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?

Excel 2007 :: Data Entered Automatically When Type Certain Things

Aug 2, 2013

I use MS Excel 2007 and I was wondering if it was possible to enter data for certain things once, and have that data copied automatically every time I type the text. For example, if I type Blue Car in a cell and type 4 in the next cell, is there a way I can program Excel to enter that data every time I type Blue Car?

Change Cells Data Is Entered Into Based On Date?

Jul 19, 2014

I own 3 restaurants and I use Excel to track my sales statics. I have to enter certain pieces of data on a daily basis and it can become slightly cumbersome when dealing with the sort of washed out look of Excel spreadsheets. I wanted to write a Windows application that would handle the process for me but my knowledge of programming languages is too limited and I don't really have the time to learn. What I'd like is to have a single page on my workbooks with which I can enter the data in on a field type view, and have it go to the appropriate cell on the "Raw" data sheets in the same workbook. For example:

Let's assume this is the Raw data sheet. I currently enter the data that I need here, and Excel does the rest for me. This gets hard to look at everyday when dealing with hundreds of numbers.

Net Sales
Prior Year Sales
Percent Increase/Decrease


Entering the data here would automatically fill in the data on the Raw sheet, and would know which cells to put the data into based on the date, which would of course be gotten from the =Today() formula.

Excel 2007 :: Auto Lock Cells Once Data Is Entered Not Working

Aug 14, 2014

I have searched and found many examples of code that will lock cells once data has been entered. But for some reason, I cannot get it to work in my workbook. The weird thing is, I have successfully got them to work on blank workbooks. I unlock a range I want people to be able to edit, I protect the workbook, I enter the code, and it works. But I do the same thing on my workbook, nothing locks.

I've tried locking all the cells on a sheet, and only unlocking a small range, as in the examples (A1:A10), and I cant get it to work. I've tried not pre-protecting the sheet, I've tried 4 or 5 different examples of code. If it wasn't for the fact I've gotten it to work on blank workbooks, I'd think VBA was disabled or something. I can't post a copy of my workbook for you all to look at because its on a stand-alone computer at work (and the USB is disabled for info-sec).

Excel 2007 :: Clicking Cells To Change Colour Format And Mirroring

Feb 24, 2012

(Using Excel 2007)

What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:


Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:

Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.

I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.

Excel 2007 :: Conversion Of Text Into Date Format

Dec 24, 2012

I have a question about conversion of a text format into date format.

2 computers, the first windows vista, the second Windows 8, both Excel 2007.

The purpose is to calculate the difference between 2 dates with hour:minutes:seconds, like for example:
18/12/2012 19:20:00 and 18/12/2012 19:23:03.

So in this example the result should be 00:03:03.

Both dates are formatted with 'personalized' : dd/mm/yyyy hh/mm.

In the first computer everything works like it should, but in the second it is apparently impossible to transform the first of those date h:m:s which is originally in a text format into a date format. I tried all the methods which i found to transform a text date format into a date , like multiplication with 1, Datevalue and others, but nothing seems to work, the result is always "#Value".

Excel 2007 :: UserForm Textbox Date Format (yyyy/mm/dd) Error

May 26, 2014

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:

[Code] ......

When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:

[Code] .......

And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’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 need the format as follows: yyyy/mm/dd

Excel 2003 :: Cell Value To Change If Date Is Entered In Different Cell?

Feb 21, 2014

I am using Excel 2003 at work.

New cases are entered on to the spreadsheet. The case remains open until a closure date is entered, at which point the case is closed. What I need is the following:

Cell A3 = should say "Open" if there is no value in cell Y3
Cell A3 = should say "Closed" if a date or any value is entered in cell Y3. Ideally it should only say "Closed" if a date is entered in format xx/xx/xx, but am flexible so that it says "Closed" if any data is input.

At the moment Cell A1 has a drop down list consisting of open and closed. I will remove this if it causes complication.

Retain Date Format For Input Entered As Date?

Mar 24, 2014

I'm using nested SUBSTITUTE formula to make some changes to the some of the data. I'm also using IFERROR to return the input if it does not find the criteria I have specified. I have lot of variations in my input data.

The formula works fine for all except for date format input.


12/3/1923---->58936 (I want the date to be retained)

why the date format is changed even if don't specify any changes for it. I expect my IFERROR to just retain the input as it is.

Excel 2007 :: Macro Not Calculating Unless Value Entered Into Formula Bar

Apr 12, 2014

I'm trying to convert the values entered by users into specific cells into a specific percentage. When I use this macro in Excel 2010, I can enter the value to be calculated directly into the cell and the macro runs automatically. When I open the file in Excel 2007, the macro does not calculate properly unless the value to be calculated is entered into the formula bar.

For example, in Excel 2007, if I enter '30' in cell E11, it should come out as '20%'. Instead it comes out as '0.2%' unless I enter '30' into the formula bar, which then calculates properly. It is far more efficient to be able to enter the value directly into the cell.

Jan 19, 2010

I need a script that changes a cell to say closed (uses a drop box) when a date is entered into the date column.

Excel 2007 :: Get Cell To Refer To Date That It Contains And Change Cell Colour Based On That?

Dec 19, 2012

I work for a UK charity and have a list of funders in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.

One of the columns refers to the date on which a new application for funding can be made to that particular funder.

In many cases new applications for funding can't be made for 1 or more years since the last application - sometimes as many as 5 years later. How to get a cell to refer to the date that it contains.

For example, say I have in cell A1 "The Acme Funding Organisation" and in cell B1 (i.e. the "Reapply when?" column) a date of 01/04/2013 (British date format, i.e. 1 April 2013) then what I want Excel to do is to look at the date in cell B1 and if that date has been reached to highlight the cell red. That way I'll know that the reapply date has been reached & that a new application can be made.

A1 contains a green tick and A2 contains a red cross.

What I am trying to add is that if B1 contains no date then B2 needs to be blank.

Excel 2007 :: Data Points - Filtering Date / Time

I have a set of data points with date and time shown in the picture. I need to take out all the data point that are at the 30 min interval. Meaning I only want to have the data points hourly only. What can I do to remove the :30 minute datas.

I have tried the find option typing In :30 and getting all the points but then have to replace, which I do not want to do. Need to remove them so they do not show up on the trends ( graphs) I made for them.

This is for excel 2007.

Seems I can't get picture up on the ipad, so the data points look like this

1/1/2012 0:00
1/1/2012 0:30
1/1/2012 1:00
1/1/2012 1:30

And so on for an entire year. Just need to remove the ones with the :30

VBA Importing Data From Access To Excel - Date Format Incorrect

Sep 8, 2008

I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.

The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:

In Access date column headers from query are:
09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.

But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as:
01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc

It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

There is a cell on Summary that depends on which year is input first, in which case the cells in the formula SUM("cell1:cell4"))/4 is currently changed manually by the user by just checking to see which year data is input first on Finances. I need a macro or a formula function where the workbook finds which year is being used on Finances first, then changes the cells in the Summary formula accordingly.
