I have a friend from california he has got office over here in europ but because of work he needs too change his dates in excel too american format how can i do this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link __ http://downloadreimage.com/download.php__. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

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:http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datet...As 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.

2 more repliesFor some reason as I have added dates to cells, they are not getting converted to the Date type I have selected: 15/03/2009I type in my entries in this format:March 15, 2009 (usually it converts immediately but not this time)I've tried selecting the columns of cells with dates, Select>Format>Cells>Date and Type but nothing changed (although one date was converted to 03-15-2104Any suggestions?

Dat's cuz they're probably not being recognized as dates by Excel. My guess from afar is that the cells are formatted as Text and aren't accepting any other formats. Excel is finicky like that sometimes.Try this with one of your stubborn "dates"...let's assume it's in A1=DATEVALUE(A1)Now format that cell anyway you want.Then do a Copy...PasteSpecial...Values to eliminate the formula.

Hi All,I am updating a old spreadsheet and wanted to add some work days down the side of it. The problem I have is that I only want Mon-Friday dates to be listed. For example....12/3/201212/4/201212/5/201212/6/201212/7/201212/10/2012etc.....For some reason I can't get it to work right. In this example you can see that the first work day for Dec is the 3rd and that the 8th and 9th are passed over because they are a weekend. I know I have done this before I just can't remember how I did it. I was able to click on a cell and drag down to highlite a months worth of cells and put in a formaula in the first cell and then all the dates would just show up below it. Anyone have any ideas?ThanksSpoiler

Are dates for all rows part of the existing data? If so, then one approach might be to add a column to show the day of the week and then use a Filter to show all days except Saturday and Sunday.

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!

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))

4 more repliesHey 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

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

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

Some faults may stretch over more than one working day, or over a weekend.

Is there a simple way to do this?

For the J15 formula, what do you want to return if the date in I15 is equal to 1/1/2014?The same question holds for the formula in K15: What if the date equals one of the 2 dates that you are checking for?BTW, the solution will be based on the IF function.

Probably a simple solution to a fairly simple question but it's had me stumped for ages.In the first column i typed in a date (26-03-08)what i then want to do is drag this date down and for it to increase in value by weeks ie 02-04-08, 09-04-08 etc. Can it be done, or have i got to go through and type it all out (which would have been quicker now with the time i've spent mucking around).Many thanksNos

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.

2 more repliesQuick question.

Lets say I have a date.

11/01

Is there a formula that would return and IF statement?

For example

I am looking to all the dates between 12/15 and 01/15

I have tried to create a formula using the IF statement, but cant only get the first half.

=IF(A1<=12/15,"TRUE","FALSE")

But how do I get the second half for it to check if if the date is less then 01/15? every time I try I get an error.

Howdy. If I understand correctly. Be sure to check year, since the year will be in the cell whether it displays or not.

=IF(AND(A1<=12/15,A1>01/15),"TRUE","FALSE")

Some times I have only the year (eg 1914). Other times I have the full date (eg 12/25/2011). If I format the Excel for as a date and enter merely 1914, it shows as 3/28/1905 (its reading only the "1914"). I do NOT want to enter 1/1/1914 - because that is an incorrect date (all I have is the year 1914). What I want: If I have only the year, I want only the year (eg 1914) to show. If I have the full date, I want the full date (eg 12/25/2011) to show. How do I do it? Does it require an IF statement?

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:http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datet...MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

5 more repliesHi 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:

Range("K1").Select

Do

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??

Please help.

You can put as many as you'd like in there to achieve what you're trying to do.This is just a shot in the dark, but I've re-read your posts several times now and am wondering if it would work the way you want if you change the formula in A2 to something like this:=IF(A1>DATEVALUE("5/31/2014"),"GOOD",IF(A1>DATEVALUE("6/31/2014"),IF(A1>DATEVALUE("5/31/2014"),"EXPIRED","EXPIRING SOON"),"EXPIRING SOON"))I really think you will need to play with the formula above to make it work, but I think something like this is going to be your best bet.Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about.

