There is a purchase date column in a Excel. Is it possible to write a formula such that is the purchase date - today is more than 3 years. A message "out of warranty" will be displayed.

Assuming - A column is date of purchase.
=IF(AND(A2<TODAY()-1095,A2<>""),"Out Of Warranty","")

Open in new window

this more refine if there is either column  A is blank or date is in warranty period returns to blank. else Out Of warranty

if you want to returns result if date is in warranty with In Warranty Period then use this
=IF(A2<>"",IF(A2<TODAY()-1095,"Out Of Warranty",""),"")

Open in new window

Just FYI, you can also use DATEDIF:

=IF(DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"Y")>=3,"Out Of Warranty","In Warranty")

It might be safer to use 1096 to take account of possible leap years
or use Rory Archibald's formula.
