    Excel if then
    I have column B with a date, I have column C with a formula (I have =(B1+180) in column C) I need the text in cell c1 to be visible. How do I do this?

    If / Then
    I am using excel 2010. I am an excel beginner. I have column b formated as a date. I have column C formated with the date from column B and adding 180. The formula in column C is: =(B2+180). This works fine. However, now I need to figure out how to only disply the information in column C if column B is filled in.
    EX:
    column A Column B Column C
    (info should not be visible in Column "C" if no
    info is in "B")
    Equipment # PM Complete date PM Due Date
    010-008-003 16-Apr 10/13/2014
    010-129 16-Apr 10/13/2014
    010-159 6/28/1900
    036-136 6/28/1900
    036-137 6/28/1900

    Thank you for your quick reply, unfortunately I got an error message:
    "The formula you typed contains an error"
    I wish I could share the file or a screenshot with you.

    Sorry, my memory is failing. Try:

    =IF(ISBLANK(B2),"",B2+180)
