## Display Dates In A Specific Format

Apr 2, 2008

I'm in the process of setting up an Excel document and I need to be able to have it display dates in a specific format. I need it to express just a month and year such that the month is represented by a letter (A thru L) and the year is expressed as its last two digits such as in the these examples:

May 2012 = E12
Mar 2009 = C09
Nov 2011 = K11 etc.

I want the date to come out in this format regardless of how the user enters it.

## Some Dates In Format Not Being Converted Into Normal Date Format?

May 23, 2014

I have a some dates in a format which are not being converted into the normal date format. So i made this formula to convert it into the normal date format:

=IF(LEN(B218)=10,(MID(B218,4,2)&"/"&LEFT(B218,2)&"/"&RIGHT(B218,4))+0,IF(LEN(B218)=9,(MID(B218,3,2)&"/"&LEFT(B218,1)&"/"&RIGHT(B218,4))+0,IF(LEN(B218)=8,(MID(B218,3,1)&"/"&LEFT(B218,1)&"/"&RIGHT(B218,4))+0,"")))

Formula is working fine except on this type of date "9/9/2013"..i also tried an OR formula with mid but didnt get the desired result.These are the type of dates:

12/10/2013
12/9/2013
9/11/2013
9/9/2013
7/25/2013

## Convert Non-US Dates To US Date Format

Dec 9, 2006

I am parsing a string which contains (European) dates:

"10/08/2005,11/08/2005,12/08/2005,13/08/2005,14/08/2005,".

When broken into individual cells, dates before the 13th of the month are recognised as "American" dates and display as "08/10/2005", "08/11/2005", 08/12/2005" etc. with automatic date format. Dates from the 13th onwards are left in general format as "13/08/2005", "14/08/2005".

I have written a macro that converts each date individually to its correct Excel serial number, but I can't help thinking that there must be a simpler way, and that I cannot be the first to have asked this!

## Non US Date Format For Dates In CSV File

Oct 21, 2007

I am using a CSV that has the date in Column A in the format of DD/MM/YYYY. When I open this CSV using a VBA comand the Format of the Cells in this col are then formated as either Date or General. The general format happends when the date cant be turned into US format and when it can then the date is turned US and displayd as such.

SO
14- Sep = 14/09/2007 as General
10- Sep = 09/10/2007 as Date

Im in Australia so the correct format is DD/MM/YYYY. Microsoft has issued a fix for this using Local:=True in the file open comand which is all good and well as it works unless you have office 2000 when it crashes. What would be the best way of fixing this, so that the Dates are all correct or the col is all the same format?

## Conditionally Format Entire Row For Dates 15 Days Past Today Date?

Jun 11, 2014

I have spent too many hours Googling and trial with mostly error in attempting this. I formatted the very first cell A1 for today's date =TODAY(); this is also dirrectly above the column with all the dates in it. I just want an entire row's contents to turn red if it is 15 days old or older. This =\$A1<TODAY()-15 somewhat works, but it only turns the date cell red, not the whole row. It also makes blank cells turns red, which I would like to remain blank (another formula is needed I imagine).

## Auto Converting Numbers To Date Format?

Dec 20, 2012

I've been having a problem lately with Excel automatically converting all of the cells on my spreadsheet from standard number format to dates. I've created several spreadsheets for calculations and all the cells in the number formats that I wanted. It's been saved and actually reopened and used several times. I opened it this morning and now half of numbers are now converted to dates. I've had this happen several times on several different spreadsheets. Why is this happening? Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change?

## Cell Format: Only Numbers (no Date) With Any Amount Of Decimals

Sep 8, 2009

I need a cell to restrict the input:
-Only numbers are allowed.
-No date posible.
-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

## Dates - Show Month Only, And Actually Be The Month Only (not Just Format The Date)

Jul 28, 2008

I have a range of dates from 2003 to 2012. I formatted them to the 'Mar-01' option, but when I want to pivot on the month, Excel still reads them as the date - example 3/25/2008, 3/28/2008...and so my pivot table has multiple columns for all of the dates present in that month.

How do I truly format my dates so that excel reads them as the month only so that I can then pivot and show 12 columns (months) per year?

## Conditional Format Dates In A Calender When Matches Dates In A List

May 14, 2009

Hi Guys, This has been bugging me for a bit now and I just can't sus it...

I have a sample perpetual calender that I have been modifying to fit my own purpose. The calender part works fine.

I have beside that a column for holidays, etc and then a another column for other events.

When I put the date in the holiday or events columns I would like the date to be highlighted in the calender above (different colour depending on which column it came from).

The formula I have been playing with (no success) is:

=MATCH(DATE(\$R\$2,1,C8),\$I\$41:\$I\$65,0) - This is the Formula for the 1st column of dates.

The 2nd formula is similar, just changes the column it tries to draw the MATCH(DATE.... from...

Although this formula works fine on the sample spreadsheet. When I enter the formula on my sheet, it doesn't seem to work...

I have attached the spread sheet that I am working on.

## Excel 2007 :: Date Filtering - Change Date Format Supplied By Date Picker

Apr 24, 2012

I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.

I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).

When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)

So my questions are:

1. Is this due to the formatting?

2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
