# Formatting Date In Excel Formula With Text

Mar 6, 2013

My formulas is

="Start Date: " & VLOOKUP('Project Information'!\$C\$4,Sheet1!A285:T285,19,0) & "
End Date: " & VLOOKUP('Project Information'!\$C\$4,Sheet1!A285:T285,20,0)

The results I want are Start Date: MMM-DD-YYYY End Date: MMM-DD-YYYY

What I am getting is: Start Date: 41537.7083333333 End Date: 41537.7083333333

So excel is give me the numeric values of the date instead of the formatted date. I tried to format the cell as date, but as I expected that didn't work because the cell also has text in it.

## Excel Formatting Everything To A Date?

Mar 13, 2013

Once in a while, for some reason, Excel decides to format a whole random file in my hard drive to dates.

So far, I haven't bothered because it only happens once each month and a half or something like that.

The thing is, recently, it happened again. But now, each time I import some data (copy/paste) in a sheet, Excel decides to format any number data to dates. The data imported has nothing to do with a date (1-5 or 1/5), it's just numbers.

I originally thought it was the imported data that was at fault, but it's not.

I can't format my cells to text, because it's going to screw up a lot of my formulas and it wouldn't make sense anyway.

## Excel 2013 :: Extract Date And Time Info From A Text Cell That Contains Text And Date And Time

Jul 19, 2014

I am using Excel 2013. Anyway, the first issue is that I need to pull a date and a time period from text. So, for example, if I see something like Sunday Prime Time 7/6/14 8:37PM, I would want to pull ONLY the "7/6/14 8:37PM" out of it. Each text box could potentially be different, so it might not always be in the same format as "Sunday Prime Time 7/6/14 8:37PM" it might only show just the date and/or the time without all the extra text i.e. 7/6/14 8:37PM. Some of the cells will have text, others might only have just the time or even just the date and the time. The only thing that I am worrying about in each cell is extracting just the date and time. If this is too much to ask of excel, I would be ok with extracting ONLY the time - 8:37PM and not the date, but I would much rather be able to get both the time and date.

THEN, onto part two of my question. After I would pull the dates and times, I need to compare them with each other. So, when I have the same date with two separate times on that date, I need to write a formula to show if those times on that date are less than 30 minutes apart. So, if I have 6 times on 7/6/14, I need to know if any of them are less than 30 minutes apart.

I would need to have the formula say something like "Problem" if the times on 7/6/14 would be 5:30PM, 5:48PM, 7:00PM, 8:00PM, 8:15PM, and 9:00Pm for example. I would like to see the word "Problem" since 5:30PM and 5:48Pm is only 18 minutes apart, and "Problem" after 8:15PM since that is only 15 minutes past the 8:00PM which is obviously under 30 minutes. The times that are more than 30 minutes apart such as 7:00PM and 9:00PM for example are more than 30 minutes apart from any of the other times that were extracted.

## Date Formatting In VBA :: Dates That Are Imported As Text

Sep 12, 2007

to change the format of some dates that are imported as text.

In a previous request ...

[url]

I was shown a way to convert dates correctly.

This solution works perfectly when carried out manually, but doesn't work if a record a macro and then replay it - only some of the dates are converted.

Here is a small sample of the dates I'm working with...

04/09/2008
05/10/2007
08/10/2007
14/09/2007
15/09/2007
17/09/2007
17/09/2007
17/09/2007
19/03/2008
20/09/2007
21/09/2007
21/09/2007
25/09/2008
27/09/2007
28/09/2007
28/09/2007

And here's the recorded macro, deliberately left exactly as is

## Converting Date Column To Text Formatting

Mar 9, 2009

I have column A set up to display dates in the following format: 03/04/2009. While the "look" is fine for the values in the column, I cannot get it to stay in that format when it is moved to a text file. It simply converts the display back to 39876.

I would like a macro that 1) looks at all values in column A and 2) converts each cell in the column to text format but leaves the contents so they are dates 03/04/2009 (mm,dd,yyyy).

## Custom Formatting A Date In A Text Entry

Mar 24, 2009

I have a date in H34, 21/03/2009.

In I34 I have the same date again, except formatted as MMMM YYYY so its showing "March 2009".

In G10, I want the cell to read: Number at end of March 2009, with the month and year being taken from the date range. To be honest, I can get the year okay using the Year() function but cant get the month as cant convert it back from a numeric.

## Formatting Date In Formula Bar?

I need the formula mmm-yy to be in the cell and have the cell and the formula bar display Nov-13 in this case. The reason being that the macro is reading from the formula bar, usless I can change that some how?

## Formula For Static Date Formatting?

Jan 9, 2010

Here is what I currently have to make the cell blank and highlighted yellow in the event the date in K1 equals the second day of any month

=IF(DAY(K\$1)=2,"","N/A")

Conditional formatting is just =DAY(K\$1)=2

What I need to do is apply these same conditions to the cell if the date in K1 is equal to 02/10/10 or 04/10/10 or 06/10/10 or 08/10/10 or 10/10/10 or 12/10/10

## How To Avoid Auto-formatting To Date Format In Excel

Apr 6, 2014

System is generating IDs like 1-OCTO33, 1-NOVE44, which on exporting in excel converts to 1-OCT-33 & 1-NOV-44. How can this auto-formatting be restricted in excel?

To test, you can try entering in excel 1-OCTO33, it converts to 1-OCT-33.

I am looking for some setting in excel, which would prevent it on exporting to excel. Other options like changing column format to text or using a limiter ' will not work in this case.

