How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

Question: How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

I have no idea if this is even possible, but I would like to create a spreadsheet that auto-populates a series of dates based on one date that the user enters. Let's say I have a goal date to complete a project, and for every project I work on, something needs to happen 6 weeks prior to the goal date, another thing needs to happen 4 weeks prior to the goal date, and something else needs to happen 1 week and 5 days before the goal date. I would like to set up 4 cells in Excel: one for the goal date, and three for the various things that need to happen leading up to that goal date. I would like to be able to enter the goal date into the main cell and have the other three cells auto-populate with the correct date based on what I enter in the goal date. For example, if I enter a goal date of 11/01/2016, I would like the other three cells to automatically populate themselves with: 09/20/2016 (6 weeks prior), 10/04/2016 (4 weeks prior), and 10/20/2016 (1 week and 5 days prior). Is this possible? Can Excel return dates in that way?

Answer: How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

Sure, it's easy. Excel internally stores Dates and Times as numbers. Each day is a whole number and time is the decimal portion of that day. See here for a pretty good explanation of how Excel deals with Dates and Times as well as links to all the various Date and Time functions that Excel offers: for your question, simply subtract the number of Days required from the cell with the Goal Date.With 11/01/2016 in A1, use this to return 9/20/2016:=A1-42(42 is 6*7, or 6 weeks.)I'll leave the other two formulas to you. ;-)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hi all,
I want to generate dates automatically in Access 97 for a contact database. For instance, if the last contact was made on day a, I want to generate in the "next call" column day a + 3 months/90 days (call that day b). If a contact was made before day b, I want the column to generate a new next contact date equal to b + 3 months/90 days. (As for the 3 months/90 days, I can go with either).
Finally, I would like the system to send an e-mail notice, if possible, telling the person here at work that person x is to be contacted on this date. (We don't use Outlook, or I suspect some of this could be done using that).

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Answer:Auto-generate new dates based on other data in Access

Use DateDiff function to determine the number of days compared to the current date. If it is >= 90 you can call an email function or module.

I know variations of what I want to do exist but I have not had success in implementation. I am using Excel 2007 and MS Outlook.

After opening the file, I would like the macro to look at all the dates in the sheet and send an email (.Display is preferred) each time a date gets within 1 year, 6 months (180 days) and 90 days of the current date.

The headers in the columns are:
A-First Name
B-Last Name
C-email address

D, E, F, G, H, I, J-Certification 1, 2 ,3 etc. (All contain various expiration dates)

K-1 Year email sent. I've gathered from reading that another column indicating if an email was sent is a good idea and may be needed to trigger the other events.
L-180 Day Email Sent
M-90 Day email sent

I manage a small database of paid memberships for a non profit. We are keeping up with membership dues and renewal dates in an excel spreadsheet. I would like to automatically generate an email through outlook 30 days before the renewal date, again 14 days before the renewal data (if they haven't renewed), again 5 days before renewal date (if they haven't renewed), and again 5 days after it has expired. Furthermore, I would like to customize the message of the emails if possible, including my signature that is saved in outlook.

In my limited knowledge of VBA/Macros, I would assume that I will need a column that is checked if a membership has been renewed, so that the macro will know whether to generate an email. Also, I am assuming that this would be easier if I had multiple macros instead of just one.

I am attaching a excel sheet that has the columns we will be using with dummy data.

Our employees can sell such things as vacation time, for example, 1 day of vacation pay but their request must be submitted by a certain time if they are to be paid. We can tell them what day they will be paid based on the date they submit their request. This can be confusing for a supervisor to explain and I wanted to automate it on an Excel sheet.
1. Employees receive their regular check every Friday as well as a check for any time sold.
2. As long as they get it into us within 7 days prior to Friday they will receive their check the next Friday.
3. If its greater than 7 days then it would be the Friday after next before they received the sold time check.
4. For example If an employee requested on May, 12th 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, or 17th to sell vacation time that check would be received by the next Friday i.e. May 25th. However, if they turned it in on May 18th. 19th. 20th, 21st, 22nd., 23nd, or 24th. they would receive it on June 1st.
5. This pattern continues throughout the year. Note that weekends are included.
6. I think the attached will better explain what I am trying to do.

Answer:Formula in Excel for a Date to Remain Constant Based on a Range of Dates

I think there is something wrong in the way you explain it but, could be my interpretation though
I adden a column using the Days360() function which shows the nr of days between the request date and the 'friday' date, maybe you can use that resulty to compute the new value.

