Hi, ALESSANDRO, the formula provided above works in English version, if you are in Italian version, try this formula =MESE(FINE.MESE(A2;(GIORNO(A2)>15)+0))

Hoe kun je bovenstaande doen maar dan als resultaat de hele datum zien?
Ik zou graag alle datums muv de 1e van de maand, af willen ronden naar de 1e van de volgende maand.

Voorbeeld:
01-05-2020 blijft 01-05-2020
02-05-2020 wordt 01-06-2020

Alvast super bedankt.

Hi, Reinout, try this formula =IF(DAY(A1)<>1, DATE( IF(MONTH(A1)=12, YEAR(A1)+1, YEAR(A1)), IF( MONTH(A1) = 12, 1, MONTH(A1)+1),1),CELL("contents",A1)), A1 is the date that you want to change.
