I'm trying to convert a number from word to a number in excel. Example: 10-12 input in word to a cell in excel. Unfortunately it treats it as a date an gives me 39002. I want to be able to use both numbers and add them together to get -2 not 39002. How to format the excel spreadsheets in order to complete this calculation.

I have two sets of data that I need which is obtained from one source.

Basically, the stats I am working with in excel are Processing Time (minutes/seconds) and Volume Per Hour. I desperately need a formula that will allow me to convert the processing time into Volume per hour.

Example: Average Handle Time, 7min 7 seconds = x per hour. If it was just 7 minutes flat I could simply divide that into 60. I also can't make it 7.7 and divide that because 7.7 doesn't equal 7m7s.

Does anyone have any thoughts on a way to do this? I found a conversion chart online that allowed me to do this work manually 'Conversion Chart: Fraction of an Hour to Minutes', but I haven't determined a way to make a formula out of this.

I am trying to convert numbers from three cells into a date in one cell. I tried using the =DATE function, but it did not work. In A1, B1, C1, I have 1, 15, 2002. I would like cell D1 to take the info from the preceeding three cells and display "January 15, 2002"

Presently, I have A1...C1 formatted for "General." D1 is formatted for "Date." Yet I get the answer "August 23, 1907" (or 2792 as 'General').

I have a spreadsheet which I automatically generate using VBA. One of the columns lists account numbers. After the macro is complete, the account numbers are non-numeric and left justified. However if I select one of the account numbers by clicking on its cell, and then edit the account number in the formula window, it changes the cells property to numeric and right-justifies the cell.

I have come across an issue and I am not sure what the best way is to achieve my goal or if it's even possible. We are importing dates that are in IBM DB2 Date format. Example: the date is imported as 1060318(C/YY/MM/DD), which is is actually 2006 March 18th. I would like to convert 1060318 to something that Excel can format into March 18th 2006.

Is there an alternate to this? The selection is every alternate cell starting M3, O3 & so on.

Also, All of the above reference columns have date stored in "2002 Aug 02" format. Is there a quick way of selecting the columns automatically & converting it to DD-MMM-YY?

I tried various methods but nothing works unless I manually enter the date. I am looking for an easy way because I have 100's of sheets to fix with 30+ columns. It will be a big and tedious job if I try to create a separate column beside each and then convert using a formula.

Sheet1 (Also named "TicketNames") and Sheet 2 ("Day1"). On TicketNames I have 4 Columns the first 3 columns with about 5 names per columns. Each list of five are given a specific Name ("One","Two","Three"). The last column is just a list for Day1 dropdown menu. (3 names, "One", "Two", "Three").

On Day1, I have a validation list on A1 which will allow the user to select either ("One, Two or Three").

On B1, another dropdown menu, but it will only show the items related to the selection they made on A1.

My problem is that on A1, instead of having "One" show up, I want it to say "$1" for One dollar. But because it is a number not a text it won't allow me to use a validation list using this.

I'm trying to make a table of the total amount of a liquid used throughout the day. Here is what I am trying to do: In cell D4, I want to be able to enter something similar to the following: 3cup+2bottle+1liter

and by doing so, Excel can automatically recognize that 1cup is 8oz, 1bottle is 17oz, and 1liter is 34 oz because of the reference chart provided on the side. Also, it would be able to notice the 3, 2, and 1 amounts so it would multiply accordingly so it would know to do this: (3*8)+(2*17)+(1*34)

and then put the calculated amount in the cell. The correct answer should be 92oz. Is there a way for Excel to recognize the conversions (i.e. whenever it sees 'cup' it will multiply by 8) and multiplication factors (i.e. 3, 2, 1)?Is there a formula I can enter that I can just "drag" down to the upcoming days in column D?

I know I can just do something like this: (3*G4)+(2*G5)+(1*G6).

In the attached sheet, one macro is developed which is not working properly. My req is to convert date from dd-mon-yyyy to yyyy/mm/dd format. (23-jan-2010--> 2010/01/23)

If incomplete date is there, then hyphen should place the gap i.e.

