How to add or subtract specific years, months and days(2years4months13days) to a date in Excel?
In Excel, we usually add or subtract years, months or days separately to a date as below screenshot 1 shown, but have you tried to add/subtract years, ,months and days at once time to the date as screenshot 2 shown? In this article, I introduce formulas for handling the questions in above two cases in Excel.
To add or subtract years/months/days separately to a date, you just need to select one of formulas below:
Add one year =DATE(YEAR(Date)+1,MONTH(Date),DAY(Date))
Subtract one year =DATE(YEAR(Date)-1,MONTH(Date),DAY(Date))
Add two months =EDATE((date),2)
Subtract two months =EDATE((date),-2)
Add three days =(Date)+3
Subtract three days =(Date)-3
If you want to add specific years, months and days to a date at the same time, use this formula:
Add 1 year 2 months 3 days =DATE(YEAR(Date)+1,MONTH(Date)+2,DAY(Date)+3)
Subtract 1 year 2 months 3 days =DATE(YEAR(Date)-1,MONTH(Date)-2,DAY(Date)-3)
