See how the EDATE function calculates a number of months before or after a specific date, whereas the EOMONTH function is used to calculate an end-of-month date.
- [Instructor] Excel has a number of built-in functions…related to date and time needs.…And in the Excel menu system,…if you click on the Formulas tab in the ribbon,…you will see a category called Date & Time.…Quite a few entries here.…Slide over a choice, you'll get a brief description of it.…We're going to focus in this movie on two of them,…edate, and eomonth.…Eomonth by the way means end of month.…In column A we've got some starting dates,…and maybe these represent the day…that a person started to work.…We want to know when the third anniversary,…perhaps meaning months means, three months later.…
We can certainly in many cases, type this in,…but of course the form is going to make this a lot faster.…Equal edate,…here's the start date, or the day in question,…comma, three months from that day, enter,…and we see the result there.…So I'm going to copy this down in the column by double clicking…in the lower right-hand corner,…and there we see the other entries as well too.…Now you might be wondering, what if that were August 31st?…