For date like APR-2014------> Output should be 2014/04/-- For date like 1998 -----> Output should be 1998/--/--

The below macro works only for row number 11, 15 and 16.

I have a question about conversion of a text format into date format.

2 computers, the first windows vista, the second Windows 8, both Excel 2007.

The purpose is to calculate the difference between 2 dates with hour:minutes:seconds, like for example: 18/12/2012 19:20:00 and 18/12/2012 19:23:03.

So in this example the result should be 00:03:03.

Both dates are formatted with 'personalized' : dd/mm/yyyy hh/mm.

In the first computer everything works like it should, but in the second it is apparently impossible to transform the first of those date h:m:s which is originally in a text format into a date format. I tried all the methods which i found to transform a text date format into a date , like multiplication with 1, Datevalue and others, but nothing seems to work, the result is always "#Value".

I need this: 38842.8287152778 to be converted into 05052006_075321PM. This is the date for May 5th 2006 @ 7:53:21 pm in VBA. How do i get there from 38842.8287152778?

How to assign a variable of type Long to the below code.

1) Dim searchField as LOng ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200=""" & searchField & """,$C$2:C$200))"

2) ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200= searchField,$C$2:C$200))" 1) code failed because I want the variable searchField to have a data type of LONG.

2) code failed because it seems like excel thought the search criteria is of same searchField.

How to convert date to general format and store it in a variable of data type Long. I.E if I convert 3/15/2008(data type of Date) to data type of General, it should be 39522. What is the VBA code for doing this conversion?

I have a list of ID# (Col A) and dates (Col B). The ID # of reference is Col (F) and today's date (Col G). I need to count how many future dates there are in the list (Col B) that are unique and in the future from today's date.

I'm still fairly new to all these formulas and functions which is why I'm not attempting this in VBA.

I've attached an example work book and I would like the result in H2.

I am trying to get the results of the number of days between today and a future date. I am using ="cell containing futuredate"-today() and it gets me the correct number of days. The problem comes in when I have yet to populate the future dates. I am getting -39991 (numeric value between today and jan 01 01) and because I am also using conditional formatting this is even more of a problem. Is there a way get excel to display nothing if it is a negative number? or to give a specified resut if the number becomes negative such as Expired or something of that nature?

I need a formula that will calculate the number of days from a date entered into cell A1 to today's date. Whether it's before or after todays date. Example:

I have two columns of dates, leave start and end dates (when people start leave i.e. annual leave). Would need to introduce column(s) to calculate how many days fell within the month including the end date and excludes weekends.

For example, if the staff on leave from 31st March to 6 April, i need to show that the number of leave taken as 1 day in March and 4 days in April.

I'm trying to combine the hours that a employee worked on a single date, with one of multiple time periods that exist for that employee.

I have two sets of data. Set 1 (hours) Employee number, date, hours 12345, 1-2-2014, 6 12345, 1-3-2014, 8 12345, 1-10-2014, 8

Set 2 (periods) Employee number, start date, end date 12345, 1-1-2014, 4-1-2014 12345, 6-1-2014, 1-2-2014

What I'd like to do is to add the start and end date of Set 2 to Set 1 for every row in Set 1

In above example the result should be like this. 12345, 1-2-2014, 6, 1-1-2014, 4-1-2014 12345, 1-2-2014, 8, 1-1-2014, 4-1-2014 12345, 1-10-2014, 8, 6-1-2014, 1-2-2014

is it possible to display the week number of todays date (today()) from a physically entered start date (which would obviously be week one), the start date would be november 4th 2013.

I have a column of figures in a file sent to me recently which are dates but for some reason have been reversed eg 20140321. This is 21st march 2014. However I have tried formatting the number as a date (as we would normally see it in UK eg 21/03/14 or similar) and I cannot get Excel to recognise it as a date - I just get a long row of asterisks. How do I get a recognisable date sequence?

I want to get a return value of date in column C whereas column A represent a date and column B represent a number. Simplest formula in excel is Column C (Feb 26, 2014)= Column A (Feb 21, 2014) + Column B (5). I want it to have in macro code.
