[Solved] IF function with two date tests

Postby Canada » Mon Jan 20, 2020 3:14 pm

I want to have this function working, but obviously I did something wrong. Any suggestion ?


Tks in adv.


FJCC's formula did the trick. Thank you. And thanks also to all others who replied. Have a nice day.

Does this do what you want?
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
=IF(AND(E20 >= DATE(2019;11;27); E20 =< DATE(2020;4;30));Q7;0)

2019-11-27 is interpreted as 2019 minus 11 minus 27 which evaluates to 1981
The date function does what you want or the double-quoted string "2019-11-27" but not "27/11/2019" nor "11/27/2019". Only ISO dates "2019-11-27" evaluate to the right day number.

Additionally the OP has an incorrect number of parameters for the IF function. There is the comparator, followed by the True response, followed by the False response, and then an additional parameter.
Calc should've thrown an error due to the incorrect number of parameters.
