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 run a report from one of our databases and it gives me the date in the following format :
Apr 26, 1983 12:00 AM
When i sort it does it alphabetically - i think the cell is actaully text (general) format - i can't seem to change it to any of the inbuilt date foramts - i would like to sort my spreadhseet by date !
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 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
In D2 I have: =B2 In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
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 would like to have a single button that changes a range of cells from the USD to EURO to perhaps CAD symbol. Can this operation be performed, such that if I start in dollars, and I click the button once, it shifts by range to EURO (not formulas...just symbol)...and then if I click the same button again, it goes to CAD, and then back to USD with a third click?
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 want to change the look of the text in a cell to be highlighted in some way, preferably bold. Ex. if I put a1 in the cell, it does a VLOOKUP to get the value. Is there a way to have the a1 change to A1 on enter?
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.
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.
