I have a spread sheet with a date colume that reads: 2012-06-27-19 I need to have this read like 06/27/2012 but nothing I do is working I have tried to go to the formatting process and backing the hr:mm out and that doesn't work. I really don't want to go line by line to manually correct this issue.. HENCE ... over 2000 lines
Second question: If I have a column that reads 02/15/2012 and another column that reads 3/27/2012 how to a format a 3rd column to make it read total number of days between 1st date and 2nd date?
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.
Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")
I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...
Code: if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##") '.... end if but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...
In D2 I have: =B2 In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:
Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully
But, I need it to be:
1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter
Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.
The idea is that the user selects a job number from combobox1 and then the appropriate column is pulled into each txt box on the form.
At the same time, I'm trying to do the same for the system time as well. Unsurprisingly I have a very similar problem here and use the same code as above. I've tried formatting both date and time txt boxes in the userform, the data transfer code etc etc with no success.
There is also a single space after the end of the date.
Can someone please show me a formula to extract the date from each cell in the column? This is slightly complicated by the fact that the number of days (“D”) could consist of 1, 2, 3 or 4 characters, and the date could also be of variable length (e.g. 1/1/2008 vs 31/05/2008)
My database has 6 fields names and I have created the following code to capture and post data to the database form a userform. It works but I am sure there is a more efficient and elegant way to do this. The two areas I would like advice are: 1. converting the date string to a date. 2. the line of code where I subtract line6 from line4.
I have written some VBA to the best of my ability but it seems clumsy using the FORMAT function. Is there a better of doing this with VBA. I can't seem to find a function in VBA which is the equivalent of the formula function DATE.
Code: Sub ConvertTextToBritStyleDate() ' dd/mm/yyyy (not mm/dd/yyyy) ' Select the cells containing the dates (not the header)
I am trying to display both text and a date in the same line. Currently I have something like ="The Date Is " & A1. where A1 is a cell with a date formatted in a preferred format. However, once I call reference to the cell, excel re-formats it into the serial date, so it displays something like. The Date Is 40220
instead of something like: The Date is 2/11/2010. Does anyone know how to format the number back into a date form? Just going through the format menus and setting it to date does not change it.
I am trying to make a very simple macro but get stuck in de Excel date format. When using the date "=TODAY()" in one cel it is no problem but I want to integrate it in the CONCATENATE function.
I want to create this text "(WG 01-01-2006)" but then with the actual date of that day of course, which can be inserted in de active cell.
Whatever I do, copy, pastespecial, reed text with RIGHT, change format on an temporary cell etc. Excel keeps returning the number in Excel date format counting from 01-01-1900. Nice for calculating but I want the date text!
I've got some data from a unix database that I have been able to import into Excel 2003. I want to use this data in an Access 2003 database but the dates are formatted all wrong. Date comes out like this "FEB08" in Excel.
I want to convert this into a date format that I can use as an actual date when I import this data into Access. I was thinking about doing the conversion in Excel before importing it into Access. If it would be easier to import into Access and then convert
I have run a report from one of our databases and it gives me the date in the following format :
Apr 26, 1983 12:00 AM
When i sort it does it alphabetically - i think the cell is actaully text (general) format - i can't seem to change it to any of the inbuilt date foramts - i would like to sort my spreadhseet by date !
