Date Field Is STILL Not A Number

Aug 4, 2009

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.

Date Format Error - General Number Field

Feb 18, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with a column full of dates

I used the formatting wizard to make all dates the format of dd/mm/yyyy but, now, when I put a date in the column it throws up a number '41313' instead of a date, even if I manually input the date in the same format as above.

Also, I have tried to turn cells back into general number fields, but this doesn't appear to be changing it back to a date format..

There are HUNDREDS of dates I might have lost if I can't get them to start showing as dates again!

Auto Populate Field With Date When Other Field Is Selected From Validation List

Jul 4, 2013

In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.

Formatting A Number Field To Hold A Specific Number Of Digits

Feb 12, 2009

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?

How To Come Out With Random Number From A Field That Have Text And Numbers

Nov 7, 2013

I need excluding text from a cell and come out with a random number up to 3 numbers. Please see the attached image;

If you notice in column D there is text and a number that starts with a decimal, for example on the first row is .437 the next row is .215 next row is .63 etc... Is there a way to come out with a random number mixing it up to 3 digits and output those number on column "E"? Im only interested in filtering and coming out with the random number i mentioned .437 .215 .63 etc... not the +/-.010in.

There is no right or wrong number, i just need to come out with random number using up to 3 numbers up.

Maybe for .437 three numbers up could be .440 for the next row .215 maybe a number up .216..etc..

Hope there is a way to do this, my excel file is too long to type a number manually.

Retain Calculated Field Number Formatting

Aug 16, 2006

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.

How To Automatically Update Field Using Date

I'm trying to update an excel document which has a list of employees on it along with their training. Most of the training for individuals needs refreshed in the next year so wanted the table to use the date and perhaps trigger a fill colour change once they are close to needing that training. here's an example

John Smith

Completed 01/05/10
Refresher required 01/05/14

Once we get a month or two before the required date, I would like the fill colour to change to highlight that they refresher training should be organised soon.

Insert 0 At Beginning Of Field Depending On Number Of Characters

Dec 27, 2012

Example below of the data I have. I need to convert dates into DD.MM.YY (8 chars) for SAP. I receive spreadsheets where the date is dd/mm/yy and I use the replace to convert the "/" to ".", then format this column as TEXT. My problem is some of these sheets have hundreds of records and rather than individually scroll through and look for data that requires the "0", is there a way to insert this. I can custom format that it looks as it has the zero, but it is not in the true data.

1.10.12 data should be 01.10.12
11.10.12 this is correct
3.11.12 data should be 03.11.12
3.06.12 data should be 03.06.12 etc

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.
