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?
In the formula =A1&" "&"Statement Value". I would like to show the value of A1 as a Month (Aug) rather than 40056. The formula is in cell J1 and A1 is a link from another sheet formated as a Month. The result would update as the value in A1 get changed.
I have created a time sheet in excel (see attached) that will be part of the larger workbook that will be linked with other sheets to auto fill in most fields. I am wondering if there is a way for an user to enter a Month and a Year at the top of the page and that in turn automatically fills in the days of the month by week.
So in attached sheet there are 5 boxes representing 5 weeks in a month. So if we used May 2014 as an example I would like to know if there is a way that once May 2014 is entered in up to top that. Excel fills in the dates in Week #1 with under Thursday showing 1st, under Friday showing 2nd as on for the entire month...
So as the month go by all user has to do is state the month and year and excel fills in the weekly dates for each day in month.
Attached spreadsheet has the resource names and their date of joinings (Column - F2), now I would like group the date of joinings into Month & Year format. I tried text formula and then converted it back to date format but its giving incorrect results. For ex - Column F2 has 9th Sep -2013, whereas my formula in H2 is showing Sep-2014. Any way to group these dates into months in a simpler way?
Once I have this grouping done, I would like to do a pivot and sort them.
I have a database that I export to excel every month. The export process is built in the database software (ACT!2009). The export opens Excel with the standard Book1.xls file name. All the field columns will be the same every month.
Goal: I need to format the spreadsheet to make it more readable and have been assigned the task of: 1 - Inserting a blank row between each row that contains data and filling in with color. 2 - Resizing the blank row to make it look like a "thick" border. 3 - Auto adjusting the columns to correct size. 4 - The last column contains comments and needs to be wrapped text. 5 - All of this needs to fit on 1 sheet (landscape).
Issues: 1 - Each month there will be a different number of rows. 2 - I know I can create a macro to do this but the macro that I would be creating will be in a saved template or spreadsheet. How could I use a that recorded macro in a spreadsheet that is called Book1.xls?
I have attached 2 spreadsheets. One called Book1.xls which is the raw data after exported and the 2nd spreadsheet called Formatted which is the end result that I am looking for.
I have a list of dates in the format of 23/10/2009 etc. I'm looking to show the adjacent cell as the month e.g October. Each time I try to format the cell as 'mmmm' it shows January, can someone please point me in the right direction.
I need assistance with the following date range scenario: I have a date field where the user enters a date. I want the next field to automatically give the month of that date for example: user enters 01/01/2008 I want the next field to automatically say "JAN" etc.
In one cell the user has to fill in a date, example 20.3.2008 and then in another cell he/she has to choose a month from a list (january-december). I need a macro that checks that the month stated in the date cell is the same as the month selected in the other list cell.
Need to create year to date sales comparing 4 years month by month. Stacked chart (Excel 2010) works OK for the first three months but adding the fourth month changes the chart to 4 series with a monthly axis. To put it another way I need a vertical axis of years and a horizontal axis of $$$ with each months sales of each year stacked on its year.
I m trying to write a formula for my financial model. If anyone can take a stab at a solution. I'm trying to write a formula that will equally distribute revenue either over the next 1 month, 2 month or 3 month period depending on size of the deal.
Details: Sales will fit in 1 of 3 categories. Less than 25k; between 25k & 100k; greater than 100k.
- if under $25K, recognize in next month (month N+ 1) - $25K-100K, recognize in two equal parts in months N + 1 and N + 2 - over $100K, recognize in three equal parts over 3 months N + 1, N + 2, N + 3 ...
I am trying to project the next 12 month-end dates, based on today's date. I can do that using the EOMONTH function ... see exhibit below ... present month, 1 month out, 2 months out, last month. However, this workbook must be sent to many people and many of those folks will not have EOMONTH functionality because that requires the Analysis Toolpak functions to be added in. How can I accomplish this using standard Excel functions?
I need another column, with just the month specified there based on above dates, so that I can manipulate the complete sheet further using a pivot. Some formatting issue isn't allowing me to use month() function, to derive the month of the date mentioned in the cell.
Using Auto-filter is too tedious, since I'd have to do it 12 times to cover each of the month. Tried recording a macro, but that too isn't supporting much, since it gets specific to cells and hence isn't re-usable in another sheet with similar data.
How can I automate the task of extracting just the month from the above column?
=> and for my ms excel has its columns (year,month,date) in this if i input the date that is base in the database range from StartDate TO its EndDate will automatically put the month and year which base also in my database (year,MonthNum)
A1 B1 C1 Year Month Date A2=2014 B2=January C2=01/01/2014
