# Adding dates in Excel 2010

Hi, I have a series of dates in a column in MS Excel 2010. All the dates are different, and I have hundreds of dates, but I need to add 6 months + 1 day to each date and get the new date once that calculation has been done. So, as an example, lets say I have a date of 01/01/2015. I need to add 6 months to it and 1 extra day. So, mathematically, it would be (01/01/2015 + 6 months + 1 day) = New date.

The new date is what is important to me to make a determination.

Thank you,
Fulano

You'll need a helper column with a formula.

- Insert a column beside your date column (lets say its column C)
- Enter this formula in the first row of your dates (assuming the dates start in row 2)

=DATE(YEAR(D2), MONTH(D2)+6, DAY(D2)+1)

- Copy the formula down the rest of the column
- Copy that column
- Select the original date column and Paste Special > Values

A simpler solution would be the use of EDATE:

=EDATE(B4,6)+1
