Add Static Date & Time To Cell
I am not sure whether this can happen, I want to capture time taken for different activities, without manually entering the details.I tried the formula "=Now()", but what happens is that at the end of the day the times are all the same because the live time is changing. Is there a way where the live time is captured and freezed, so that at the end of the day i have a time log sheet.

Static Date & Time Corresponding To Cell Change
What I need is lets say I have 3 columns Name, Date & Time
Name field has a drop down menu having a list of names
Now what I need is - lets say from the dropdown menu someone selects a name - THEN at the same instance the Time & Date fields gets populated with the Date & Time of that update.
and that Date & Time shouldn’t change if someone selects the same or different name in the row below
Kindly assist in lay man terms as I am a novice to Excel
In this format what I need is like above , the start date & start time should update real time ONLY when a name is selected
and when the End date is selected the End time , Date Elapsed & Time Elapsed should Populate automatically.
However there should be NO effect if data is entered or changed in the Request Id or Issue Cells - basically the triggers should only be Name field & End date Field
Can you attach an example sheet as well please
Have enclosed an sample attachment
Convert NOW() To Static Date & Time
Here is the code I'm using
Now H5 can be three different things, and all three different things are linked to three different cells. Once one cell gets populated with a date in this case is there a way to then have that cell stay populated even when H5 gets changed?

Add Date And Time Stamp To A Cell At The End Of Code
I have a userform that completes various functions and updates cells when a single button is clicked. Can I add code to the the end to enable a cell to be updated with the time and date, say cell A1 for example? Also is it possible to have the (Windows) username in another cell (all users will be unique) so it will save Jo Bloggs for example? I know this is possible as a Worksheet function:
Automatically Add Username, Current Date And Time Each Tiime Any Cell Is Changed
I am looking to have a macro which will automatically add the username and date to a cell, when the cell above changes (or in this case =x). I have a bit of code from a previous project, but I have changed Target.Row to Target.Column and it is not behaving as I require:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Range("B2:BZ2"), Target) Is Nothing Then
Range("C" & Target.Column).Value = Format(Date, "dd-mmm") & " " & Format(Time, "hh:mm") & " by " & (Application.UserName)
See the attachment for the example. What I need is whenever row 3 ="x" I need the corresponding cell in row "d" to update with the latest date, time and username. Please not the macro is currently not active on the sheet as i've added the ' character.
Static Date Stamp Certains Cell Changes
I belive i have a simple date stamp problem, but i do not know the correct VBA to edit the code posted below. I would like to have a datestamp placed in an adjacent cell based upon a particular value. For instance, If Cancel is entered into cell a2, then b2 would gave the date stamp. or if Started was entered into a2, then c2 would have the date stamp.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 2)
.Value = Date

Auto Static Time
When a value is placed in a cell (Mr Brown) I would like a static time to automatically appear in the next cell.
I have never written macros or used the VBA.
Can someone give me simple, step by step instructions on how to do it.
Add X Time To Current Date
I've been looking for an easy way to add time to a cell that has a time or date and time in it, for example, 5/31/2007 12:06:27 PM
I want to add 30 minutes to it, for example, without having to split it apart and manually add it in, worrying about adding an hour if I go over 60 minutes, etc.
If I was doing it with a cell formula, I could use "=A1 + TIME(0,30,00)" but I don't know what the equivalent would be in VBA.
Anyway To Make Auto Fill Time Value Static
I have 2 cell, A1 and B1. When any data is entered into A1, B1 will display the time corresponding to when the data was entered.
I was thinking about function for B1 would be "=IF(A1="","",now()) ". It worked such that it will display the time, however the value in B1 will automatically update itself if I were to randomly input any data in any other cell too.
For example, I input "testing" in A1. B1 display "11:20PM". Ten minutes later, I input "hello" in A2. B1 now display "11:30PM".
Anyone know a way to stop B1 from updating? or only update when new data is entered into A1 only?
Static Check Boxes With Time Stamp
I have a spreadsheet in which a check box fills the corresponding cell with the value "TRUE" if checked and "False" if unchecked. I use this check box for several functions (e.g. assigning a unique ID number). One of the functions I would like to make is a time and date stamp in another column when a user checks a box.
I have perused some of the past topics on this subject and there are a few hiccups in the other fixes.
1. I can't simply set the iterations to one because this sheet also is used to calculate expenditures, fund balances, etc. I need the calculations to be ongoing.
2. I currently have a check box macro that placed a check box on a thousand rows. It may require more rows later on. I need a solution that sets up a time stamp for all of these rows, not just a macro for one row at a time.
3. I need the time stamp to be static. I need to know when entries were made. I cannot use track changes, because we will be using this data to measure the effectiveness of our process. I need to be able to add and subtract the time between the timestamps.
