Excel 2010 :: Converting Hijri Date To Gregorian Date From Another Cell

I have a spreadsheet where we will be inserting the Arabic Hijri date taken from a Customs document (bayan). On my spreadsheet I'd like to have a column immediately next to the Hijri date that would convert the Hijri date to the Gregorian date so both dates will be visible for our Arabic and Western personnel who will be using the spreadsheet.

I am using Microsoft Excel 2010.

Excel 2013 :: Automation Error Exception Occurred?

Mar 25, 2014

why a macro that works without a problem in Excel 2010 now crashes Excel 2013. The error produced says 'Automation Error Exception Occurred'. If I place a stop in the code and hold the F8 key down, the code runs perfectly (Excel 2013) but if I run it, it will crash. The code is copying a worksheet into a new workbook, adding 2 more worksheets, saving then emailing the workbook before closing. It goes through the routine about 7 times before crashing (sending only 7 email out). It's something to do with the email because I can bypass that code and it runs that part without a problem.

Our office just upgraded all the computers to Office 2013 and I've got to get this macro running again. I had to email 100 reports one-by-one today and I didn't like it.

Loop Converting Date To TEXT Format

Jul 21, 2009

i'm trying to convert a column (P) from date dd-mmm-yy, subtract 5 days, and paste value as YYMM using a macro. I've borrowed bits from other macros and producted this but it's not working (and i've played around with it to the point it doesn't make sense anymore!)

Option Explicit

Dim LR As Long, i As Long
Dim tempValue1
Dim tempValue2 As Date

LR = Range("P" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 1 Step -1

Set ActiveCell.Value = Text(ActiveCell.Value - 5, "YYMM")

Next i
End Sub

I'm copying data from another source to excel, and for certain date entries they come as text in the following format "On 14 May at 8:00". Is there anyway to convert multiple entries like this into a standard date format? With or without time is fine - just the date will do.

Converting Text To Military Date Time Group Format

Apr 12, 2014

I am trying to find a way to have excel recognize text data input as date/time.

[Code] .....

Where 02 Is the Date, 2020 is the time (military) Z is Zulu/GMT, MAR is Month and 14 is Year. I believe excel recognizes

[Code] .....

But I have a spreadsheet (on a confidential system) with thousands of entries that I need to convert. Also, the people I have working for me are not remotely. I reject the idea of entering data that way.

I am also trying to keep the display the same format: ddhhmm"Z" MMM yy

Excel 2010 :: Number Format Keeps Switching To Date Format?

Aug 1, 2013

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.

This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.

Excel 2010 :: Date Comparison In Pivot Table Error

I have to generate a report using a pivot table, that tells me what work was done on time and what was late.

Converting Times Stored In Date Format To Number Format?

Mar 31, 2014

One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.

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

Mar 11, 2014

When I combine 3 reports (which we get out of a system) into 1 big file, the date format remains the same (mm/dd/yyyy and right alligned). Same happens for most of my colleagues.

When 1 particular colleague goes and combine these reports, I've noticed that some of the dates are showing as text? (dd/mm/yyyy and left alligned).

Converting To Date Format

Aug 22, 2008

I collect data from a data historian and I'm having difficulty with a date format. The collected data is saved in a txt file and imported to Excel 2007.

The date returned by the historian is the following format

9/30/2007 8:45:18.000 PM

This format is not recongnized by Excel as a date format but as a text box.

How can I change this to a date format without having to change all the dates and times manually (over 10 000 dates)?

Solver: An Expected Internal Error Occurred, Or Available Memory Was Exhausted

Dec 29, 2006

I have a macro that does a solver routine. I have another macro that runs this solver, then copies and pastes new inputs, then runs the solver, then copies the results and pastes them somewhere, then copies new inputs, etc. It is a long process and it worked fine a few days ago. Now when I run it, about 90% of the way through and then excel crashes. The error says:

Solver: An expected internal error occurred, or available memory was exhausted.

What can I do?

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".

Converting? Format To Text Format

Sep 15, 2009

On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.

I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.

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?

Converting A Text File To .xls Format

Oct 21, 2008

I have received a large file of text and numbers arranged (loosely) in columns in a .txt file that I need to get into a usable form in Excel. I'm trying to use the Text Import Wizard but am running into problems geting the column breaks right as there are thousands of rows of data items. As soon I think that I've inserted the break line in the correct place I scroll down a little further to find an item that encroaches into the next column, and when I shift the break line to the right to accommodate this new item I then encroach on the items in this next column.
