value) to substract months

If you just need month use the month() function and similarly year() function for year

eg. =month(edate("1/01/2014",B6))
