Date Formula


I have two quick questions;

I need a formular to express the following:

End date of column A = Start date for column B

( I tried setting the columns equal to each other but get an error)

Second formula Column C = Column B +10

( I tried Date1 +10 but get an error)

    Can you elaborate on what type of error you're getting? Is it the "Invalid Column Value" one or the "#ERROR" one?

    First make sure all columns have Column Type as Date.

    When you say end date of Column A equal to start date of Column B -- what do you mean by this? If you are saying you just want the date value in Column B to be the same as Column A then just use the formula in Column B as =[Column A]@row

    For Column C, once you address the column type mentioned above in line one you should not get the error. If the assumption for Column B is good, then you can as well have the Column C formula as =[Column A]@row + 10
