I have a list that takes an Open Date and adds 90 days to set a due date:

=[Open Date]+90

However, many of the Open Dates are years old. I've been asked to change it so that dates created before May 31, 2014, should default to August 31, 2014.

I asked the question in msdn forums, and (thanks Waqas) got:

=IF(([Open Date]+90)<5/31/2014,"8/31/2014",[Open Date]+90)

It looks right, but it's still not working. One of my Open Dates is 1/2/2009, and it's still coming up as 4/2/2009.

  • For the formula to refresh, you'll need to edit the item and save it – Eric Alexander Jul 16 '14 at 20:23
  • Thanks Eric, tried refreshing (changed the Open Date) but didn't change the Due Date. – Scott Gordon Jul 17 '14 at 17:49

try this formula, hope it will work.

  • Thanks Waqas, getting warmer. Now some of the pre 5/31/2014 dates are showing as 8/31/2014, and others are not. EG: Open Date 1/2/2009 is coming up as 8/31/2014, but 6/12/2009 is 9/10/2009. I see the AND operator, but thought maybe it wasn't carrying through. I looked through the list, and see that all of the opendates that changed to 8/31/2014 had a 1 as the first character in the date -- anything from January, October, November, December is now 8/31, but anything from the other months wasn't recognized. – Scott Gordon Jul 17 '14 at 14:07
