Generate A List With The Date Of Every Other Friday
May 30, 2009
On my timesheet, there is a button that, when clicked, allows you to select a pay period end date. Our pay periods end every other Friday. When the button is clicked, it opens a form I designed that has a listbox that I manually entered every pay period for the year into. Here is the code I used:
What I'd like to do instead is have VBA populate the listbox (or combobox or what have you) dynamically, by using a reference point (say, the first pay period of the year) and then populating every other Friday from that point forward. Also, it would be great if it could reference the current date as to only list pay period end dates in the future (or even the two prior to todays date, and then maybe 3 or 4 pay period end dates in the future).
I have a folder containing about 100,000 files and subfolders. Approximately 20% of the files are duplicates. I would like to create a list of all the files with some details so that I can sort through and identify which ones are duplicates, then create a batch file to delete them. How to get a file list with additional details, like size, modified date, etc, into an excel format?
I need to work out how to get the last (or most recent) Friday date. Suppose today is 14/02/2013, then the previous date is: 08/02/2013. If today is 15/02/2013, then I just want it to be 15/02/2013 as it is Friday.
If there's one thing I really wish I understood more in Excel its how to use formulas to calculate days and times.
I'm looking for a formula that will give me the date of the last Friday in a month based on another date. I have the formula below at the moment that works quite nicely for March 2012 but not for any others. It's getting the 5 at the end to be more flexible that's got me stumped.
I have dates listed in column A indicating the day an action was performed. In column B I need to have the date in column A changed to a Friday. If the date in column A is not a Friday, then the date in column B needs to fall back to the previous Friday. For example, if the date entered in column A is today, Monday August 7, then the date in column B that I would be Friday August 4. Can anyone think of code that determine this and place the value in column B? Currently I use vlookup to go to another sheet where all the possible dates are listed with their respective Fridays, but this slows down the calculation worksheet as the file is quite large.
Need a formula for cell J27 that returns the date of the following Wednesday from a date in cell J2 that's a Wed, Thurs, or Fri or return the date of the following Friday for a date in cell J2 that's Sat, Sun, Mon, or Tue.
For example, when 05-29-08, a Thursday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Wednesday's date of 6-04-08. or For example, when 06-01-08, a Sunday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Friday's date of 06-06-08.
I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:
The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:
I have a large amount of data, 40,000+ rows about how students do in remedial classes including from whom they took the classes. I have pulled from it a subset of student success as relates to the separate instructors. Now I would like to extract a consolidated list of those instructors for whom the student gain on criterion based pre and post course assessments is above a specific level. I have no trouble writing if statements that will look at two types of data, the course taken and the average student increase to determine which instructors meet or surpass the criterion, but I can only do that within a list that includes all the instructors. Because there are more than an hundred such instructors, it would be easier for the dean if I could provide a short list of those that meet specific criteria. I believe that it would be an array that I should use, but I have been fooling around with this for 2 days now, and am finding myself at a series of deadends!
I am trying to generate a list based on the value of a cell. That list will then be used as the range for a drop-down list. Example: Cell A1 returns a value of 15 A drop-down list displays the values 1 through 15. Cell A1 changes to 20 Drop-down list displays the values 1 through 20. I assume I'll need a two-step macro to accomplish this but I can't figure out the logic to populate the drop-down.
I have a set of accounts (general ledger accounts) that the accounting group posts expenses to. every once in awhile a new account is added. This is captured through a pivot that i have built (sheet A).
on another sheet (sheetB) i want to display the accounts that are shown in the pivot so that i can forecast their future activity.
What i am trying to figure out is how can i make the list on Sheet B change when new accounts are added to the pivot on Sheet A (without simply referencing the pivot table making one cell equal the other)? I am not looking for a data validation pull down, i want a full list of the accounts.
I have an event that is one week long (7 days), with three functions happening each day (7 days - 3 columns per day).
There are 11 groups with various number of possible attendees listed in rows. Attendees of a given function is indicated by entry of a 1 or 2 (attending partner), Blank = not attending. I would like to show a list of the attendees for a given function by clicking or moving my mouse pointer on the event function column header.
The list would need to be automatically updated when the attendees status changes (entry or deletion of 1 or 2)
Find attached an example sheet. I have one list with data... Name, Handle, Result. I want to have three lists from that data
List 1 would have top ten highest results List 2 would have top ten lowest results
Some results will be the same so I would need each Name listed as they appear in the main list until ten is reached. List 3 would have top ten handle, but would not include anyone in list 1 or 2. This will be a shared workbook
I have a long list that is geneerated each week and I need to split them based on their category acrross a number of sheets all named by the category. These sheets don't exist at the beginning.
My list would be like:
Col A Col B UK Dave UK Bill UK Ann US Bob AUS Sheila AUS Bruce
I want to run a macro down the list and build sheets for each unique ColA ie UK, US and AUS and then copy the ColB values into the correct sheets so UK has Dave, Bill and Ann in colA of the sheet named UK. anyone have an example of this type of process.
This is what I'm trying to achieve: Display a list box (or any other appropriate form/active X control) to get input from the users which is usually a list of several terms. Once they've input the list, upon clicking 'OK' it should add them all to Col. B.
The above request WILL be a good solution, but if there is an advanced solution to this for eg., something like a list box with buttons, for instance: click on 'Articles' and it populates 'a,' 'an,' & 'the, click on 'Prepositions' and it populates all the pre-fed prepositions, etc. that would be PERFECT!
I have a database file with a list of components. Each component has manufacturers name, part number, description etc. I need to create an individual file from each of the components in the list. I would like a quick and easy way to copy the information in each Row and generate a new file for each Row containing the existing template I have.
I have been working on a project with 30 products and 20 different companies.
I am working on a business case, where there are launch dates for various companies with expected sales, contribution margin, NPV etc.
The idea is that I can create specific scenarios (What is Company1 doesn't launch the products, etc), and there is an accompanying each company. Because it can be difficult to see what products are included in the current calculations, I would like to use some kind of function that produces a list that matches my criteria. (In this case, all cells for a company that are larger than 0).
I would like to find a function that finds all products that have a launch date and create a list of them -- without spaces between non-matched results. And that it updates whenever data is changed (new launch year or new product in company's profile)
I have included a generic excel file to show what I am going for.
I am trying to create a list, I know how to do this on the same sheet, I need to be able to have the list informaiton on a data sheet that contains other information that I need to have to populate other parts of the sheet. then I need to add this list data so that I can have drop down options so that users can pick from selected work descriptions
I've created a userform to track attendance. The code below creates entries based on the activities undertaken on that day; one row for each activity reflecting Name, ID, date, Activity and comments. The intent is that several activities can be undertaking on a day, and the code generates separate rows for each activity....
