How to Add Days to a Date

Whether you’re calculating a project’s deadline, counting the days until a special event, or managing scheduling tasks, knowing how to add days to a date is a valuable skill. You can use a few different methods to calculate what the date will be after adding several days.

Method One: Add Days Manually

The first way to add days is to add them manually. You can start by adding the days to the day portion of the starting date. If the sum of these days is less than the number of days in the month, then that’s the result.

If the sum of the days is greater than the number of days in the month, then you’ll need to use a calendar. Locate the starting date on the calendar, then move forward one day for each of the number of days you want to add.

When you reach the end of a month, move forward to the next month.

This method works well for adding small numbers of days, but as the number of days grows, the process gets more tedious. For instance, adding 7 days to today is fairly quick using this method, but if you want to add 90 days, then this method can be a bit unwieldy and time-consuming.

Method Two: Add Days With Spreadsheet Software

You can also add days using software such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. This method is as easy as adding any other number.

Start by entering the start date in cell A1. Then, in another cell, enter the following formula to add 90 days to that date:

=A1 + 90

This will add 90 days to the date in cell A1. Of course, you can change the value of 90 to any other value you want to add.
