I have an assignment where I have to create a birthday list. One of the tasks is to add a countdown til someone's birthday, I have the formula as:
However how do I calculate it so if some's birthday past I can recalculate it so it is not negative.

Like if someone's birthday past it will say -105 days, where I want to add 365 to any negative amounts.

  • Excel -

    You probably will need to write an IF statement.

  • Excel -

    That is, IF the answer is negative, add 365; otherwise, calculate regularly.

  • Excel -

    Yeah but I can't figure out how to do that, how do I do an IF function within the calculation?

  • Excel -

    Go to the help part of Excel and type in if statement. It will give you instructions.
