# IF(OR) Statement

Hi,

I have an IF(OR) below

The formula result is "No" but the date serials match, so B17 is today()

Its checking date stamps dropped into the other spreadsheets by VB using =now()

Cutting the dates using left returns 41864 for all the cells in the IF and today()

Why am getting "No" returned?

Thanks

=IF(OR(LEFT('[NA.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1,5)=B17,LEFT('[Europe.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1,5)=B17,(LEFT('[MENA.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1,5)=B17),(LEFT('[Asia.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1,5)=B17),(LEFT('[LATAM.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1,5)=B17)),"Yes","No")

Hi,

If you want to compare Today() and Now() you have to INT(Now()) = Today()

=IF(OR(INT('[NA.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1)=B17,INT('[Europe.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1)=B17,INT('[MENA.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1)=B17,INT('[Asia.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1)=B17,INT('[LATAM.xlsm]PB Review'!\$H\$1)=B17),"Yes","No")