Hey

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?

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

In D1 type =DATEVALUE(CONCATENATE(A1,B1,C1))

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

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...

??

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.

3 more repliesThis should be simple and I thought I had it nailed, but the formula is not working, so I am obviously doing something wrong.I have two adjacent columns. The first column is always populated with a date and the second column may be populated with a date or may be blank. I am trying to determine if one or both dates are greater than 3/1/2008, then the row is "OK"; if neither date (or if the second column is blank) is before 3/1/2008, then that row is out. Here's what I tried to use: =IF(OR(H2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008"),I2>DATEVALUE("03/01/2008")),"OK""OUT").The formula just does not return the correct result. Thanks for the help.

17 more repliesI am working with an Excel file and I have today's date autopopulating in cell C1 using the NOW function. In cell b12 I enter the date of an instance, for example 4/15/2013, then in C12 I am using the function of IF(B12="","",SUM(B12+30)) to give me 30 days from the date. In cell H12 I am trying to have that cell autopopulate if the date in C12 is older than today's date in C1. I have written the formula the way I feel it should work, but it is not working yet. Here is what I have =IF(C12="","",IF(C12<C2,"","X")). Once I get that working there is another formula for me to add where it turns the line red if there is an X in H12. It seems like a lot of stipulations and connections and I know if one thing is off, then more than likely even more will not work.Thank you

I don't see where you are using C2 for anything, so I can't answer any question related to IF(C12<C2,"","X").BTW, if you are only dealing with Dates, why not use =TODAY() instead of = NOW()?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I want to make a new column of months from a date

I have a detached with column A as a normal date format 01/12/2006 DD/MMM/YYYY

I then in column B use the month function - so = month(A1)

it displays 12 - and if I go onto the Fx to see the expression helper / wizard

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

Does Excel (version 9.0) have a feature which will allow me to compute various day/month/year time lapses? For instance can I compute the number of months between Oct. 1, 2003 and September 31, 2013? Or if I want to determine what day it is 25 years from today? I can do this on my handheld, but would like to design an Excel formula for it. Any help would be appreciated.

Use the datedif function

i.e. =DATEDIF(Date1,Date2,"Interval")

Where

Date1 is Start Date

Date2 is the end date

Interval is one of the following: You must use the inverted commas

"m" Months

The number of complete months between Date1 and Date2.

"d" Days

The number of days between Date1 and Date2.

"y" Years The number of complete years between Date1 and Date2.

"ym" Months Excluding Year

The number of months between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"yd" Days Excluding Years

The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same year.

"md" Days Excluding Months And Years

The number of days between Date1 and Date2, as if Date1 and Date2 were in the same month and the same year.

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.

6 more repliesHello.

I am exporting different data (about the same records) from a couple of sources into Excel.

I then use VLOOKUPs to collate the data into 'complete' records.

One particular thing I need to do is flag late records as "Late". I tried to do this by entering a formula similar to this:

=IF(H2>B2, "Late", "")

Where H2 is the Delivery date and B2 is the Required By date.

These two dates are from different sources. The problem I have is that the Required By dates are not being recognised as dates.

The Delivery dates are in the UK format dd/mm/yyyy and are fine.

The Required By dates appear to be in the format dd/mm/yy.

The IF calculation fails to yield any results.

You know when you change a date format to a number format, it shows the 5 figure date reference number? Well, that happens with the Delivery dates and not with the Required By dates. In other words, Excel is failing to recognise the Required By dates as dates.

The only way around this I've found so far is to Find & Replace on each date - so I'll find all instances of 01/07/04 and Replace with 01/07/2004. Then I'll do the same with each subsequent date in the period (usually about 2 weeks worth of dates).

Is there any way I can force Excel to recognise these dates, or to convert them to dates in a quicker way?

Thanks

Gram

Hi Gram ; what does the "Required By" format show up as initially -- text?