Add X Hours By Condition To Date & Time
Column 1: Date Call is received by helpdesk
Column 2: Time Call is received by helpdesk
Column 3: Drop-down list indicating Priority of call (High,Medium,Low)
In Column 4 I want to enter a formula that adds working hours only to the date and time entered in Columns 1 & 2. The time added will vary depending on what is entered in Column 3 (e.g.: if priority is High add 1 hour, Medium add 2 hours, Low add 3 hours). The working hours i need to adhere to are 09:00-17:00, Monday-Friday.
Add And Subtract Date & Time To Return One Sum
I am trying to add/subtract dates and times to return one sum; but I only want to count the work week (5 days M-F) and work day (8 hrs.) 8am- 4pm. This is to compute the actual turn around time for a certain process.
Date ReceivedTime ReceivedDate ApprovedTime Approved10/1/20081:00 PM10/15/20089:00 AM
The total hours this process should equate to is: 9days and 6hours.
way to achieve this sum?
Making A Date Static
I have a rather simple question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere, even with a date stamp search on the board. I've found similar answers, but nothing specific to my problem.
I'm currently working on a department worksheet to track productivity. I have the formula in 2 cells to automatically display the current Sunday through Saturday dates when the worksheet is opened:=TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY()-1) in E1 and=E1+6 in E2However, I need these dates to be static once the week is over for each worksheet and the workbook will contain a sheet for each week in the month (I'm not sure if that matters). I know this needs to be done in VBA, but I can't find how (if possible).
I'm new to this board and not a super Excel pro, so any help would be fantastic! Also, I'm working with the company's very old Excel97.
Static Date Function
I have found threads that explain that if you want a to use the now() or today() function but make it static, you have to put a code in the worksheet relating to it.
I have read quiet a few threads, but i can't seem to make my code work.
I need to format column A to have the date format in it. I have a event procedure that puts Now() when run in Column A and I think i need to add the following code to the worksheet to make it static.
Copy Row If DATE & Time In Cell Is Between Time Span
I have a problem regarding sorting data having date and also time within a single cell.
Example data (I have written it as code to preserve formatting)
A B C D E F
12/5/2008 02:072/5/2008 06:0128804833363
22/5/2008 18:012/5/2008 18:0599271297
Column B is start date and time whereas Column C is end date and time.
My aim is to cut and paste the whole row automatically to Sheet2 if the time is within 2AM to 8AM else leave as it is.Also I don't know anything about VBA Script.
Formula For Static Date Formatting?
Here is what I currently have to make the cell blank and highlighted yellow in the event the date in K1 equals the second day of any month
Conditional formatting is just =DAY(K$1)=2
What I need to do is apply these same conditions to the cell if the date in K1 is equal to 02/10/10 or 04/10/10 or 06/10/10 or 08/10/10 or 10/10/10 or 12/10/10
Record Todays Date As Static
i am building a data base and every day, say, at 5pm a certain cell should contain a corresponding date. In my macro I simply wrote
I thought naiivly it would work, but it doesn't, as the next day the date will be changed correspondingly. So, the question is: how to record todays' date (Dec 29) so that this date stays in this cell forever? Only the date, not Excel Dates & Times
Static Date Upon Submission Of Data
Is there a way for the current date to be displayed next to an item on my "Inventory" Sheet automatically once that particular item number is entered on the "Sales" Sheet, making sure that the date will not change/update (meaning TODAY and NOW are out)?
Also, this date would have to remain attached with that particular item number even if one or both of the sheets were sorted differently.
Static Date Insert - Change When Modified
I have a spreadsheet that has the date in one cell. I want the date to remain static unless I make a change. ie, when I first create the sheet I want a static date to go into this cell. Then I only want this date to change if any changes are made to the workbook (several sheets), I dont want the date to change everytime I open the spreadsheet. It must however update if I make any changes to particular cells on various sheets.
Static Date Stamp Input From Two Cells

However, what I need to do is static date stamp the same cell, H3 but when a "1" is entered into EITHER E3 or F3
Volatile Formula Returning Date To Be Static
I've posted this question in another site http://en.allexperts.com/q/Excel-105...xExp_72253.htm , but i haven't gotten any answer. I'm attaching an example of the file to show an idea of what i'd like to do, please check first. As you can see, i have a Due Date and Priority columns. The Due Date column has a formula, that when i choose the Priority level, it calculates the Due Date from the current date and auto populates in the cell. The problem is, when i open the file the next day, and insert another Priority level, it updates everything even the previous Due Date entry. This is the formula i have in place for the Due Date:
Is there a way to make up a vb macro to be able to make the Due Date output static, without affecting the formula?
Automatically Insert Static Date In Different Columns Of Same Row
I recently found on this site the macro to auto insert a static date in one column when an entry was made in the previous column.
What I have in my spreadsheet and what I would like to be able to do is if I select a particular Order Status from a drop down list, that it auto inserts the date into the respective columns.
