Error In Formatting Of Dates In Excel

Feb 16, 2014

I have an excel sheet which has a column containing data only for the month of January 2014. The date format used is dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm All the data must be something like dd-01-2014. But, the excel sheet is interpeting like it has data for Feb, March, April, June etc...

The data in the sheet is getting miscalculated like it has data for rest of the month also.

Lets take an example of 01-02-2014 09:22:16. Actually its 2nd Jan 2014 but excel sheet misenterpretes as 1st February 2014. 01-04-2014 07:49:51 is being taken as 1st April 2014.

I have tried using text-to-columns - next next date. But still no luck.

There is a huge data which i wanted to work upon but due to this i am unable to.

Excel 2007 :: Formatting A Column For Dates?

Nov 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2007 and am having some trouble formatting a column for dates. I am setting up a template spreadsheet for the company I work for. The template spreadsheet has a sheet for entering the raw data and a sheet for summarizing it. I need new dates that are to be entered to be formatted correctly. I have set up a sample spreadsheet and inputted some sample data which looks like the following:


Now if I format these cells as English(UK) dates with the "" format the data>sort cannot sort these dates from oldest to newest. I can correctly sort them by using "text to columns" however if i do this then it only format's the cells that currently have a date entered into them and not any new date entries.

So in summary: Format cells into a date format does not allow dates to be sorted using the data>sort tool. (I assume that as they cannot be sorted ,a formula that searches for cells with dates before a certain date will not work either) Text to columns does not allow new entries to be formatted in the same way as the cells that had data in them when the text to columns tool was used.

Is there a way to format blank cells so that they will recognize the data inputted as a date?

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Dates Based On Number Of Days That Have Passed?

Nov 22, 2011

I am trying to figure-out how to set up conditional formatting of dates in a column (e.g. Date Submitted) and have these dates, and/or cell, change color as time progresses. I have Excel 2007.

For instance I have an application submitted on 11/20/2011 in a cell. I would like to have the date change color (Yellow) after 30 days have passed.

Then do the same except change to Red after 60 days have passed the date.

I searched the forums and did not find this particular problem. I of course may have missed it too...

My guess was to try "$A$1

Excel 2010 :: Dates As Headers In Table Not Recognized As Dates For Charting?

Nov 8, 2012

I'm trying to make a simple chart, which maps the value of an investment fund over time. I wanted to use the new 'Table' feature within Excel 2010 to format and maintain the formulae within the Table, and the 'Header' for the table contains the date, which is not at regular intervals.

If I opt not to use the Table feature, I can create a line-chart with ease, and Excel recognises that the Dates are indeed dates and plots the graph correctly. The minute I convert over to a Table, the Date headers are no longer recognised as dates, and are instead plotted as if they were text, at regular intervals.

I've tried multiplying the Date Headers by 1 to force them back to true Dates, but this still does not work. I've also changed the setting on the horizontal axis to Date axis rather than automatic, but still no joy.

Excel 2007 :: Unable To Convert Text Dates To System Dates

Oct 21, 2011

I am in strange situation where I have a data with Invoice Dates. These dates are in Text. However, when I convert it into reall excel dates. For some reason the dates do not come right. convert my text dates into excel real dates. I did a lot of google search and apply these three methods but all of these gave me strange result I was not expecting. These are the methods I used and the result of each method.

Method 1 : Using Text to Column Wizard (Excel 2007)

I highlighted invoice column and went into text to column wizard. I clikced on Date button, and selected MDY format. Strangely enough, my result was day, month and year i.e. DMY which does not seem right.

Then I press Control ~ on this data as shown in second view.

Inv DateMDY09/22/1122/09/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/2011

control ~ (overview)

Inv DateMDY09/22/114080808/31/114078608/31/114078608/31/114078608/31/1140786

2nd Method - Using formula to convert text date to real dates When I used formula, I get the following result. As you can see, formula is converting text dates into different system dates than the first method.Further strange things is when I take these system dates i.e. 4283 and in 2007 excel format use "Short Date" the same system date gets converted into wrong year as shown in the second view.

