Blank Date Cell Being Treated By Default As January

May 24, 2006

I need a formula for identifying the last cell, of every third cell, that has an numeric entry, of a row. For example, in a range of (F7:V7), I need a formula that examines F7,I7,L7,O7...., and displays the last cell that has a numeric entry, while ignoring the other cells, ie G7, H7, J7, etc.

Display 'Date' Cell As Blank Instead Of Default Year 1900

Nov 19, 2009

Three columns.

A - Date last checked
B - Due Date
C - Actual Date checked

Currently column B is formatted to Date and simply has =A+84 and will display a date 3 months in future. However if there is no date in column A, then column B displays a default 1900 date.. Is there a way of making this blank if there is no date in col A?

Start Or End Date Through Month Of January

Feb 3, 2014

I have about 80,000 dates. What I need to do is to place an x by the date if it falls inbetween January. For example, I have start Date in A1 and End date in B1. If the start date was 10/20/2013 and the end date was 6/11/2014 then that woub give me an "x" because it went through January. If the start date was 11/23/2013 and the end date was 1/1/2014 that would give me an "x" because it fell in January but if I had 8/4/2013 as a start date and 12/29/2013 then that would be blank. Hope that I made myself clear enough.

Auto Show Date For 1st Monday In January

Nov 23, 2009

I'm trying to find the calculation which will automatically have the date for the first Monday in January to show

e.g. Cell A1 input 2010 Cell A2 would show 04/01/2010

Cell A1 input 2011 Cell A2 would show 03/01/2011

etc

Subtract 1 Year From Date Based On Month (January)

Jan 4, 2014

How I can subtract a year when I formulate based on if the current month is January.

Such as Current month = January 2014, I would require the cell to populate December 2013, any other month would return the current year value.

I have currently tried { =DATE(YEAR(A3)-1,MONTH(A3),DAY(A3)) } whereas cell A3 uses NOW() function formatted to MMMM, but it changes for every month.

Empty Cell Is Treated Like 0

Jun 21, 2007

for some reason when Im creating a empty loop to go down a range of cells and check if that value = the value in a array. However even on the empty cells it treats it like it means 0.

If ActiveCell.Offset(j, 0).Value = directory1(2, 90) Then
MsgBox "why"
End If

with this code, i get a msg even though the cell is empty, but the integer directory1 array is 0 . Should I run a loop and fill directory1 with a different number?

Convert Sunday 8 January To Sunday 9 January Using Formula

Nov 17, 2012

I am trying to update a spreadsheet for 2012 to 2013 and want to use a formula to change SUNDAY 8 January to Sunday 9 January and so on for rest of year.

Set Date In Table Cell To Be Date In Another Cell Plus 30 But Leave Blank If Other Cell Is Blank

Nov 19, 2013

I have made a table which contains 2 date columns, Both formatted as date (dd-mmm-yy), the second column is calculated as the first column, + 30, The dates work out fine when adding to a date in the first columns, but from a blank cell it displays 30-Jan-00.

e.g
Started
Finishes

12-Nov-13
12-Dec-13

30-Jan-00

09-Nov-13
09-Dec-13

11-Nov-13
11-Dec-13

Rather than delete the rows with the blanks in the Started column, is there a formula that I can use so that the cells in the "Finishes" column is left blank when the "Started" cells are blank?

The current formula for cells in the "Finished" column is:

=[@Started]+30

Set Default Month And Year In A Cell For Entering Date Fields

Jul 26, 2013

I am entering data for ships arrived every month. There are about 200 records to be entered and for every record there are 4 date fields.

My question is : Is it possible to set default month (for ex = July) and year ( for ex = 2013 ) in these 4 cells so that

If I just type 16 it should be 16/07/2013. Because all my dates will be within that month July 2013.

Date Picker In Form - Default To Today Date

May 16, 2014

I'm trying to get a date picker to open with the current day's date, and am running into some trouble...

I added this line to the Initialize function:

Code:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
DTPicker.Value = Date
End Sub

...and this to a button which opens the form:

Code:
Sub Open_frmPatientData()
frmPatientData.Show
frmPatientData.txtLastName.Value = ""
frmPatientData.txtFirstName.Value = ""
frmPatientData.txtID.Value = ""
frmPatientData.txtDay.Value = DTPicker1.Day
frmPatientData.txtMonth.Value = DTPicker1.Month
frmPatientData.txtYear.Value = DTPicker1.Year
End Sub

and I get a 'Run Time Error 424: Object Required' error on the line frmPatientData.show (in red). If I remove the line from the Initialize event, then everything works fine, but of course the current date isn't shown. What am I doing wrong?