Column F contains the various Order Status indicators ie Order Submitted, PO Raised, Delivered, and Invoice Received.
The date columns that I would like populated and which correspond to those status indicators (in order) are Column G, Column I, Column L, and Column K.
So if I pick Order Submitted, the status date should be auto populated in Column G. If I pick PO Raised, the status date should be auto populated in Column I etc.
Remove The Time From A Cell With Date And Time In It?
I have data exported from a defect management tool (that reports all the defects that have been recorded in the defect management system). This data has unique columns for name of originator, defect ID, date originated, priority, etc. The date originated column has the date and time. I want to create a report that tells me how many High, Medium and Low priority defects were created on each date - and I am using a pivot table to do this.
However, because the date column is actually the date and time the defect was reported/recorded, the time element of this is making all the dates unique eg, I have three defects recorded on 29/01/2009, a High priority defect (reported at 29/01/2009 12:23) and two Medium priority defects (reported at 29/01/2009 13:02 and 29/01/2009 13:32). My pivot table is showing each date as a unique date - with a count of 1 against each, whereas I want to see 1 date entry (for 29/01/2009) with a count of 1 against High and 2 against Medium.
I have tried custom formatting the date column to dd/mm/yyyy - which appears to work in the data (but doesn't in the pivot table, because the time stamp is still there, just not visible). I have tried copy and paste special [Values] (on the custom formatted date column) -but the time stamp is still there. I have tried formatting the date column to "General", but this changes the dates to the number format - eg 29/01/2009 12:23 becomes 39842.5166203704.
I have tried inserting a new column and using the =Left function for the first 10 characters of the cell (ie the 29/01/2009), but that gives the first 10 characters of the number form of the date, ie 39842.5166. Basically, without going into every date cell (and I have thousands) and manually deleting all the times, how do I quickly change the date column into just having the date in it (ie how do I strip off the time element)?
Search & Replace Date In Date And Time Cell
I have several hundred rows of date/times which I need to modify just the date (for example 08/23/2007 11:00 to 08/15/2008 11:00). Each row may have a different time so it is just the date I'm targeting for change.
If I manually use the replace dialog, replacing 08/23/2007 with 08/15/2008 works just fine. However, if in code I attempt to use the Cells.Replace function, it does not locate any data to change.
I have found that if I search for the string 8/23/2007, the dates are located and changed. Only when I attempt to find the fully formatted date 08/23/2007 does the function fail.
Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm
I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then
TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value
TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM")
TextBox2.Value = ""
"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?
Split Date & Time Cell & Format Time As Hundreth Of Second
I have one column with as many as 50,000 or more rows. The data format for each row/ cell is unique as shown below ( date and time). I wanted to split the data as shown in "Formatted Data" below. Have Tried Text To Column formatting but didn't work right.
Raw Data: Formatted Data (2 cells):
2005/11/02 23:55:15.758 ==> 2005/11/02 23:55:15.758
2005/11/02 23:58:16.698 ==> 2005/11/02 23:58:16.698
Add Future Date To Cell
I want to have a future date (30 days from today’s date) added to a cell in column A only if that cell is already blank and column N has an “O” in that same row. Here is the code that I have right now, and it works to add a value based on the conditions that I just described. I just don’t know how to get it to add a date to that is 30 days in advance of today’s date.
If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "O" And Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Value = "" Then
Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Value = "1"
Record Date & Time In Cell Corresponding To Changed Cell
When a cell changes i would like the cell in the next column to record the date of this change. After achieving this i want to set up conditional formatting to compare this date to the current date and if they are the same then change the original cell's colour to show it changed today!
I started using the code below (from ozgrid) which was working fine BUT my cell value in column A is actually taken from a different column. when the different column cell value changes my cell in A changes but the script below does not seem to see this as a change. it only records the date if i physcially change the cell in A rather than another cell prompting it to change.
based on my overall objective and my plans to date please can someone suggest a solution?
current code below....
Reference Cell X Rows/Columns From Static Cell
I have a worksheet where everything in column A links to a different workbook. Does anyone know if there is a formula that can then look at the cell reference in column A and take the value from a set row in that same column? For example:
The cell in column A2 is set to cell Q1 in a different workbook. I need a formula in cell C2 that will then bring in the value of cell Q64 in that same workbook. Therefore always bringing in the value of row 64 for whichever column the cell in column A is et to.
Recording Date And Time In A Cell When Another Cell Is Activated.
I would like to have people enter text in the cells in column A and record the Date and Time they did it in the same cells in column J.
I have tried (in cell J1) If(A1<>"", NOW(),"") but of course the problem is that it keeps updating to the present time. I tried using INT(NOW()) but that doesn't work
I know I could simply Copy and Paste Special over each cell in the J column but that seems terribly inelegant.