## Formula + Conditional Formatting For No Of Days Before Due Date

Oct 5, 2007

Heres what I am trying to do:

I have a due date of 30/10/2007 in cell A2, I would like the cells in row 2 to change to the colour green 15 days before the due date (15/10/2007) and then I would like Row 2 to change to the colour Amber 10 days before the due date (20/10/2007).

This is what I was trying to do but it is not working for me:

____A_______________B__________C
1___Due Date________15__________10
2___30/10/2007______=a2-b1______=a2-c1

The Formula in B2 and C2 work fine.

I was then thinking that I could put a formula in Conditional formatting that says something like
If todays date is equal to b2 then Green else do nothing or If todays date is equal to c2 then Amber else do nothing

I can't figure out the formula for that though.

## Complex Text Formula Formatting

Sep 8, 2008

I am trying to generate a formula for formatting text that will remove all spaces, comma's etc. Examples as follows:

The Bank Job -> the _bank_job_small.gif
Picture This! -> picture_this_small.gif
Chacun son combat (Never Back Down) -> chacun_son_combat_small.gif

I've figured out a formula that works but it seems overly complex - it uses multiple SUBSTITUTE, SEARCH and REPLACE functions. Is there an easy way to remove a range of symbols i.e. ! : ( ' ?

## Formatting Formula And Text In Same Cell

Currently, it is returning [e.g.] ...result is 0.5, instead of ...result is 50%

## Excel 2010 :: Condition Formatting On Column Of Text?

Jul 22, 2014

I have a column of numbers that are already formatted as text. Some of the data is duplicate which is fine. It's like a list of 6000 numbers. I want to conditionally format the column so that I can fill the cell with a color as long as it stays the same number, but if it changes to a new number make it a different color. I don't need a lot of colors. Two is fine. TI have Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Formatting As Phone Number From Text?

Jan 13, 2014

I am trying to format a cell (in Excel 2010) as a phone number. The problemis that the data comes over from our download as text. Is there an easier way then using the 'SUBSTITUTE' function to change format to a true phone number (so that we can mail merge into WORD)? Since it is extracted out as a text, using the 'phone number' format (under special) will not work. Using the 'SUBSTITUTE' formula to remove the parenthesis', the dash and the space work but is cumbersome.

Below is an example of the text format that is being extracted: (706) 378-7585

## Excel 2002 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Date In Adjacent Cell

## Excel 2003 :: Date Formula For If Given Date Is Before Or After Today Or If Nothing Entered

Jan 17, 2013

Cell B1 contains a date, then B2 contains a formula that says:

=IF(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2)

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.

I tried using =IF((A1="",0),(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2) to get it to show a 0 if there was no data but this doesn't work.

I am using Excel 2003.

## Excel 2007 :: ID Number Formatting Lost After Text To Columns Is Used

Jul 16, 2014

I have a text file that I need to open in MS Excel 2007. The file contains the following data. (Each column is delimited by the "|" character.)

Part #|Inventory ID
1743|213,221
1864|10,40
1948|1170,1180
5265|100,104,107,10004

Ultimately, I need three columns but the data needs to look the same as it did before I opened the file.

When I open the file for the first time, I use “Text to Columns” to delimit the fields by the "|" character. The problem is that the Inventory IDs in the middle column get a bit whacky.

Here's what I'm left with:
Part # Inventory ID
1743 213,221
1864 10,40
1948 11,701,180
5265 10,010,410,710,004

The comma is retained appropriately when there are two 2- or 3-digit Inventory IDs.

When a row has multiple, longer Inventory IDs or Inventory IDs that vary in length, the comma is moved to every 3rd decimal place.

I tried putting quotation marks around the data before I opened the text file for the first time but that didn’t do anything. I tried Custom Formatting to retain the comma position (0000,0000) but this only worked when I had two 4 digit IDs. I also changed the number type to Text and General. Once the comma was changed, I couldn’t figure out how to get it back.

How to best retain the format of my Inventory IDs.

## Excel 2011 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Text Match From If Statement?

Oct 2, 2013

I want to highlight a cell if the text displayed from an IF formula is equal to the cell content.

CELLS BK10:BN10 are merged and have entered into them the following text "SELL"

Cells BJ20:BP20 are merged and contain the following formula which currently results in the cell displaying "SELL"

=IF(BM22<=-0.08,"SELL", IF(AND(BM22>-0.08,BM22 < -0.03),"NO INDICATION", IF(BM22>=-0.03,"HOLD")))

Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%

When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If(\$BJ\$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?

I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Adding Text To Cell Based On Multiple Cells

May 31, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.

This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.

I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.

I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.

## Change Date From Text To Excel

Oct 5, 2012

When I take data from another file it comes in as text in the form of 20120705.

Is it possible to convert this in Excel to a date format of 05/07/2012? Have to do it without macros as the file is e-mailed on
and will get deleted/and or quarantined by our spam filter if it has macros within.

## Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND(\$E\$8>=M2,((\$E\$8-\$D\$8)>=(N2-\$M\$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND(\$F\$8<=M2,\$G\$8>=M2), color index is 39
condition 4: Formula Is =AND(\$H\$8<=M2,\$I\$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND(\$J\$8<=M2,\$K\$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

## Excel 2010 :: Icon Conditional Formatting Not Working When Formula Present In Active Cell?

Mar 20, 2014

I am trying to apply icon conditional formatting in a cell. The cell contains the following formula: =VLOOKUP(D20,'owssvr(1)'!O:W,9,FALSE The formula results in a "2", "1", "0" or "-1" in the cell. The icon conditional formatting is not working at all (no icon appears). I have the conditional formatting setup as numbers Green 2, Yellow 1,0 etc based on value. If I delete the formula and just type in any of those numbers directly, it works. I have changed my cells to "number" and it still does not work.
