I need to change a whole column of dates shown as “dd.mm.yyyy” to “dd/mm/yyyy”. I know the answer must be quite easy but it’s been bugging me for some time. Even after sorting the cells, it only sorts using the first two digits, totally ignoring the rest. IE, it sorts 01.07.2009 before 15.05.2009, also before 03.02.2008.
I finally finished programming the userform that I've been working on for about a week and started to populate the database with info (dates, names, TRUE/FALSE etc etc).
Then all of a sudden I notice that as I switch between "records", one of the dates gets a life of its own - it changes from dd/mm/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy as I select it. When I jump onto another record and select that previous record again, the format changes from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy.
This happens with ALL dates where the days and months are =< 12.
I thought I'd apply formatting to the text box to stop that happening with the code below:
I use MS Excel 2007. When I type in date as 2/3/2009, it gets typed as 3/2/2009 i.e. DD/MM/YYYY to MM/DD/YYYY. Attached is file for your information. I have even formatted the Cells in that particular column to Date Format under British (UK) DD/MM/YYYY. I want dates in DD/MM/YYYY format only.
I have the macro below which opens csv files stored in a user selected folder and processes them changing the date format in column D from DD/MM/YYYY to text stored as YYYY-MM-DD.
For most of the dates the code works without issue, but for some (those with a month <12 possibly) it transposes the MM and DD incorrectly.
I understand that when opening the CSV's in excel it automatically converts the dates to DD/MM/YYYY, so I'm actually opening in wordpad which displays as YYYY-MM-DD, with only a portion being incorrect.
I've attached a couple of sample files (pre and post conversion).
I have a file that I want to change the format for my date field. Currently the cells are in general format. How can I put them into a date format. Example the first one is 20070328, how can I make this 03/08/2007?
I have a list with several thousand dates listed like:
19931014 19900724 19910701 19911209
That is, yyyymmdd.
I would like to list it as yymm only. Is there a way to convert it in Excel? I have for a long time been copying and pasting in to Word then doing a search and replace of the first and last two digits, which results in the yymm format I am looking for. A better way would be nice.
I have worksheet of data that I need to sort by year then month. Currently when I try to sort the data by data excel sorts by the month then year. how to reverse this so the dates are sorted by year then month?
Is there a way to lock the date format as MM/DD/YYYY. I'm using the excel file as data file but one of the softwares fails to run this excel-based data file due to date format since the date format has to be in numeric format.
1/12/2013 changes to 12-Jan while processing? How to lock this format?
In MS-Excel 2007 dates seem to be limited to YYYY/MM/DD style, which I imagine there is a way to alter it into MM/DD/YYYY. I looked into MS Help, and a google search, and either I was using wrong keywords, or not, but I couldn't find anything to simply change date arrangement. If I am being unclear, I am talking about the function '=DATE(YYYY/MM/DD)' is what I want to change.
After I get that fixed, I need there to be a function to reproduce a 3-day work week (Mon, Tue, and Thur). e.g.:
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select todayâ€™s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I have Excel 2000, recently when I format a cell to display mm/dd/yyyy and enter mm/dd/yy, it is displaying dd/mm/yyyy. Or it starts out correctly and during a future opening of file it displays incorrectly.
I'm currently trying to do some error checking on a cell where the user has to enter the exact date format as "dd/mm/yyyy". I have been using isDate to check if its a date and not text and then using the below function to check the exact format:
I have txtboxes in which I write date in format dd/mm/yyyy but if I want to put date in cell correctly from this textbox in need to declare event on exit -change format to mm/dd/yyyy and then it puts date in desired format which is dd/mm/yyyy and my regional settings are English(uk)
Is there a way to put any date format in textbox and in cell there will always be format dd/mm/yyyy or at least if date is entered in format dd/mm/yyyy that also in cell the same format is putted
I have delivery date (C) and wenn has been delivered (D= Start, E=End) sometimes Delivery End (E) is on day after Delivery Start but in my chart you can't see it, what I try to do is to display if Delivery End is not on same day as Delivery Start, so I need to display Delivery Start as negative value (below 0) but my chart goes from 00:00:00 to like 04:48:00 next day.
in Excel workbook: Delivery Start - Green Delivery End - Blue
