    Hi @Brittany Marie

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Do you mean it should change to the text "30 days" or add 30 days to a date?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Thanks for getting back to me, so I want to create 30 days to date

    Right now I have a date in the Renewal End Date column that will populate a date that is 45 days before the contract end date.

    =[Contract End Date]@row - 45

    So, I need help adding to this formula that says if the Contract End Date column is blank change the date to 30 days out from the Contract Start Date . But, had some issues whether I should use Ifs or if blank function