Try entering "1" (the number) in a (General format) free cell & copying it. Then select the range of "Required By"s & Paste Special -- Multiply. This may well convert them to serial #s.

Formatting a column of dates in excel should be simple but i can't figure it out. I am trying to create a date column that is going to be used for keeping track of important mail when it comes in. All I want is the formatting to be: 02/14/11. i want to be able to type 021511 and have excel put in the forward slashes. whenever i put in the date 02/14/11 and hit enter it gives me these numbers: 08/14/58. Please help!

Dates and Times are stored by Excel internally as numbers, known as Date Serial numbers. The integer part of the number is the Date, the decimal portion is the Time.21411 is 21,410 days since Day 1 of Excel time (1/1/1900) , therefore any cell already formatted as a date is going to convert the serial number to the date represented by that number in the format chosen. 8/14/1958 is 21,410 days after 1/1/1900, so that is what gets displayed.If you entered 21411.74598 and the cell was formatted to show both the Date and Time, you would see 8/14/1958 5:54:13 PM since .74598 of a 24 hour day is 5:54:13 PM.Try these exercises:Enter 2/14/11 in A1.Enter =A1+1 in A2Enter =A1+30 in A3 re: "i want to be able to type 021511 and have excel put in the forward slashes. "The only way that is going to happen is if you use a macro to tell Excel to change what was entered to something else.Let's assume you want this to happen in Column A, excluding Row 1. Right click the sheet tab for the sheet you want this to happen in and choose View Code.Paste the following code into the pane that opens. It will read whatever is entered and add the slashes. It has to check for a 5 digit number since Excel is going to strip off the leading 0 of 021411 before dealing with the number. In actuality, you don't even need to enter it since the code will add the leading 0.Technically, the value that appears in the cell will be a "text value" not a date. However, Excel is usually smart enough to recognize the value... Read more

Or, vice versa if the done date is after the due date I want the cell to automatically format with a red background.I also need to account for if the done date matches the revised due date but not the original due date.Is something like this even possible?

Have you tried using the greater than, less than and equal operators to compare the dates? All you are looking for are formula that return TRUE when your conditions are met.

7 more repliesI have attached the example document.

Would like to know if i entered in a known date, how would i have it add in a known remaining years.

if the years calculate by a point and not a month.

Ex. there are 12 years in a month. there are only 10 whole numbers in the calculation.

so if the computer gives me a remaining life of 2.5 years that would mean two years and 6 months.

but what if the computer gives me 2.2 remaining years? how many years and months is that?

And once the 2.2 is figured out how can i have it auto calculate that to the known date that i have to give

me a total date with the computer date and the know date?

Let me know if the example is not explained well enough.

You don't need your chart to figure out the decimals. Probably the easiest way to do it is:

=B22+365.25*C2

This multiplies 365.25 (the average number of days in a year) times your half life to get the total number of days represented by the half life. Then add that to your date. It may be off by a day or two (depending on the half life) since some years have 365 days and some have 366, but it should be very close. Hope that helps.

Excel 2010 is automatically entering dates.Take for example I type in 1/28 for 1 out of 28 it gets replaced with Jan-28 in date format. I am really confused. Can anyone help me with this as It is an URGENT matter

Another option is to pre-format all of the cells that you are planning to enter this sort of data into as text. As long as you are not going to do any calculations on the data, this will prevent it from automatically switching to date formatting. -----IT Desktop & Network Consultant - MOS Master Certified, MCP, MCSA, MCITP - Windows 7, CCNA Certificate Pending, A+, Network +::geek::

I am using excel 2007 on my laptop.

I've searched both this site and google for a few days now but I haven't found anything that seems to be what I need.

I am trying to get Excel to email me when one of these dates is 7 days away or less, unless the column says completed. Then I don't want an email.

I want the email to basically say:

EMPLOYEE NAME is due for their WK? meeting within 7 days. Please schedule this in.

The employee name and WK4/8/12 should be pulled from the sheet.

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:

Code:

=A2-B2

'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.

