Hi experts,

I'm using Excel 2013.

Today’s date is 9/29/2016

In excel the following formula gives me the month part of today’s date. So it gives me 9.
=MONTH(TODAY())

In excel the following formula gives me the year part of today’s date. So it gives me 2016
=YEAR(TODAY())

In excel the syntax for an if statement is like this

=IF(statement,ifstatementistruedothis,ifstatementisfalsedothis)


I'm working on an if statement.
This is the logic for the if statement I need.

If the month part of today’s date equals 1,2,3,4,5,6
           then set the year to 2016
Else  If the month part of today’s date equals 7,8,9,10,11,12
          then set the year to 2017

So far this is what I have. In the part where i put xxx that's the part I need help with.

=IF(xxx=xxx,2016,2017)

Anyone the syntax for the if statement mentioned above?

You'll just replace the xxx=xxx portion with another logic test, like so:
=If (MONTH (TODAY ())<=6,2016,2017)

For future compatibility:

=IF(MONTH(TODAY())<=6,YEAR(TODAY()),YEAR(TODAY())+1)

Try this.

=YEAR(TODAY())+(MONTH(TODAY()>6)
