**Question description:**

*This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.*

I have a schedule I'm doing with formulas to add workdays (across rows) to a start date column. I would like to write the equation like this:
=ifError((workday(b2,1) = cell above, [value of cell above + 1]
Help me form this correctly to get the (value of target cell) = (1 more than the value from the cell above) IF the target cell value started equal to the cell above.

the build point has to be the linear move out date. and it needs to pivot on to the value of the cell above. maybe like this.if=value of cell above add 1

User

only when the move out date justifies the value of the target cell

User
09/08/2017 - 02:37

not the cell above

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2017 - 02:37

it is based on value of cell above

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2017 - 02:37

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2017 - 02:38
