Add formula to column without changing last modified date

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

I would like to calculate the number of days an item has aged.  We don't currently use a "closed" date field, but rely on last modified.


=IF(Responsible1 = "Closed", NETDAYS(Created1, Modified1), NETDAYS(Created1, TODAY()))


Is there any way to add a formula to a column without triggering the last modified system field to update?  This formula is pretty cool except when I add it, all of the last modified dates change to now, which defeats the purpose of the formula.
