 # using running dates in Excell to convert to text

Good day. I have the following Excel tables that with formulas must convert to number and text.

The cycle is yearly. Thus said, person starts on a specific date. He / She is then shown as a 1st year. One year later that person on his anniversary date is shown as a 2nd year and so forth.

is there someone that can help with the formula.

That could be this not very elegant (but working) formula:

``=IFS(TODAY()>=DATE(YEAR(A2)+2,MONTH(A2),DAY(A2)),"3rd",TODAY()>=DATE(YEAR(A2)+1,MONTH(A2),DAY(A2)),"2nd",NOT(TODAY()>=DATE(YEAR(A2)+1,MONTH(A2),DAY(A2))),"1st")``

There are probably neater ways to achieve the same, but this all I could think of right now. Attached your workbook with the formula in it. See if this what you had in mind.

I'd simplify to

``=IFS(TODAY()>=EDATE(A2,24),"3rd",TODAY()>=EDATE(A2,12),"2nd",TRUE,"1st")``

@Sergei Baklan Indeed! And more elegant.
