In my excel I want to use a calender date such as 05/21/09 and automatically add or subtract a specific number of days. For example: 10 days before 05/21/09....
I dont want to have to count back 10 days and manually enter it. Is there a way to have excel calculate and give me the date in my spreadsheet? i.e. automatically calculate (05/12/09)-(10 days)= 5/11/09. its not too hard when its 10 days, but when its -97 days, it can be very annoying.
I have a spreadsheet with due dates in column X. I want to create conditional formatting so that cells turn red when the due date is less than or equal to 30 days away, but turn gray when the due date has passed.
I've accomplished the first step by using the following: =AND($X6
I have a range that contains dates, with some cells within containing text (e.g. "TBC" or "planning will occur wk42"). I have basic rules as below:
- highlight red if older than today - highlight green if today or in the future
The problem I have is that the cells that have text are highlighted green which I don't want. I also don't want to have to go through the range removing conditional formatting from each of those cells each time I copy over new data. Is there a way of telling excel to not use conditional formatting on those cells that contain text so I can manually highlight as I need? Some have text as that is how I receive the data.
there are a multitude of issues with US date formats when you're not in the US but I've run across one that I can't figure out.
I have a source table that has approx 5000 lines on it, everything looks correct and all the dates are in the correct (Australian) format. However when I use it to make a pivot table, any dates that are before the 12/m/yyyy gets changed to the mmddyyyy format in the pivot table only, all the source dates are still correct.
I have a sheet with a date and the number of months on it which will change. I need the sheet to list the dates in a column for each month automatically: e.g. Two cells contain date “jan07” and the period “10” months. The rows A1 to A10 should have jan07…jan16 listed automatically. If I change then change the number of month to 11 I would like the rows A1 to A11 to update automatically.
Basically I have 2 columns each with a list of dates in no particular order (and containing blank cells too), one planned date column and one actual date column.
What I need to do is plot this on a graph, and since the number of dates has no set limit and I dont want to have to plot maybe 100 dates on the x axis, so i want to group them by week before plotting them, i.e. 10 dates for week ending 10th jan, 25 dates for week ending 17th jan etc
I have a pivot table that counts how many of each date occurs, i.e. 10 x 2nd jan, 7x 3rd jan etc etc but it does not split them into weeks.
im sure theres an easyish way of doing it so i can get the 2 lines on the graph for no. of planned dates each week and no. of actual dates each week, i just cant see it.
I want to see if the people on list one are on list two. I need to come up with a formula that gives TRUE for each person on list one who is on list two and false for each person on list one who is not on list two. Several caveats: 1) there are people on list one who aren't on list two and vice versa, 2) the people have several defining characteristics which need to be met, and 3) dates are involved.
With respect to point three, TRUE should only appear if the people on list one are on list two and if they were employed by the organization on a specific date (ex: 3/5/1996); in order for the TRUE statement to appear in the G column, the person should not only be on list two but also be employed on a specific date. The specific date should fall within the start and end employment contract.
I have a list of dates in this format (7/20/2013) that go through several months. I would like to make have a formula that takes all of the dates from a specific month out and make a new list of those days. For example, if I have 7/20/2013, 6/28/2013, 8/3/2013, 7/1/2013. I would like to to take only the dates from July and put them in a new list: 7/20/2013, 7/1/2013.
is it possible to have a cell return all matches from a list and have the list of matches reduce as you type, then be able to select one item from the list? this is a typical feature on internet sites, but can it be done in Excel?
I have a file from a database that includes birthdays and anniversaries. These are mainly in US format as far as I can tell, but I am trying to get these all in UK date format but when I try and change any of the formatting half of them don't seem to change.
I have used excel for years. I understand how to format dates. However, lately, after I tell the cell to format it as a date, and then type in a date, it inserts some random date (not the numbers at all that I entered).
I am trying to move the data from sheet1 column A to sheet2 column A while reformatting the data from its current format (dd/mm/yyyy) to format (mm/dd/yyyy). The data from sheet1 is provided to me by a client and is produced daily through their system which they have told me they cannot change the formatting on the reports. When i try to move data from sheet1 to sheet2 and reformat it only half the data formats into the correct date format. does anyone know how to get the data from sheet1 to format and move to sheet2 properly?
I have attached a sample of the raw output of some call records from our telephone switch. My problem with the date data is twofold; first of all it outputs it in mm/dd/yyyy format, or so it appears. But when I try to change the format to mmm/ddd/yy Excel always interprets the 2nd pair of digits as the month instead of the first two. For example,the following 2 calls are from Jan 1st and Jan 2nd respectively;
but excel always treats the 2nd record as Feb 1st. I have read numerous posts from people with similar problems but I can't get any of their solutions to work with my data.
