Automatic Date Insert

I have a "customer info column" column (b) and a "date column" column (a) is there a way that when i put a new customer into column B, that column A would automatically put the days date in which i put the new customer in column B. so b3 would have the new customers name and A3 would automatically have todays date (the day i input new customer) inserted.

so b4=new customer a4=todays date, tomorrow i input another new customer and then b5=new customer a4=tomorrows date and so on down the line.

there is no "right clickinsert date" or anything like that.

Prevent Automatic Date Format When Referencing Date Cell
I have been struggling with my Excel 07 Date format. Nearly every time I perform a calculation, enter in a value etc in a spreadsheet my answer is returned as a date. So for example if I enter in a cell: = 5 - 4. I get the answer "1-Jan-1900" instead of 1. I have to manually set the formats to general or number if I want the correct format. The setting seems to be the default one and occurs for all workbooks I open. What can I do to change this.

Automatic Date In Following Sheets
I have a week in sheet1. For eg.

01/07/07 in A1, 02/07/07 in B1 ....... 07/07/07 in G1.

Now in sheet2 I want to continue 08/07/07 in A1 ..... 14/07/07 in G1 and so on and so forth in following worksheets.

How can I automatically obtain the dates in corresponding columns in the following worksheets?

Automatic Date Format
When I type a date in, e.g. 01/01/07, the result is 01/01/2007.

01/01/28 => 01/01/2028
01/01/29 => 01/01/2029
01/01/30 => 01/01/1930
01/01/31 => 01/01/1931

Excel resets itself to '1900's' after XX/XX/30. Is there anyway to change this so any year I type will always be '20XX'?

Automatic Date & Autofill Text
I am making a movie ticket spreadsheet for the employees to use when selling movie tickets. Below are the feilds that I have. Everything is based on the number of tickets sold. So when someone sells 5 tickets I would like the date entered without changing when I update the sheet the day after.

Begin #End #$ Amount# SoldNamePayment AbbreviationDate

Under payment the payment abbreviation we use words like debit, cash, check, etc when selling a ticket. Can you type c in the payment abbreviation field and have it automatically put cash in the same field without using autocorrect?

Automatic Date Entry In Cell
I have a workbook with several sheets, each of which represents a client. At the bottom of this sheet, I have a call log to record the times that we attempted communication, left a message, etc. Since it's tedious enough as it is, I'd like to save my team 2 seconds and a slight bit of that tedium by having the date an attempt was made automatically recorded in the row where the attempt is entered.

Let's say this all takes place in A47:D47. For example, if I called the client on 7/15/08 and left a message, I would record who was called in B47, the name of the caller (me) in C47, and the result in D47. If possible, I would like to have the date of the attempt (today's date on the given day) entered in A47 upon the entry of information in B47:D47.

Automatic Week Commence Date
Attached is a sheet I use for my pubs to send me their financial information.

Unfortunately, like most staff - they become lazy and need to be kept in line, but when it comes to money, I need it all to work out exactly.

The sheet seems to almost perfect for what I need now, but for the week commencing date on the bar business sheet.

This is the master date for all the figures inputed so I need the week commencing date to always be correct from a Monday.

At the moment the formula I have in ensures that, but when I open it the following Monday to get the figures the date changes to the following Monday from when the sheet was started. there a Makro that can run that when you open the sheet for the first time it will ask for the week commencing date which will then lock that date or would it be better inserting another sheet called calendar with week numbers and do a lookup function so that a specific week number relates to a specific week commencing?

Automatic Updates; Concatenating Name Of Day To Date
I have two problems with my PivotTable: 1. My PivotTable consists of a constant number columns and varying number rows, eg.......

The dates (with data) should continue to update as I add new date records to the source datasheet, but they don't. I try the refresh option for the table, but it only updates for the dates that it was designed for. I also have automatic updates set, but so far nothing is working. I have to rebuild the PivotTable each day after I add new data...

2. Second problem are the date labels on the rows. I need to have them include the literal day of the week such as
Thursday 01/01/09
Friday 01/02/09

Another less urgent problem that I would like to solve is that I have included additional percent calculations for the total column that I am having to rebuild each time. Can that be included in the PivotTable as well?

Automatic Graph Scaling By Date
Look at the attached spreadsheet. It represents the times that the POG (Purchase Order Generator) program takes to run Could you look at producing a graph (easy enough) for the indicated data But then, could you see if you can have an input field in the graph that allows you to enter date – then the graph automatically redisplays for that day’s information only…….? And maybe automatic scaling for the graph? This is something I have been meaning to try – but don't know what to do.

For Example: Enter a date: 291106

**Then the information of what the user entered will automatically display but in a bar graph form. **How I can search for the information through excel? That will make the user easier to search than to find it manually?

Automatic Date And Time Upon Saving Workbook
Is there a way to automate the date and time in one cell upon saving? I have seen some posts elsewhere upon this subject, but here is the twist:
this is a shared workbook with each tab allocated for a different person. Each person needs to update their worksheet and have the date and time update upon saving. The date and time would appear in the same cell for each sheet. I am fairly certain that this cannot be done with an Excel formula, so I would appreciate if anybody had any VBA suggestions.

Example: original File name = test.xls

So, I open the file, do whatever, and then click save.

Automatic Current Date Formula Extracts From Specific Cell
formula that can automatically use the current month date to extract information from other cells on my spreadsheet.

For example: This formula should be located in cell C6. Cells D6, F6, H6, J6, L6, N6, P6, R6, T6, V6, X6, and Z6 (these cells correspond to the months of the year, January to December respectively) contain the values I need. The month names are labeled above in row five.

Let's say the current month is March, I need the formula in C6 to automatically know that it is the month of March and to pull the information from cell H6 (which is the March cell). Then when April comes along, it will know that it is April and to only pull the information from cell J6; and so on until the end of the year.

Automatic Finish Date & Time With Lunch Break And Bank Holidays
I would like a solution for the automatic calculation of the end date and end time for project tasks. I have already spent hours on the issue, thanks for any help on this.

The parameters are:
A1 = Start time 08:00
B1 = End Time 17:00
A2 = break lunch 12:00
B2 = back from lunch 13:00

Task parameters

A5 = start date 01/03/10 (entered manually)
B5 = start time 10:00 (entered manually)
C5 = duration 02:00 (hrs entered manually)
D5 = "end date" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
E5 = "end time" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)

the next line should be filled in automaitically according to the hours needed and the previous end date & time

A6 = "start date" >>> (after line 5: to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
B6 = "start time" (after line 5: to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
C6 = duration 14:00 (entered manually)
D6 = "end date" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
E6 = "end time" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)

and so on for every new line down.

Auto Date Insert
if I add data into C2 then the current date will appear in A2. I also don't want the date to change every time the project is opened.


If I enter $32,500 into C2 - The current date (4-Dec) would appear in A2.

then if I close excel and I open it tomorrow, A2 would still read as 4-Dec, while if I enter $23.52 into C3, the current date (5-Dec) would appear in A3.

- would need to be able to enter multiple entries on one day as well.

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.

Then if cell C2 contains the number "4" and cell C5 contains the number "7", row C will turn blue. This is just an example. In this example, I'd like a formula all the way down column's 2 and 5, but only the rows would change color (not columns) according to their information.

Key Project

12 A
1 B
123 C
12 D
12 E
123 F
1 G

So basically vba code that will produce a pop up and ask for a key then after the key is entered it will display rows that have an equal key in column A and hide all other rows.

Fromt he above ex. if "12" was entered the spreadsheet would show:

12 A
12 D
12 E
