Datedif and If statement in Excel

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I want to create an Excel formula that allows me to calculate the datedif of the month (i.e. Date of Expiry – Today’s Date). Which I have done as seen below:

enter image description here

This is my formula:

=IFERROR(DATEDIF($F$1,C4,"m") & " Months", "Already Expired")

However, I want a formula that can take note of the (s) in Months if the months left is only 1 Month.
(I.e. I do not want the s behind the Months if the “m” in datedif is just 1 month difference.)
How do I achieve that?

How to&Answers:

I would write the unit into the cell format, not the formula. The formula should produce an integer and the cell format should be Custom [=1]0 "month";0 "months".

To test, format a cell as described above and enter any number. The cell will display the number and the word “moth” or “months”, depending upon the value you entered.
