Yield year if criteria is between two dates in two columns.



I am trying to yield the Year if Start date is greater than or equal to 1/1/2023 but pre-marketing date is less than or equal to 12/31/2023.

I was fine with a simple year in a single column but am stumped with yielding year between two dates in two columns.

    You can nest an IF function inside of the YEAR function to choose which date to output.

    =IF([Pre-Marketing Date]@row <> "", [Pre-Marketing Date]@row, [Start Date]@row)

    Now that we have the IF outputting the date we want to use, we wrap the whole thing in a YEAR function.

    =YEAR(IF([Pre-Marketing Date]@row <> "", [Pre-Marketing Date]@row, [Start Date]@row))
