Excel how to calculate a date with different criteria

Can someone assist with another query please.

I have start date and i want to add a deadline date for it looking at text as a driver for the date.  As follows:

A3 is the start date and in B3 i want to put a due date - this needs to look at text in another column so it the column says Major overdue or Major Project it needs to have a deadline of 25 days from the start date and if the texts says Delay overdue or delay project i need the deadline date to be 25 days from the start date.  Hope this makes sense and thanks for any assistance

Hi,

I suggest using this formula:

`=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("major",C3)),A3+30,IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("delay",C3)),A3+25,""))`

If you want the 30 or 25 days to be only working days (excluding the weekends), please check out this formula:

`=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("major",C3)),WORKDAY(A3,30),IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("delay",C3)),WORKDAY(A3,25),"")) `

Hope that helps