Excel 2010 :: Changing Default Blank Page Settings?

Apr 23, 2012

My office recently upgraded to Office 2010 and we would like (in the accounting department that I work in) to change the default number formating in a blank sheet to Number, 0 Decimals, using seperators, from the current default of general format number.

I have looked for the Book.xltx file to replace but can't see it any where.

If Two Cells Are Blank Return Blank - If One Has Date Subtract Today Date

Apr 24, 2013

Using one spreadsheet with three date columns and two columns counting days.

If there is a value in Resolution date, then Column N is blank
If there is no value in Submit date and Resolution date, then Column N is blank
If there is no value in Resolution date, and there is a value in Submit date, subtract Submit date from todays date to show how many days it has been pending approval

Created on = J4
Submitted on = K4
Resolution Date = L4
Days to Approve = M4 I've got that formula =IF(L4="","",L4-K4)
Days Pending Approval= N4 (cell with formula)

If Resoultion Date L4 has a value, return blank
If Submit on K4 and Resoultion date L4 are blank, return blank
If Resolution date L4 is blank, and Submit on K4 has a value, subtract Todays date from Submit on K4 to show Days Pending Approval

Cell J4______Cell K4______Cell L4__________Cell M4__________Cell N4
Created on___Submit On___Resolution Date___Days to Approve___Days Pending Approval
4/5/13_______blank______Blank____________Blank___________Blank
4/5/13_______4/5/13_____4/7/13___________2_______________Blank

Blanks Cells Treated As Zeros

Oct 21, 2009

i am creating a football prediction sheet, and have a problem where blank cells are treated as zeros.

The enclosed spreadsheet shows the formulas in green working fine, but the blanks are treated as zeros in cells j6, I7 & J7.

Dec 26, 2011

Is there a way to add numbers when you have them in a cell treated as text?

For example, instead of writing the information in each cell by hand, I copy/paste the information to excel, but the format I get is this:

Cell A1: 25-35
Cell A2: 31-30
Cell A3: 2-12
etc.

In the above example, I am treating those cells as text because if I don't do it this way, some information will format it as dates. (For example, cell A3 it would read is 12-FEB (2-12), but it should be 2-12)

I want to add the values 25 + 31 + 2 = 58 and 35 + 30 + 12 = 77

Without using "Text to Columns" tab to separate the numbers in each cell?

Can I Change A Setting Somewhere To Make Close Its Default Blank Workbook When I Open An Existing One

Feb 9, 2007

I have Excel 2002. If I start the program it opens with a blank workbook, called "Book 1".

If I then open an existing workbook, I have two Excel buttons in the Windows taskbar: the one I just opened, and the blank one titled Book 1.

At work I have Excel 2003. The blank "Book 1" is also there when I start the program, but if I then open an existing workbook, the Book 1 goes away. I like this way better.

My question is: Is this just the way versions 2002 vs. 2003 work, or can I change a setting somewhere to make Excel 2002 close its default blank workbook when I open an existing one?

Default Date Value

Jun 5, 2009

How can I set the value of a cell to give the current date when that cell is clicked or given focus. I want A5 to show as blank, nothing there, until I click the cell, or somehow select the cell, and then have it show the the current date. If I want that date I hit tab or enter and it will record it.
If I don't want to record anything i can arrow past it and it will not record anything. If I want to change it I double click or click again(If I'm in the cell already) and I can type over or just put in the date I want.

However If the user records a date in that cell and goes back to that cell do not record the default current date on tab or enter it most be double clicked in order to change it. This is a safety that they don't tab to it and past it and have it changed by mistake. Once a date is recorded they have to double click to change it.
This is not for just one cell but for the range of cells in colum A starting on A5.

Default Inputbox Value Date

May 27, 2013

I made a selection and coloring macro, the filter is based on the inputbox that pops up. What I would like to do here is, that when the box pops up it would have a written date in it, which is the today always. And the filter should select all which is 2 weeks later than current date.

Code:
Sub kethet()
Dim datum As Long
Dim most As String
LRow = Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

[Code] ..........

