formula for aquiring a gestational age
Yes.
You can work with dates the same way you work with numbers. (Just make sure the cell is formatted as a date.) ie. If A2 has the Due Date, you can put =A2280 in B2 to get the other date.

Answer: formula for aquiring a gestational age
Hi hannatrip,
Yes, it is definitely possible to retrieve a gestational age for pregnancy using Excel. As Scott mentioned, you can work with dates just like you work with numbers in Excel. Here are the steps to create a formula to retrieve the gestational age:
The result will be the number of days between the due date and today's date, minus 280. You can then format the cell to display the result in weeks or months, if you prefer.

formula for aquiring a gestational age
here's one way.
in a2: 6/10/06 in b2: =a2+280 in c2: =TRUNC((TODAY()A2)/7)& " weeks " & MOD(TODAY()A2,7) & " days" the results should show: b2 = 3/17/2007 c2=30 weeks 6 days  Gary "hannatrip" wrote in message ... I tried what you showed me and it worked but how do i get the weeks up to todays date though? "Scott" wrote: Yes. You can work with dates the same way you work with numbers.
