I want a report header to be similar to: REPORT AS OF 2/23/10. If I use the TODAY() function by itself, I get the date; 2/23/10. But when I concatenate it with the text "REPORT AS OF " & TODAY()" I get REPORT AS OF 40232". How do I preserve the date format when I concatenate it with text?
Looking for a little help with the following formula =CONCATENATE("August 07 -",TODAY()," Evening Instructor") After entering this formula today is displayed as a serial number. I'd like it to display as current month/current day/current year (11/28/08)
In a single cell, I want to say "Report Complete as of" and then the current date. Is there a way to use & the TODAY function that will return TODAY as a date in conjunction with the text? I keep getting "Report Complete as of 39743" instead of "Report Complete as of 10/22/08", for example, and I can't seem to convert the numbers to a date.
I need to find a way to take the TODAY() function and and split the individual digits out and recombine them to a text cell, i have tried using the MID function but it returns the serial rather than the actual number, e.g
today() 02/01/2009 needs to be shown as 020108 (this needs to be text rather than a number) as it is included within an INDIRECT formula.
I am using Row 3 as a my template to insert a row for every new line of data i enter. I have a macro that copies the format and formula on this template row to insert at the end every time. The problem is on ROW 3 Cell F i am using a Today() function and everytime i insert a row the date is populated. But the next day the date automatically update. In my search on this forum, i found this macro to supposedly lock in the dates, but i doesn't work.
VBA: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Application.EnableEvents = False If Not Intersect(Range("F2:F10000"), Target) Is Nothing Then storage = Target.Value Target.Value = Format(storage, "dd/mm/yy") End If Application.EnableEvents = True End Sub
I have a column, where i want to calculate the difference between today and another date/or viceversa. The problem is, that in the first two cells, it calculates it well, but then, it shows #VALUE and when I press to see the "calculations steps" , it shows "29/09/2009"-40049. It turns the today function into a number. Why?
I am trying to create a formula that will count days since an incident. Column A will have each day of the year in it Column 2, I would like to have 0 in it for each day In the event of an incident, I will replace the 0 with a 1 - but this should only happen on the date, rather than be maintained daily, if you take my point. I would like it to return a value based on todays date, counting the days in between today, and the last 1 entered. It is to cover the whole year.
I have a problem with the today Function. It appears that it changes each day. But that isn't what I want! I'd like to have a funtion that puts the current Date in a field when Data is being added in the Row and then having this date static the next day. Here is what I had so far but I have no clue to make the date static:
in this case it checks for information in field C10 and D10 and if there is information it will add a Date like 2006-03-22. But new day the field will change to 2006-03-23 and that is not what i want. I want it to stay the same when data is put in and the date is being presented.
I'm starting a project where Excel will be used as the main UI for defining a table of data. I'm expecting to define a "template" - xlt i guess - that users can open and save as an xls, without over-writing the template. Users will populate the spreadsheet with a lot of help from user defined functions. I'm just getting started and would like to populate a particular cell with the current date, but only the first time the sheet is opened. I tried checking whether a cell was empty before assigning a value to it, of course this meant recursion!
Also: It might be nice to use the Today() function inside a UDF, but TODAY isn't a member of Application.WorksheetFunction - is there no way to reference TODAY() from within a UDF?
I would like to use a function or a button to put today's date in documents. The only function I found is "today" but it changes every day. I would like to put, lets say 17-11-13 and still have the same date tomorrow and not 18-11-13.
I have a formula in a cell that counts down the days of the month each day using the today function...that part works perfect...But I have some conditional formatting that highlights the row when their is only 5 days left. Basically the row stays highlighted yellow for anything >=0 ="0",$BJ3
I have a seemingly simple dilemna and wonder if there is a solution... I am not a PRO user, but can get by with my limited knowledge of excel.
I create invoices for my business and in the invoice I use the "TODAY()" function to automatically insert the current day when I created the invoice.
Now when I need to go back and look at the old invoice or print it again it shows the CURRENT date, not the original date when it was saved. Is there a way to view and/or print out a file while keeping the original date intact or is there a better way to format a date to avoid this happening in the future.
I have since eliminated the function and just type in the date to avoid this but I have about 100 invoices that are saved that I may need to view their "original" dates on.
I have data in cells A1:A50. I want to combine all of them into cell A51. I know that I can achieve that by using =concatenate(A1,A2,A3,A4,........,A50) or =A1&A2&A3&A4&......&A50 but it would be very tiring to click on each cell. Just imagine if the data in cells A1:A1000? function that work like say =combine(A1:A50).
Trying to do Vlookup with If but dont know how , I can do the concatenate function and then Vlookup as in Sheet 3 but that is too much of load to deliver in quick time specially i have pull data in dynamic and continuous update.
I am trying to concatenate the text of a few cells in a specific worksheet. I'm not wanting to use the STRING & STRING type code because I already had a Concatenate formula nested with an index formula and needed to have this formula copied to a certain RANGE, Where the RANGE was specified by a Variable. T
he Code below does what I need if the CONCATENATE/INDEX formula is in the cell that im copying already. (BELOW) The Formula in the cell, for example, on row 19 of worksheet "COMMISSION", that needs to be copied and incremented down the VARIABLE RANGE is
VB: Dim iInput_Rows As Integer iInput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D3").Value Dim iOutput_Rows As Integer iOutput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D1").Value Dim iAnalog_Rows As Integer
My problem is when I use the following code to insert that concatenate/index formula, through vba, then I get errors because it evidently doesnt like the " " for the space i needed between texts. (The Formula is concatenating text in those cells but every other Row) Can I do this in VBA?
I have a time in cell C10 in hh:mm format, in cell D10 I want to add the text "DFL" in front of the time, remove the ":" and add "HRS." at the end of it. For example "DFL0715HRS." I have been able to get the following formula to work:
However sometimes it may not be a time, it could also be "Rest Day" in cell C10, if it says "Rest Day" I need it to add the text "DFL" in front as before and then change "Rest Day" to "RDFLEXI." For example "DFLRDFLEXI." I have been able to get the following formula to work but only if it is "Rest Day", if it is a time such as 07:15 it doesn't work.
It shows "DFL07157R0.": =CONCATENATE("DFL",IF(C10="Rest Day","RDFLEXI.",(TEXT(C10,"hhmm"&"HRS."))))
I think it is trying to continue doing something with the text function
I have a worksheet with 10000 plus entries in ten columns From K to T. I wish to have a macro with Concatenate function to merge certain Columns from these ten columns, in one column with help of input boxes which may ask inputs, about range (from and to ), and number of digits to concatenate in the required column. I use Excel 2003 XP in work but an example is 2007 attached.
I need to create unique IDs for all of my stock. I would like to use the concatenate function so that the first letter of each products type is taken and then joined onto a unique number. Im not sure how I will do this I was thinking that the formula looks at the largest value and adds 1 so that there are no duplicate numbers added to the first letter of the product type. E.g. the first mother board added will be "M1" the next will be "M2" as the formula has found that M1 exists and has added 1.
I am trying to join text in two different cells using concatenate function / & operator In the combined cell I want the text from second cell to appear in Bold while the text from first cell should continue to remain in normal font. Is there any way i could achieve this?
