# Excel formula to return next month when i select current month

Hi, am looking for a simple excel formula to reflect next month when i select any month. For example, if i select Feb in cell A1, in cell B1 should give the result as Mar. Can someone help please.

Hi Edward, thanks for the quick reply. Please note, am getting an #value issue. I have changed the format to "mmm". And please note, i use Jan- Dec in cell A1 rather than Jan 1 or Feb 1, thanks

If you just have the month it will give you a #VALUE error. That's why I said you need an actual date. I am pretty sure another expert will chime in with a better solution. If the date is as I posted it will work otherwise you will get the error.

just create a dummy table in your spreadsheet (other sheet, or "off the border") first colum say AA has Jan-DEC, column AB has FEB-JAN

then do a vlookup in your B column:

cell b2 : =vlookup(a2;aa1:bb12;2;0) will give you the desired result

then do a vlookup in your B column:

cell b2 : =vlookup(a2;aa1:bb12;2;0) will give you the desired result

if A1 has the date such as Jan 1 then B1 will have Feb 1

I meant to say put the formula in B1
