NETDAYS failure

12/11/18 Edited 12/09/19

I cannot figure out why this formula doesn't work for me. I've tried a date instead of TODAY(), same results. Any help appreciated. Both columns are formatted for dates.

  • Try changing the Days under Load column properties to Number/Text.

    I second Brian's suggestion. The #Date Expected error is indicating that that column type expects a date returned, not a number. Changing that to text/number column type should resolve the issue.

    I used to use this all the time. I've since written many an error into formulas, so now I only need to refer back to it occasionally. Hahalaugh

  • Thank you everyone, that worked. Super confusing. #DATE EXPECTED to me suggests the column should be formatted for date...