Default Date Format

Aug 28, 2008

In a new worksheet, I enter the following inputs:
Input # 1: 08/26/08 and see 8/26/2008
Input # 2 (in a different cell): 08/26 and see Aug-26
Input # 3 (in the same cell as #2 because I didn't like the result I saw): 08/26/08 and I still see Aug-26

Question: The desired result I would like to see in all three cases is: 8/26/2008
1) How do I set the default date to automatically assume current year if I merely enter 08/26 ?
2) Why entering 08/26 is such a grievous sin that I should so horribly point Excel in the wrong direction - or at least until I reformat that cell?

System info: Windows XP Pro & Office 2003
Regional Settings: short date format M/d/yyyy

Minimum Date + Blank Cell

Feb 2, 2010

I have a column that indicates the earliest date that a project will start. There is a Project Minimum Date, Activity Dates, Sub Activity Dates and Sub Sub Activity Dates.

When a Sub Sub Activity Date is entered, it goes up to the Sub Activity Date and so on.

I have a formula =SMALL(\$E6:\$E224,COUNTIF(\$E\$6:\$E\$224,0)+1) that will select the earliest date out of the sub sub activities and sub activities but if one of the cells is blank in the sub activity or activity, then a #NUM! error is returned.

Default Date In Userform Calendar

Jan 5, 2010

In the attached file I have put together a userform that contains a drop down calendar in order for users to select relevant dates.

I have two questions:

1 - I've noticed that from creating the userform (04/01/10) the date has remained as this and not updated to the "current date". Is there any way this could be achieved?

2 - Is there any way the code etc. could be manipulated to alter the dates in the Date Entry boxes, based on that entered into the "Rostered Start Date" box.

I.e. If a user was to select 09/12/09 in the "Rostered Start Date" box, the other date boxes would automatically change to that date.

Change Default Date Format

Oct 3, 2006

i am trying to change the date format for the B column.

if you look the format for this column is dd/mm/yyyy, BUT, it is not. the real format should be mm/dd/yyyy.

ex. 08/01/2006 (mm/dd/yyyy) but excel thinks it is dd/mm/yyyy

Graph - When 1st Month Is Not January

Jun 4, 2012

I'm graphing data from November 1994 to present. Since it's such a long time period, I only want to indicate a given year once (1994, 1995, 1996, etc.) with a tick mark every quarter (e.g. 1994 | | | 1995 | | | , etc).

I'm having difficulty doing so since the graph starts in November. The graph right now shows 1994 as a full year and thus the data doesn't correspond with the correct dates.

Produce Blank Cell If Date Is 00/01/1900

May 10, 2010

I have a column of data that requires the cell to be blank if the value is 00/01/1900. The data is linked to another cell. IE: cell E3 is linked to cell \$D\$3 The cell is formatted for dates in the format shown.

Return Earliest Date Without Corresponding Blank Cell

Apr 26, 2008

I have a date range, containing blanks and values. I need a function to show the earliest date that contains a non-blank value. The function should be robust enough that I can sort by date and still show the correct data.

Date ... Value
10/23/2006
10/24/2006
10/25/2006 0.08
10/26/2006 0.10
10/27/2006
10/28/2006
10/29/2006 0.18
10/30/2006 0.20

(A1) 2007/01/01 Returns (B1) January Formula

Aug 14, 2007

column "A1" i have a set date in the format of year / month / day (2007/01/01)

i want to extract from that information the "Month" in Text form e.g from cell A1... cell B1 = January.

i tried "=month(a1)" then custom set the cell to "mmmm" but this seems to display a random month which doesnt co-inside to cell A1.

i require this information to feed a pivot table i am working on and wondered if anybody could help.

just a side note... after this i would be looking for a formula to work out (based upon the month) which Quarter it falls under... then the week (1-5) based on the date within cell "A1" to feed the results for the pivot table. though this is some way off going by my current plight.

Jan 23, 2014

I have a formula in my spreadsheet that shows dates for servicing of products. Column F show's Date Last Serviced and the adjacent column (G) then shows Date Next Service. When there is nothing on the F column's cell then the date that appears on my spreadsheet is 31/12/00. It looks messy and I would rather have a formula to make it so that if the F column is blank, then the adjacent cell in G column should stay blank also.

To automatically calculate the next service due date, I have variants of this formula that creates the dates in G column:

=DATE(YEAR(F4)+1,MONTH(F4),DAY(F4))

I tried adding as an extra part, for example:

=DATE(YEAR(F4)+1,MONTH(F4),DAY(F4))&If(F4 = 0, "", F4)

It always brings back the answer of 366, and does not make the cell blank...
