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


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

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.

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:

1___Due Date________15__________10

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.

Conditional Formatting - Two Different Fields Affect One Cells Formatting For Date?

Sep 16, 2013

A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.

IF Date Formula: IF Formula, That States If A Date Is More Than A Month After The Date In The Cell Then It Is Timely

Jun 2, 2006

I need an IF formula, that states if a date is more than a month after the date in the cell then it is timely and if it isn't then it is not timely. For example the date in A1 is 12/11/05, if the cell is A2 is 13/12/05 (or any date after that) then A3 should read Not Timely, if A2 is 12/12/05 (or any date before that, including a date before the date in A1) then A3 should read Timely. Is there any way to do this?? At the moment I am having to go through manually and put in either Timely or Not Timely.

Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

The format of B5 looks like - 13/08/2014 16:39

The file path has folders for each year in format "yyyy" with each year having sub folders for each month in format "mm".

The file name is just the date only and is formatted "" e.g. 13.08.14

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Formatting Date In VB..?

Jul 5, 2009

I found this really great vb code for my spreadsheet to be updated with the current date whenever the range is updated. I modified it a bit to include a bit more in the cell A1. what I can't work out is how to format the date so that it only shows me the date as 06/07/2009. It currently returns the date and time.

Formatting A Date Value

Dec 21, 2006

I have a column with dates formatted as yyyy-mm-dd (2006-12-21). Then I have a cell with data validation set to a list based off that column, formatted the same way. The problem I run into is that, let say I select 2006-12-21, the value is returned as 12/21/2006. The reason this is a problem is later in my macro, I am using the value to open a file based off that date. I currently have the files named in the same format (2006-12-21.xls). So when the macro goes to open the file, it errors out saying it cannot find 12/21/2006.xls. I have no problem changing the name format for my dated files, however, as you are aware, slashes cannot exist in the file name.

So my question is, when selecting my yyyy-mm-dd formatted date, how to I get the macro to not read the value as mm/dd/yyyy? If it helps, here is the code I am using to retrieve the value:

startDate = Worksheets("Macro").Range("B5").Value
B5 is obviously where the drop down is.

VBA Date Formatting

Jan 25, 2009

I tried to DL the HTML Maker to post my issue, but for some reason it wouldn't work with Excel2007. The problem is pretty simply, but I can't figure the code out. I have a column of data that looks like this:

Jan 19 @ 10:00am
Jan 18 @ 7:21pm
Jan 18 @ 7:15pm
Jan 18 @ 5:48pm
Jan 18 @ 5:44pm
000000061899 1 Jan 19 @ 9:01am
Jan 17 @ 12:07am
000000039656 1 Jan 16 @ 5:42pm

000000087214 1 Jan 23 @ 4:07am

Basically month and day with no year. The months are Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr..and so forth. Some cells have no data, others have various numeric characters included (as above). I want a loop that will format to MM/DD/YYYY. I have another column with dates in that format which I can use Offset to pull the year if I need to.

Date Formatting Cells

Oct 13, 2008

Is there a way to date format a cell so that when I enter only the number date (ie today is October 13 so I'd enter 13) the cell formats to the current month with the date?

So for today I'd enter "13" and the cell would read 13-Oct. Additionally, when the month turns to November that same cell, without me making any changes to it, would change to 13-Nov. For future dates it would always show the current month with the date I entered manually.

i seem to be having a problem formatting the date in my table. I format the cells in the 'date' category to display the date as '14-Mar-01' but only some of the dates in the cells are changed.

It is a time stamp and works fine. My issue is when I copy and paste the data I am getting the date and time. I just need the date copied not the time.

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.

Conditional Formatting With Date?

Jan 6, 2014

I have a column contain cell with value of dates. The value is from Vlookup formula. The problem is when I try to do color code to yellow for any past date from current date to all cells that contain the date value in that column, I dont see any change.

The formula I used for past date from current is =today()-1 (so that should be correct). So, I am wondering why none of the dates that past do not change the color thru the conditional formatting I did.

The Conditional formatting formula I used:

"Format only cells that contain" -- > Cell Value -- > less than or equal to -- > =today()-1

Number Formatting To A Date

Dec 14, 2006

Is there any way to turn a number that is in general/text format into a date?



to read:

8/2005 or Aug'05
9/2005 or Sep'05
10/2005 or Oct'05

I have tried using IF statements and it looks like there's a limit in the amount of scenerios you can have. I get data in text format that comes to me in numbers and I'm just looking to turn those numbers into dates so I can sort them properly.
