  • 1.  Formula for Date

    Posted 13 days ago
    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out a formula that will show 2 days after the record is created.

    I have a date field [Response Needed By] and I want it to automatically populate the date for 2 days after the record was created.

    Thank you

    You can make a formula date field.

    [Response Needed By] = [Date Created] + Days(2)

    I wanted to make [Response Needed By] the field with the formula. That formula is giving me an error. Should I create another field?

    Yes, your [Response Needed By] would need to be a formula date. Can you post your code and the error message?

    Sorry, I forgot Date Created is a date/time field. Try this:

    ToDate([Date Created]) + Days(2)

    Thank you. I was using ToDay instead of ToDate.
