# How do you calculate a date based on text in another cell?

I need to Smartsheet to use the name of a company in another cell to determine which formula to use to calculate a date in another cell.

I am trying to calculate the conversion date of a temp, and based on which agency we are using the fee structure is different. Some may convert at 120 days and others at 180 days.

If Agency 1, then conversion date =start date cell +120 days

If Agency 2, then conversion date =start date cell +180 days

Something like the below should work for you

=IF(Agency@row="Agency 1", [Start Date]@row +120,IF(Agency@row="Agency 2", [Start Date]@row +180))
