I figured out how to construct a formula that would add 7 days to a date from a previous cell. I am simply using =B2+7. My problem is that the results are showing as ###### instead of a date. When I mouse over the cell there is a "pop-up" type "comment box" with the correctly calculated date in it, so I know my formula is working. But I want the date to be in the cell. I can get the date in B2 to display properly if I change the date formatting to m/d/yy but otherwise it becomes ###### too...all the tutorials for date formulas make it look like the result should just automatically appear in the cell...HELP!
OMG Thank you! Can you believe I racked my brain for hours over this and it was something as silly as that?? My first date was shown as 5/6/10 but when calculated the results had the entire year so the same size column wasn't enough! Yay!
