Does anyone know how to create new functions?

I am trying to write a formula that will return the Date Modified fo
another cell. Does anyone know how to do this?

I tried entering the formula =IF(C2="Complete", TODAY(), "")
but that only returns me todays, date and not the date that I marked m
task as complete.

Can anyone help? :

TODAY() is a volatile function and shows always today. That means the
value is changing every new day.
You have to write your date manually or with VBA.

if your "Complete" is in column C and the date should be in column D,
then right click on sheet tab and paste the code into the code window:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Intersect(Target, Range("C:C")) Is _
Nothing Then Exit Sub

If Target = "Complete" Then _
Target.Offset(0, 1) = Date
End Sub

In other case please post your table layout
