Formulae: Adding Time to Dates?
  •     Valentina June 18, 2014 3:49AM
    Hi,

    I have a Date column and a column showing the number of days ahead. Eventually I would like to get the Date ahead i.e. if the Date today is 10/06/2014 then in two days it will be 12/06/2014. Please see the example below.

    [Date]           [ DaystoAdd]       [Date ahead]
    10/06/2014           2               12/06/2014
    04/06/2014           5               09/06/2014
    30/05/2014           6               05/06/2014

    Any ideas how to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance‚Äč

    DATEADD(date, number, unit)

    Use this function, replace the number bit with the column for days ahead and put "day" for unit.

    Thanks!
    You could also create a dynamic formula, that calculates date which is n number of days from today:

    DATEADD(TODAY(), [DaysToAdd])

    DATEADD formula will assume "day" unit as default, so in this case you could skip that part of syntax.
