Date Field Is STILL Not A Number


I want column S to show today's date if any cell is modified within that row.


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Cells(Target.Row, 19).Value = Int(Date)

End Sub
and it works, I get today's date in that row. But when I do a test on the date, (=ISNUMBER) I get false which means I can't check that date with a macro.

Formatting A Number Field To Hold A Specific Number Of Digits
I wrote an excel program in Excel'03 for a dental office to manage state assistance patients and one of the table columns is the state assistance number. The problem is that the program defaults to a number format when it is entered instead of a text format, which is what I want. The issue is that state assistance numbers are always 8 digits and when it defaults to a number field the program drops the required preceeding zeros.

For example the number 00123456 will sometimes show up as 123456, which is wrong. It's like sometimes it will show up right and other times it gets a butterfly in its brain and deletes those zeros irritating the receptionist here. So, how do I get the table to either stay in text format or set up a number format that keeps the preceeding zeros?

Retain Calculated Field Number Formatting
I use pivot tables extensively in my job. I have several spreadsheets that feed from acess database tables to build pivot tables. Besides the fields imported from Acess, I also create calculated fields. The problem is, for both the calculated fields and the imported fields, the number formatting does not stick. I know how to go to field settings, then to number, and change the customized format. The problem is, once I take that field out of the pivot table and bring another one with a different format (say, bring a field with currency format and take away one field with a percentage format) and then bring the original field back to the privot table, the number format is gone.

This is really annoying since I work with dozens of fields, and it takes time to change the number settings every time I change fields on the pivot table, and the number of decimal places, etc. I stress that I know how to change the number formatting on fields, it's just that it excel does not remember it afterwards.

I thought that maybe the formulas in excel might allow one to include the formating, but I have not been able to find if this is possible, and if so, how to do it. So, for example, the following formula for a calculated field:

=IF(ISERROR(Contribution/'Block Hours'), "0", (Contribution/'Block Hours'))

would be nice if the formula itself could include the number formating. I tried including something like , 0.00% at the end, but it does not work.

Change Data Based On Date Field
I have a file, a portion is attached, where I want to paste the value of the formula (in this case, just that of the external data) once it has grabbed the data from an external source.

If the first time I open the file is Jan 15, I want it to grab the data in columns C, E and G from Jan 1 to Jan 14 and paste each cell's value in the same cell. Any data on Jan 15 or past Jan 15, I don't want the value (hasn't been collected yet).

If I open the file again on Jan 18, I need the data from Jan 15 to Jan 17.

I have this macro which works well for grabbing the data and pasting the value.

User Form Field Inserts Wrong Date Format
I have cobbled together (borrowing from examples I have found online because I don't know VBA) a form which inserts a date into a spreadsheet.

The trouble I have is that this date field is in USA date format and I need UK.

If I enter 03/01/2009 into the form, it appears in the spreadsheet as 01/03/2009. I have formatted these cells to display the month only and because of the way it was entered, the next column displays MAR instead of JAN.

Can I validate the input value in a form?

Formula Date Result Showing Number Not Date
I’m trying to resolve this issue and would appreciate some help.

Scenario
I have a tracking sheet that tracks development of work to be completed by individuals.
I have a due date column that shows when the work should be completed.
Once the work has been completed, the user enters his completion date.

I have a formula that provides an overdue warning (Completion date – today’s date) and some conditional formatting.

Problem
When I copy the formula through all the cells in the column I get a number (example 39504) and this changes everyday.

How can I eliminate this being shown as it throws out my average development day calculation?

Number And Date Format
In Excel is there are way to format a cell automatically dependent on the value in another cell? Specifically, if the user selects "410" from a list in cell O9 and enters numeric characters into cell K6 the format of cell K6 is a whole number. However, if the user selects any other number from the list in cell O9 and enters numeric characters into cell K6 the format of cell K6 is now in dollars. I tried using custom in Excel, which I really would like have it in, with no sucess. I am now thinking the only way to accomplish this task is by VBA code. I am ok with formulas; VBA is a different story.

Converting A Number To A Date
I have a column of numbers that are currently text, but they actually represent a date.

I had a column of dates, but needed to convert them into a "week number", so used this formula: =INT((A2-1)/7)

It produced a week number for each date, and produced results like 5594, 5595, etc.

I now need to "reverse" this, and take these numbers (5594, 5595...) and convert them back to actual dates.

Number Formats For Date
I have a simple piece of code that gets a date from the user via inputbox in the format dd/mm/yyyy. That date is then put into a cell (e.g. B1), and the cells to its right get given something like "=B1+2", "=C1+5" etc so that they will all show a date a few days further down the track. (Much more complicated than that but this is the basic idea)

The entire row is then formatted "ddd dd mmm yyyy" with the intention of every column getting a header like "Wed 27 Jan 2010". This works perfectly for every column EXCEPT B which shows the the string "27/01/2010" it was given from the inputbox.

Right clicking --> Format Cells shows every cell in the row has the exact same 'Custom' format, and the 'Sample' at the top looks correct for every cell except B1.

BEFORE the macro runs and formats all the cells, but AFTER they have been given their formulas, they all display something along the lines of '40021', '40023' which I assume is the number of days since Jan 01 1900 or the like - proving that THEY knew the value in B1 was a date, so why doesnt B1 itself know?

Counting Number Of Occurrences Of A Date
I am running Excel 2007 at work in compatibility mode. My company is in the process of switching to Excel 2007, but not everyone has it, so I save my files in Excel 97-2003 format, so they can be viewed by everyone.

Problem:
I am trying to count the number of occurrences of "dates" between a starting date and an ending date. (e.g., cells B16:B1000 contain dates when a test at work was performed. I want to count all tests that occurred between 12/30/2007 and 1/9/2007.) Please note that the dates cross the new year

More Info:
I have searched this board, found a similar post, and tried the different formulas listed but get a result of "0" (zero). If I try the same formulas at home using Excel 2000, they work. The formula types I've tried include regular and array styles I am led to believe that this is either an Excel 2007 bug (bug??? - Nah, not from Microsoft!), or one of the cute changes between the new and old versions that I keep running across. The last possibility is that I am doing something wrong, which a smart betting man wouldn't rule out either!