I work in construction. We'd like to know if there is a way to work a calendar backwards. We have a "due on site" date, a material lead time and need to figure out when the item needs to be approved by in order to meet the "due on site" date.

Please help, thank you for your time.


Answer:Excel Auto Calculate Dates

Hi there, welcome to the board!

Yeah, you can absolutely do that. Dates are serial numbers in Excel, so you can do math on them. The question really becomes where is your "due on site" date located, and how do you want to calculate the approval date? Is this just a set number of days prior? Should it skip weekends? Holidays?

For a straight day calc, just mins the values:


'assumes "due on site" is in A2
'assumes material lead time (in days) is in B2
For skipping weekends and holidays we can make use of some of the many date functions in Excel, like WORKDAY() or NETWORKDAYS(). If you specify what you start with, and the expected results, we can write the function(s) for you.

My new problem is this:
I have calendar dates entered into a table that has records of transactions. In the reporting I need to create, the business months are different than the calendar months. For example, for July in the reports, I should do a summary based on the business month, July 5 to Aug 1.
My idea is to create another table where I would enter the start and end date for all business months, plus two other fields for the correspoding business year and business month (Business_Year, Business_Month, From_Date, To_Date; From and To are calendar dates in date format, Business Year and Business Month are numeric).
What I need is a query that would look at every record in the transaction table, then would look that calendar date up in the business months table, looking up which business year and business month it falls into, and return the value of the business month and business year for every record in the transaction table.
I was thinking about using DLookUp() function in the query that is based on the transaction table.
The best I could find on the net is something like this:
Year: IIf([Date]>[Business_Months].[From_Date] And [Date]<=[Business_Months].[To_Date],Year([Date]),"9999")
Month: DLookUp("Business_Month","Business_Months","Date > #" & [Business_Months]![From_Date] & "#") & DLookUp("Business_Month","Business_Months","Date <= #" & [Business_Months... Read more

Hi there,

I have a whole column of dates in this format in my table: 20080602

I want my macro to change the format of the dates from this 8-digit number string, into a date format that Excel can recognize (6/02/2008). Once the dates are re-formatted, I then want to have the macro select rows with dates that are up to four days of age only for the new report.

Here is what I've got to format the dates. When I run it, the macro stops at this point and tells me to debug, telling me I have a 'syntax error'. A what?

Selection.Format = Date(left(a1,4), mid(a1,3,2), right((a1,2))
Once I do get the dates right, how would I get it to select dates that are up to four business days in age only? This is what I thought I should use, but it doesn't work:

Selection.Format >=today()-4


Answer:formatting dates and selecting dates by age in vba?

I don't think that you can do what you want using the Format function as you have tried to do it. You are on the right lines with the Left, Mid and Right though.
in another column put this in a Cell on the same row as A1
=mid(a1,5,2) & "/" & right(a1, 2) & "/" & left(a1,4)
If that gives you the correct "look" then Drag that formula down the rest of the rows with Dates in. Then copy the whole Range of new look dates and Paste Special>Values over the first cell in that Range or in a new column and you should now have your Dates.
In the next column type in the first cell
= if(today() - Celladdress <= 4, "Yes", "")
Where celladdress is the cell with you first "Proper" Date.
This will place a "yes" in the column wherever the date is within 4 Days.
If this is not satisfacory and you really need to have a Macro to do this you can use the same "Formatting" in the Macro, but you will require a "For/Next or For/Each loop" to do it.

Hi,You haven't said if this is a one-time requirement or a regular requirement.I have written a short macro which assumes that this is a one-time requirement, and therefore there are few frills - for example, enter text that Excel does not recognize as a date, and the macro exits - no helpful messages or offers to try again.Right-click on the name tab of a worksheet in your workbook.Select 'View Code'In the large Visual Basic window that opens, enter this:Sub AddDatedWS()
Dim strStartDt As String
Dim strEndDt As String
Dim dtStart As Date
Dim dtEnd As Date
Dim wsNew As Worksheet
Dim n As Double

'get start date
strStartDt = InputBox("Enter start date", "Create dated worksheets")
If Not IsDate(strStartDt) Then Exit Sub
'get end date
strEndDt = InputBox("Enter end date", "Create dated worksheets")
If Not IsDate(strStartDt) Then Exit Sub

'convert text to Excel's date format
dtStart = CDate(strStartDt)
dtEnd = CDate(strEndDt)
'test if start date equal to or later than end date
If dtStart >= dtEnd Then Exit Sub

'confirm number of sheets
If MsgBox("Create " & dtEnd - dtStart + 1 & " worksheets", vbOKCancel) = _
vbCancel Then Exit Sub