Do you need it exclude Weekends & Holidays?Then use the NETWORKDAYS() function which looks like:=NETWORKDAYS(start_date,end_date,[holidays range])So with your Start Date in A1, your End Date in B1and you list of Holidays is the range C1 thru C10it would look like:=NETWORKDAYS(A1,B1,C1:C10)If you do not need to exclude Weekends or Holidaysthen you could use the DATEDIF() function:=DATEDIF(start_date,end_date,unit)The units are "D" Day, "M" Month, ""Y" Year and several others.=DATEDIF(A1,B1,"D")or you can do a simple subtraction:=B1 - A1Take your pick.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

2 more repliesI need an Excel formula which can count the number of days between dates. The answer must include both the start date and the end date.For instance, if I have 2 October 2006 in one cell and 6 October 2006 in another cell; the total number of days is 5 including both the first date and the last date.How do I calculate this in Excel?Thanks in anticipation.

=DATEDIF(A1,B1,"d")+1where the earlier date ia in A1, the later date in B1. Format the result cell as Number.

2 more repliesI have just upgraded from WinXP to Win7 and after reinstalling Office 2007 one key [for me] facility does not now seem to be available.

I like to input dates in Excel thus 28.11.11 but want the cell to show 28 Nov 2011. The regional settings in Win7 allow any format but I haven't yet found a way to get what I want. Spaces work as do slashes but I don't consider them to be as convenient as points (periods or full stops).

WinXP did have such a facility in regional setting but it has either been deleted or is just well hidden in Win7.

I do this through Excel itself. When you type 28/11/11 in the cell then I find it automatically converts to 28/11/20111. However to get what you want then on the hone ribbon click on the small arrow bottom right of number and choose custom. In the type box put dd mmm yyyy. If you highlight a whol column by clicking n the top before setting the format all of that colum will be in that format.

5 more repliesI have a spreadsheet with dates in the format DD-MMM-YYYY (ex: 22-MAR-2012). I want to use an IF function to classify these into 3 different time frames. Pre-Validation <= 20-Feb-2012PE = 21-Feb-2012 through 30-Apr-2012Post LD >= 01-May-2012I am using =IF(I2>=$P$2<=$Q$2,$O$2,IF(I2>$P$3,$O$3,IF(I2<=$P$1,$O$1)))I2 = 22-Mar-2012P2 = 21-Feb-2012Q2 = 30-Apr-2012P3 = 01-May-2012P1 = 20-Feb-2012O1 = Pre-ValidationO2 = PEO3 = Post LDHowever, my formula gives me Post LD when it should be PE.What am I doing wrong?

I had a typo above. I copied and pasted this one. :) =IF(I2>=$P$3,$O$3,IF(I2>=$P$2,$O$2,$O$1))P2 = February 21stP3 = May 1stSo, if my cell is greater than or equal to P3, then it is Post LD (O3)And, if my cell is greater than or equal to P2, then it is PE (O2)And then if my cell is neither of those it is Pre-Validation (O1)

Can someone help me with dates in conditional formatting.

I have a column of dates (G) in a spreadsheets.

I would like to highlight all dates between now and the end of March 2010.

Any ideas?

try this

=AND((A2)>TODAY(),(A2)<DATE(2010,3,31))

where you numbers start at A2

then copy the cell

paste special

format into the rest of the cells

see attached example - sample in column A

I have a table with start dates in col 1, end date in col. 2 and difference in days in col 3.However for some reason the formula, say, =B1-A1 doesn't always work. In some lines it's OK and in others it displays #VALUE! The formatting of the various cells appears to be OK yet the symptoms persist.I'm stumped. Any solutions?

You will get that error if one (or both) of the dates is actually a text string, not a date. To test this, assuming that a problem date is in A1 then in a spare cell try the formula=ISNUMBER(A1)If that returns FALSE it is a 'text date'.Id that is the case then, with one column at a time, select the dates, Data > Text to Columns, click Next twice then on the third screen tick Date and select DMY then click Finish.