Inv DateFormulaFormula Result09/22/11=DATE(MID(B2,7,2),MID(B2,1,2),MID(B2,4,2))428308/31/11=DATE(MID(B3,7,2),MID(B3,1,2),MID(B3,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B4,7,2),MID(B4,1,2),MID(B4,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B5,7,2),MID(B5,1,2),MID(B5,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B6,7,2),MID(B6,1,2),MID(B6,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B7,7,2),MID(B7,1,2),MID(B7,4,2))4261

2nd view - system dates are getting converted into 1911

Inv DateFormulaFormula Result09/22/11428322/09/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/1911

Similarly, I tried other methods or copying blanks etch but none seems to convert text dates into real (system dates).

Dates And Conditional Formatting.

The scenario. Column A has a set (due) date all of the same. Column B is where review dates are typed in. Column C is where the status is, Due = still as yet to be done, but still yet to pass the Due date with no date in Column B (formatted yellow with the text "Due"). Complete = for when a date has been entered in Column B (formatted green with the text "Complete"). Urgent = the review date has passed and with no date in Column B (formatted red with the text "Urgent"). I have tried by editing previous similar formulas but to no avail

Conditional Formatting - Using Dates

May 28, 2009

Im trying to get conditional formatting to look at a completion date in cell A5 and getting cell D5 to change colour depending on the length of time to cell A5. What I would like is for D5 to change to red if there is 4 months or less to the completion date in A5. D5 to change to orange if there is still 4 - 8 months from the completion date A5. D5 to change to green if there is still 8 - 12 months from the completion date A5. Hopefully the formula will also work if cell D6 is looking at completion date in A6 with the same traffic light system and so on.

Conditional Formatting For Dates?

Mar 2, 2014

I have a sheet where K5:K26 contains names of months. I would like to conditionally format that column so that any month that is less than TODAY appears red. So, if that column has a cell value of February, the cell would appear red since we are already in March. I would guess this involves a formula using TODAY, but I can't figure it out myself.

I know how to apply conditional formatting; I just lack the proper formula.

Conditional Formatting And Dates

Oct 23, 2008

I have a list of dates that I want to flag as red if the date passes and the task is not complete.

So I would have 2 columns

Estimated completion date & Completion date.

If the completion date cell is null AND the Estimated completion date has passed then the Estimated completion date turns red (or a red block appears in a new column if that is easier!).

Conditional Formatting For Three Different Dates

Jul 11, 2014

I am trying to use conditional formatting and its not working for me.

If I put the date 1 Jan 2014 in the cell of E2 I need a conditional format that will turn the cell yellow when it is two month from being a year old, so on 1 Nov 2014 it should turn yellow. Then I need it to turn orange when it is one month away from being a year old, so Dec 1 2014 it turns orange. And then when it is over a year old it turns red, So 1 Jan 2015 the cell turns red.

The formatting I have now turns them yellow, orange, and red but at the wrong times, not sure how to fix that.

Formatting Overdue Dates

Jul 4, 2006

I have a spreadsheet where I am tracking tasks. I would like to conditionally format the "Completed" cell red whenever the Due Date has passed to easily identify which tasks are outstangin. And I would like that to happen no matther what date someone opens the spreadsheet. (I think I need to use TODAY() here.) Then once the user enters the actual completed date, the cell would go back to white with black font. Below is a sample:

Due Date Completed
5/8/2006 5/8/2006
5/8/2006 5/8/2006

This seems like it would be easy to figure out, but I've spent days on it and am not thinking clearly any more.

Conditionally Formatting Dates

Dec 12, 2006

I have a workbook (attached) which has two sheets called “Team List” & “Masterfile Data Dump”.

This is the sheet that I want to populate when the data dump is a pasted into the sheet “Masterfile Data Dump”

This sheet is where my data dump will be pasted to, columns A to Q and column R is a formula to work out the FTE

The reason I want the list to auto populate is that it will change week on week and is a time consuming task keep updating it. I want to be able to type a Team Leaders Name into cell F2 and it populate the list of the agents in that persons team Cells F4:G18 (Name & Surname) along with there FTE (full time equivalent) in Cells I4:I18.

The problem I have is I have no idea how to calculate the FTE sum as the data dump can have one to five shift patterns (rows) for one agent (See my example on the “Master file Data Dump” Sheet of Joe Bloggs. /I have tried to use a VLOOKUP which I have used but this will only return the first value or first rows value of that agents name.