For n = dtStart To dtEnd

'name it with a date (date text can't contain : \ / ? * [ or ])

Question: Dates and Excel

I have a sheet in excel which I input my daily results. Some dates or blocks of dates are missing as I am unable to gather the data. (vacation, travel, etc)Column A is the date (mm/dd/yyyy)Column B is the result (0.00)I have another sheet with the following:Column A has a list of all dates (month and day only) (366 rows) Columns B through M have the year in row 1I need to lookup the month and the day and attach the year based on the column year (this is easy)=VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2)BUT I need the exact date data returned. VLOOKUP returns the closest lower value.If no exact date then return 0 or "".Is there an easy way to do this in Excel without writing code?Thanks for helping in advance!

Answer:Dates and Excel

If you want an exact match, you need to use FALSE or 0 in your VLOOKUP as the optional range_lookup argument:=VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)Review the VLOOKUP Help file to see the options for this argument.If an exact match isn't found, this will return #N/A, so wrap the formula in an IF(ISNA()) function to get a "" of 0 if the VLOOKUP evaluates to #N/A. This will return "":=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE(MONTH($A2)&"/"&DAY($A2)&"/"&YEAR(C$1)),Generation!$B:$C,2,0))

Hi there

I'm having problems with dates in a macro. To simplify things, here is an example of my problem. I have code that goes something like this:

If Range("k1") <= Range("D9") then
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1") .select
End If
Loop Until ActiveCell >=Range("K1") or ActiveCell = ActiveCell.Text

Cells K1 and Cells D9, C9 and B9 all have dates. Assume that the dates are as follows:
K1 = Sept 05, 2005
D9 = Oct 15, 2005
C9 = Sept 05, 2005
B9 = Aug 2, 2005
A9 = text

The problem is that the cursor stops at the text cell (A9) and completely by-passes all the dates. It should stop at Cell C9. If C9 did not equal K1, then the cursor should stop at cell D9.

The macro works fine if I take out the inequality signs and just leave the equal signs. What Am I doing wrong??

Not sure what it is your after, but Excel stores dates and times as a number, representing the number of days since January 1, 1900So when you enter 1914, Excel reads it as 1,914 days since 01/01/1900or 03/28/1905.See this page for a complete explanation of how Excel works with Dates/Times:

I get told that i get a number returned 1-12 here 1 = Jan and 12 =dec

so that i format the =month(a1) into a MMM-YY format and
get Jan-1900 - I'm cool with the 1900 as i have not specified YYYY but why do i get Jan returned instead of Dec

But what I'm after and maybe a simpler way is to have a dropdown on my pivot table of MM-YYYY from my date field rather than DD-MMM-YYYY

so I can choose and show month data

I'm sure I did this in the past just by using format - MMM-YYYY on a date field and it worked in the picot table OK

any help appreciated

I am trying to subtract two dates in excel but I keep getting weird results...

My dates are formatted like this: 8/11/2010

I am using TODAY() to return the current date. Then I want to compare that to see how many days have passed since a given date. So my formula is this: =TODAY()-D2

Now, it seems to kind of work because the result I get is 1/30/1911. 30 days is the correct answer! But why am I getting the full date?? How can I fix this? And why the heck is it saying 1911 - on another computer I tried it says 1/30/1900...


Answer:subtracting dates in excel... help please!

Look into the Datediff function. I think for what you want (doing this from the top of my head) is Datediff("d", D2, TODAY()) or you can sub TODAY() for NOW(). Like I said it is from the top of my head but should be something like that.

I have two columns of dates - a Due Date and a Completed Date - I want to compare the dates in each column and have the results appear in a table I have created on a separate sheet in the same workbook. If the completed date is after the due date for a certain type of information (contained in another column; ie, IMAC or Out of Scope), I want to count that instance as "Missed" in my table. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Need help comparing dates in Excel.

