Hi,

I have a sheet where I am constantly changing dates (first and last day of a month). Looking for a way to do this with one click.

Attached is an example of what I am looking for. Whatever month is in the cells, just hit increment or decrement to get the first and last dates for the next (or previous) month.

Thanks in advance,

Please try something like this.....

Sub IncrementMonth()
Range("F1").Value = WorksheetFunction.EDate(Range("F1").Value, 1)
Range("F2").Value = WorksheetFunction.EoMonth(Range("F2").Value, 1)
End Sub

Sub DecrementMonth()
Range("F1").Value = WorksheetFunction.EoMonth(Range("F1").Value, -2) + 1
Range("F2").Value = WorksheetFunction.EoMonth(Range("F2").Value, -1)
End Sub

For IncrementMonth, you can also use the following code....

Sub IncrementMonth()
Range("F1").Value = WorksheetFunction.EoMonth(Range("F1").Value, 0) + 1
Range("F2").Value = WorksheetFunction.EoMonth(Range("F2").Value, 1)
End Sub
