I need a formula that will allow me to calc before a certain date and after a certain date. =if(A2<=DATE(2015,8,27),(F2*1.14),(F2*1.15)) It just multiplies column F with 1.15. I'm assuming I need to bring in the date column into the equation?

I need assistance setting up a time sheet formula where I can create a column of contiguous dates down the left hand side of the spread sheet.