I don't quite understand how the "IMAC or Out of Scope" information relates to your question.If all you are trying to do is compare 2 values (dates) a simple IF function should do it for you:=IF(A1>B1, "Missed", "")This will return Missed when A1 is greater than B1 and return a blank cell if not.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hey there,I would appreciate if i get help on Excel Date formatting. Problem Statement: when I download the report from Business Intelligence, I get certain columns with Dates. The cell values are so rigid that, I can't format the dates which are in System driven format, and few are easy to convert to MDY, or DMY or whatever. But few, I cannot change. Second Problem: When all the data is related to Quarter 1, when I try to format the date, I end-up getting dates as 02-Sep-2011, but the actual date is 02/09/2011 when I pull it from reporting system.The date should be 09-Feb-2011. I have some 3000 lines of such adamant dates, help me to get out of this issue.Positively seeking anybody's help.Gracias/Thanks/Saludos/Dhanyawad/Shukriya

Answer:Adamant Excel Dates...

re: "I can't format the dates which are in System driven format,"I don't know what you mean by "System driven format" but I can tell you that very often data that gets downloaded from websites and/or other applications ends up in Excel as Text instead of numbers or dates.Since I can't see your spreadsheet from where I'm sitting, I'm going to take a guess and suggest that both of your problems are related to each other.Let's start with Problem 2:re: I end-up getting dates as 02-Sep-2011, but the actual date is 02/09/2011 This statement does not really make sense. 02/09/2011 could actually be 02-Sep-2011 or it could actually be 09-Feb-2011, depending on how Excel (actually Windows) is set up. Let me explain.The format in which Excel recognizes dates is based on the settings in the Regional and Language Control Panel, Customize button, Date tab. This is what determines whether the first 2 digits represent the day or the month.My guess is that the values that you cannot format as dates are those where Excel can not recognize the month.For example, since your system is recognizing 02/09/2011 as 02-Sep-2011 I'll assume that your Windows setting is something like dd-mmm-yyyy.Excel has no problem changing 02/09/2011 to 02-Sep-2011 since 09 is a valid month, but it wouldn't know what to do with 02/15/2011 since there is no 15th month. My guess is that Excel decides that values like 02/15/2011 must be text and therefore cannot be formatted as a date.Try changing your Control panel s... Read more

Hi,I am looking to write If statement that if I write a date into cell A2, then A1 will display "Good" if its within 4 years since the date in A2, or A1 will display "Expiring Soon" if its between 4-5 years after A2, or A1 will display "Expired" if its 5 years after the date in A2. I have never used If statements with dates before so I don't know where to start and any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,

Answer:How to If Statements Using Dates in Excel?

re: "if its within 4 years since the date in A2"By its I assume you mean today's date. If so...Take a look at the EDATE function. EDATE returns the serial number that represents the date that is the indicated number of months before or after a specified date (the start_date).e.g. For your 5 year (60 months) expiration criteria, this should work.=IF(EDATE(A2,60)<TODAY(),"Expired","")Basically what this says is "If I add 60 months to the date in A2 and the result is less than today's date, then the date in A2 must be more than 5 years ago."The "inverse" of that is to subtract 60 months from today's date to get the same result:=IF(EDATE(TODAY(),-60)>A2,"Expired","")Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.message edited by DerbyDad03

I have imported data from an outside database and it brought in the dates seperated. The information is in columns and the day, month (which is in text), and year each have their own cell. There are hundreds of dates. Due to space considerations I need each date to only take one cell. Is there any way to do this without having to do it by hand?

Answer:Solved: Dates in Excel

Not sure which version of Excel you are using, but am assuming 2007. I will also mention what to do if you are using 2003 or earlier

Create a blank worksheet and do the following so that you can see how the following formula works and then how to convert it as a value rather than a formula

In A1 type 24
In B1 type June
In C1 type 1990

Assuming you have similar data in the Columns A, B and C, copy the formula in D1 down column D until you have a formula for each row of data in A, B, C

Select all the formulas in column D and click on Home Ribbon tab ans click on the Copy Icon to place it in the clipboard. 2003 and earlier Edit, Copy

Whilst those cells are still selected click on Home ribbon tab and click on the little down arrow just under the Paste button and select paste values. 2003 and earlier Edit, paste Special, Values OK

Your data in column D will now be as a date (not a formula) which in the background is treated as a number, which then allows you to do calculations on the dates.

Now select columns A, B and C and delete those columns

You are now left with column A and the dates in single cells.

Hope that helps

Hi there.

I am trying in Excel 2007, to do the following:

A guy phones in a fault. The date and time are recorded. When the fault is fixed, the date and time are recorded again. I need to calculate the response time, but I need it to only look at business hours, which are 8 to 5, Monday through Friday, when calculating this. Some faults may stretch over more than one working day, or over a weekend.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Dates input to Excel are being treated simply as a text string and not recognised as dates. Apparently, all was OK until recently (this is a friend's problem). Old spreadsheets suffer the same problem, so it seems to be a global problem.Any ideas please?

Answer:Excel not recognising dates

The cells have to be formatted to accept dates rather than text or numbers. Goto Format/cells after selecting those that need to be dates.
