Lead time Formula




I'm trying to figure out a formula or a way to make 2 cells work together and have the results in a third one. Here is the situation. this sheet is for procurement of items and their lead time to order. Example: in one cell we would put the date we would like the item to arrive onsite and in another cell we would put how many weeks is it's lead time. We need the third cell to tell us the date it would need to be ordered by condidering the lead time. Is this doable?

    Something like this might work:


    =[Desired Arrival Date]23 - [Shipment Lead Time (in weeks)]23 * 7


    for the two columns as named in the [] brackets and row 23


    The Date column where this formula resides can not be used in the Project Settings (start / end dates) as those columns will not accept formulas.


    The "7" in the formula is converting the lead time in weeks to lead time in days.


    Hope this makes sense.
