I need to update the following formula to return the value it finds in 3/14/01 date format. Right now, its returning the hard number, 41492...

Notice that I am trying to add some text in the same cell.

=IF(Y10="","",WORKDAY(I10,-10-ROUND(Y10/IF(Y10<=1500,175,300),0)))&" (A)"

Try this:

=IF(Y10="","",TEXT(WORKDAY(I10,-10-ROUND(Y10/IF(Y10<=1500,175,300),0))),"mm/dd/yy")&" (A)"

Change the section "mm/dd/yy" to format as required.

Thanks

I was just checking the brackets on my version that I just copied from the question as I may have got them wrong and I have also spotted something else.

Where Y10 is blank you will end up with the " (A)" section. Do you actually want this or should blank in Y10 result in blank result?

If so, with corrected brackets:

=IF(Y10="","",TEXT(WORKDAY(I10,-10-ROUND(Y10/IF(Y10<=1500,175,300),0)),"mm/dd/yy")&" (A)")

Thanks