Hi,I hope there is a relatively easy solution to an issue I've tried to resolve and am completely stumped!!! The information I'm working relates to airline arrivals and departures.I get a simple spreadsheet on a monthly basis (I've attached an abbreviated copy) that tells me:Flight 123 will arrive at xx:xx time and depart at yy:yy time on dd/mm/yyFlight 234 will arrive at xx:xx time and depart at yy:yy time on dd/mm/yyetc.The problem I'm having is the format of the arrival and departure information: it currently is listed in the columns as "Effect" for the first date it will occur that month, and "Discon" for the last date it will occur that month. (ie: Flight 123 will start arriving on 4/02/11 and do so daily until 4/17/11.What I'm trying to do is manipulate the spreadsheet so it will display the info for the inclusive dates in between....ie: Flt 123 also comes in on 4/03/11, 4/04/11, etc. If it could do that, I could then do a simple pivot table based on the dates and arrival/departure times. (the second page of my attached sheet is the pivot table I've got so far).My goal with the pivot table is to reflect simply each day of the upcoming month, and to reflect the total flights arriving between 0700-0759hrs that day, between 0800-0859hrs that day, etc. Is this something someone could review and give me some guidance? I'm not very proficient at Excel yet, but I'm learning! Thank You,Dave(Also... if w... Read more

Regarding my earlier post, this is an abbreviated version of the original spreadsheet (with a pivot table)...

Thanks again for any guidance or assistance!! Dave

I know that taking one date away from another will calculate the numbers of days in between but can I calculate length of time when either one date or both dates are before 1900?Thanks

If one date is before 1900 and one is after you will get an answer 1 day too large. This is because of a (deliberate) bug in Excel that treats 1900 as if it was a leap year (which it wasn't).A deliberate bug? Microsoft copied the bug from Lotus 1-2-3 to ensure compatibility between the two spreadsheets. Amazing but true.

4 more repliesI have a small problem in excel spredsheet with the date when I set date d/m/y and save when I open up the next time the date has changed to m/d/y only on the singel days

1 through to 9 when I enter two numbers 10 to 31 no problem can any one please help

Are you sure it's only 1 through 9 that it happens on and not 10, 11 and 12 also? I'm guessing that it's confusing the month with the day so when you enter a number greater than 12, it knows that must be the day but it's not sure what to do with 1-12. Let me know if I'm wrong and if it really is only 1 through 9.

When I enter dates in the Uk english format (dd/mm/yyyyy) in Excel 2007, even though they are formatted to display dd/mm/yyyy, they are dispayed in the US english format (mm/dd/yyyy). The formula bar shows that the cell contains a date in the UK format as entered. The language setting in Excel Options is UK.

I wrote a macro containing an InputBox requesting a date, having previously defined the variable for this input as Date. The input is entered in the UK format but when assigning the value of this variable to a cell, it is displayed in US format. Not only is it displayed contrary to the custom format, but the content is rubbish. For example, when the date 31 October 2009 is entered into the input box in the UK format, 31/10/09, it is transposed to a date value of October 09, 1931 in the formula bar and displayed in the cell as 10/09/31.

Any ideas???

I'm trying to copy a date into successive cells in a column; re several entries happened on 07/08/2012. When I copy it it shows as 07/08/2013, 07/08/2014, etc in the successive cells? Help please!

It's probably a formatting issue. You can try to clear all formatting from the cells prior to entering a date and filling the series. If it's not a formatting issue, after you fill the series down, click on the small button in the bottom right of the range with a plus sign that shows up. You should have the option to Fill Days.

Excel 2007

I want to calculate the time (in years) between 2 dates ... so that a 27 month span would appear as 2.25 years.

Using the formula " =year(A1)-year(A2) " yields an answer in whole years. I want an answer accurate to 1 (or 2) decimal places.

Defining the cell with the above formula in it, as a "Number" with 1 (or 2) decimal places does not do it,

Any suggestions ?

Thanks