The second problem is that on the 13 of each month the phone switch suddenly stops putting a leading zero in front of the date making the data totally unreadable to Excel apparently. Again, I read a post of a similar problem but can't get their solution to work. My ultimate goal is to reformat the date data so that it is displayed as; ddd mm/dd and leave out the year entirely. Ex. Fri 02/12 as in today...Friday, Feb 12th. I really don't know if the problem is with the data or me at this point.
I am also new to vba (am teaching myself with the help of the guru's on this site!). My problem is to do with dates. I have created a variable in VBA that reads a cell with the value of a date in text format, for example SEP2006. I want to use this value to paste into another excel cell. When I do it actually creates it as a numeric date when I really want to just use it as text, "SEP2006". I have been looking at this for a while and I'm not sure if it's a case of "can't see the wood for the trees". A small example of my code is:
Sub DateValue() Dim dateValue As String Range("D2").Select datevalue=activecell.text Range("a3", [b65536].End(xlUp).offset(0,1))= datevalue End Sub
I have a pivot table and and struggling to group these by month as well as to sort thee in escending order.

I'm trying to make a simple chart, which maps the value of an investment fund over time. I wanted to use the new 'Table' feature within Excel 2010 to format and maintain the formulae within the Table, and the 'Header' for the table contains the date, which is not at regular intervals.
If I opt not to use the Table feature, I can create a line-chart with ease, and Excel recognises that the Dates are indeed dates and plots the graph correctly. The minute I convert over to a Table, the Date headers are no longer recognised as dates, and are instead plotted as if they were text, at regular intervals.
I've tried multiplying the Date Headers by 1 to force them back to true Dates, but this still does not work. I've also changed the setting on the horizontal axis to Date axis rather than automatic, but still no joy.
I am in strange situation where I have a data with Invoice Dates. These dates are in Text. However, when I convert it into reall excel dates. For some reason the dates do not come right. convert my text dates into excel real dates. I did a lot of google search and apply these three methods but all of these gave me strange result I was not expecting. These are the methods I used and the result of each method.
Method 1 : Using Text to Column Wizard (Excel 2007)
I highlighted invoice column and went into text to column wizard. I clikced on Date button, and selected MDY format. Strangely enough, my result was day, month and year i.e. DMY which does not seem right.
Then I press Control ~ on this data as shown in second view.
2nd Method - Using formula to convert text date to real dates When I used formula, I get the following result. As you can see, formula is converting text dates into different system dates than the first method.Further strange things is when I take these system dates i.e. 4283 and in 2007 excel format use "Short Date" the same system date gets converted into wrong year as shown in the second view.
I want to pick a range of dates and find the number of days without sales between those dates. So, a formula that will look to a start date in A1 and an end date in B2, and then count the number of days that did not have sales between. Index/Match/Countif/Dateif I can't seem to make anything work.
I am trying to do conditional formatting to make a cell say something for 3 different scenarios. If K6 > G6, then I need M6 to say "Early." If K6 < G6, then I need M6 to say "Late." If K6 = G6, then I need M6 to say "On Time."
I'm trying to use conditional formulas with dates.
I have a list of employees that will get raises on November 1 of each year. The raise depends on their grade, which increases by one every year on the day and month they were hired.
I'm including my Excel file. For example I have one employee hired on January 16, 2012. As of today, his grade is 3. On Nov 1, 2014 he will still be on grade 3 (he won't advance to grade 4 until January 16, 2015). On Nov 1, 2015 he will be at grade 4 and on Nov 1, 2016 he will be at grade 5. Another employee was hired on October 15, 2013. His grade today is 1. On Nov 1, 2014, he will be on grade 2. What formulas can I put in the yellow cells to do these calculations?
In Column Q, Please drive a formula that shows.... after 7 days of column (M)reminder III these words must appear '' File Pending'' in 'COLUMN Q' and at the same, Indicator column (O) will also become RED.
The scenario. Column A has a set (due) date all of the same. Column B is where review dates are typed in. Column C is where the status is, Due = still as yet to be done, but still yet to pass the Due date with no date in Column B (formatted yellow with the text "Due"). Complete = for when a date has been entered in Column B (formatted green with the text "Complete"). Urgent = the review date has passed and with no date in Column B (formatted red with the text "Urgent"). I have tried by editing previous similar formulas but to no avail
