# Excel Formula Question

Posted on 2014-11-15

For the attached spreadsheet, I am trying to generate the word "Call" in the last column, but only for customers that only visited "One-time" and their last visit was more than 30 days ago, and that the area code of their phone number is (239). I can figure it all out, except for how to include the area code criteria.

Thanks!

Rather than create a special formula to determine who to call, why not use an AutoFilter on three columns:
Column B -- use a "begins with" text filter and specify (239) in the resulting dialog
Column G -- use a "greater than" filter and specify 30 in the resulting dialog
Column H -- uncheck the box for "Select all" then check the box for "One-time"

To create an AutoFilter:
2. On the Data menu, click the Filter icon

To clear the AutoFilter (and thereby display all your data):
1. On the Data menu, click the Filter icon

In the attached workbook, I put the following formula in cell G3 and copied it down:
=IF(D3="","",TODAY()-D3)

Thank you, Kris.

And thank you, too, Bundt for the suggestion, which I may use in the future. In this instance, however, I just needed a formula.

Have a great rest of the weekend to you both!
