whenever i start a new worksheet in the workbook, it's format is set as custom format. At the same time, whatever pivot table draw will be in this custom format. Is there anyway i can change the default format back to general? There is also a sample attached...The actual db is kinda more complex than that but there is a limitation of 40kb so...Is there any other preferred website to upload files?
I have a large project with many worksheets. Somehow I managed to change the default number format for new worksheets to Time. So... when I create a new worksheet and paste stuff into it I get everything in AM/PM. How can I change the default number format to Number?
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 Would someone please explain: 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
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 two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
I have txtboxes in which I write date in format dd/mm/yyyy but if I want to put date in cell correctly from this textbox in need to declare event on exit -change format to mm/dd/yyyy and then it puts date in desired format which is dd/mm/yyyy and my regional settings are English(uk)
Is there a way to put any date format in textbox and in cell there will always be format dd/mm/yyyy or at least if date is entered in format dd/mm/yyyy that also in cell the same format is putted
when I do Format Cell, the date formats offered use US formats like 20/02/1999. Why does it do this, and can I fix it? I suspect that this the root of the following problem.
I have a button on a userform to enter today's date into a textbox. It enters it as 05/27/2009. The wrong format. I save the data to the worksheet, then use the data form to go to the next record, then back. The date then appears in the correct format as 27/05/2009.
Another related problem: if I enter a date manually into the textbox on the dataform, such as 2/3/2008, it interprets it as Feb. 3, and when I save it to the worksheet, and then use the form to view it, it comes out as 3/2/2008.
I am facing a problem with number formats. I have downloaded some data from a database. In the data, there are some date columns in MM/DD/YYYY format. In a seperate workbook, I have copied that data as values.
Now when I am trying to change the formats of the dates to d-mmm-yy, they don't change. The formats are not not changing to any other format. I even tried changing the formats using VBA, but it did not work.
I have a file that I want to change the format for my date field. Currently the cells are in general format. How can I put them into a date format. Example the first one is 20070328, how can I make this 03/08/2007?
I have a column which contains User ID's, the user ID is created by our local IT and is composed of three letters and two numbers, my issue is that excel recognizes some of the ID's as dates i.e. Jul-25 when the user ID should be jul25. When I change the column to "Text" then the user ID become numeric... how can I change the date format "Jul-25" to Alphanumeric format as "jul25"?
way the date are shown can be changed by the date format tool, provided the date was entered the correct way. I think we are missing each other. I think the way the date was entered (17.08.07) and converted to (17/08/07) was good. At first it was in text so one wouldnt have known whether it will be taken as yymmdd, ddmmyy, mmddyy etc. well it end up like as 17(yy), 08(mm), 07(dd) instead as 17(dd), 08(mm) and 07(yy). My Q now is is there a way (formula) to swap these orders around...?
I have run a report from one of our databases and it gives me the date in the following format :

i have a column with times of day and need a helper column to show the starting hour. for example, column a1 - 9:53am would like b1 to show 9am or 9. i tried customizing the date format to 'h' only, but when I pivot the table it still shows several 9's
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.
I am unable to change the date format in a column of dates. The cells have values that look like the following: 4/29/2013 8:59:12 AM. I want to change these to YYYY-MM-DD format, but no matter what I try the format will not change.
I am trying to format certain cells to change colors depending on the date and the content of the next field to show due dates.
cell label due date date completed
c5 au5 be5
c6 au6 be6
c7 au7 be7
c8 au8 be8
What I need is for the contents of au5 to be green up until 10 days before the due date, yellow up until 5 days, and red with less than 5 days until the due date. If the date completed is entered into be5, then the contents of au5 should be black.
Is this possible, and if it is, how do I set this up? I tried to use
And choose green formatting (something I found on yahoo answers), but when I enter the date the text is still the original black font.
One of my userform text boxes is for the input of a date. this date is being exported to a defined cell in excel, but in a US format, mm/dd/yyyy. i need this to be exported into excel in UK/Aussie format dd/mm/yyyy as our accounting software is getting confused (i am also).
