When I am bring data into Excel from Access - the dates are getting converted from mm/dd/yyyy to the general format (39564). How can I change this back to a date? Can it be done in the SQL statement? The selecting of a column and formatting it will not work for my app. Columns do not line up.
Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
cnn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
MySQLcheck = "SELECT [WAREHOUSE],[PARTNUMBER],[ORDER_NUM],[TRANS_DESC],[QUANTITY],[AVAIL_QTY],[ENTER_DATE],[TRANS_DATE] from CUS_REQ"
Set rst = cnn.Execute(MySQLcheck)
FieldCount = (rst.Fields.Count)
I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.
The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:
In Access date column headers from query are: 09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.
But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as: 01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc
It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.
First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.
I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access
Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
When I tried to import data in a CSV file, I ran into a couple of issues when trying to change the date format from MM/DD/YYY to other date format. I've already tried a couple things to no avail:
1. Use text to column functions and change the format from text to MMDDY 2. Use format cell function and change the date format 3. Use the text function (text(Cell,"MM-YY"))
Interestingly when I click on the cell and put my cursor and press backspace, the format will change. It seems like there's an extra space, but using the trim function does not work. I can't do this to thousands of data manually.
I am trying to find a way in Excel 2007 to convert the date from US format to UK format, I tried to change it by using [right click=>Format cell=>Select Date=>Select the first option in Type:*14-03-01=>OK], but I doesn't work , the attached file are presenting the date in US format.
in the date fields excel only recognises some of them as date, so when I try to change the format of dates (mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy) it only changes some of them so I end up with some wrong dates.how I can make excel read them all as date?
How can I get my time format in excell to be like it is in access ie. 1:00 Pm. I want to put the time format in my excell spreadsheet and make sure that people enter the time in that format and I dont want to lock the sheet. So is there a way to make certain that the time they put in is the way I want it!! 1:00 PM
I have a question about conversion of a text format into date format.
2 computers, the first windows vista, the second Windows 8, both Excel 2007.
The purpose is to calculate the difference between 2 dates with hour:minutes:seconds, like for example: 18/12/2012 19:20:00 and 18/12/2012 19:23:03.
So in this example the result should be 00:03:03.
Both dates are formatted with 'personalized' : dd/mm/yyyy hh/mm.
In the first computer everything works like it should, but in the second it is apparently impossible to transform the first of those date h:m:s which is originally in a text format into a date format. I tried all the methods which i found to transform a text date format into a date , like multiplication with 1, Datevalue and others, but nothing seems to work, the result is always "#Value".
I have a Column of dates in this format: 5/19/2014 8:08:44 AM I am trying to get this to read 20140519 or yyyymmdd It doesn't matter what format I change to, it will not update unless I activate the cell and then tab or enter out of it. I have 3000 rows to convert. with this either by setting or VB Sub?
I tried to upload my spreadsheet but the zipped excel spreadsheet was 78KB over the forum max. Its hard for me to explan this without you looking at the spreadsheet. Basicly I'm exporting data from Access to Excel into a spreadsheet. When the data exports into excel I want the data to be formated in such a way and this is where some code will need to be written. I've made up 2 spreadsheets within excel. One sheet is how the data comes into excel from access and the other sheet is how I'd like the data to look without me having to doctor the sheet every time I export.
I have a SS of a WW1 casualty list and one of the columns is Dates of Birth but the data has been entered in three different formats eg 21/2/1898 or 21.2.1898 or 21 Feb 1898. I have tried to Format Cells and change the date format to the slash but after highlighting a number of fields and right clicking they will not re format. Though i use Excel quite a bit i am a general user and dont understand it in depth.
I have some data coming in from another source system which has the date format as "DD-MM-YYYY" but while pasting it to Excel (2007) sheet some date fields has just DD-MM-YY format which disrupts my macro. I did changing the language settings to "English(UK)" ,which i wanted, and changed the same in Excel options as well. But unfortunately it doesn't work.
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
There are many examples and aspects to compare these 2 products but I just want to point one little difference which is quite crucial and interesting.
Generally if you use small amount of data - 1 Worksheet / 5000 rows / 20 columns you can use Excel without bothering about the execution time, queries and work fast and convenient with it.
The point on Excel is that in 1 Column/Row you can differently Format the data(cells). For example - format as Number or Hour the cells in Column B depending on the data in other columns. That saves you from making 2 Columns - one for Numbers and another one for Hours. This helps you to save 1 of the columns when the data structure in other column is the same.
In Access (and generally all SQL DBs) this is not possible.
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
