Generate A List With The Date Of Every Other Friday

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:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
' Populate the ListBox control.
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "04/03/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "04/17/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "05/01/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "05/15/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "05/29/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "06/05/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "06/19/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "07/03/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "07/17/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "07/31/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "08/07/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "08/21/09"
listPayPeriodEndDates.AddItem "09/04/09"........................

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).

Calculating Friday Date
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

Using A List In A Pivot Table To Generate A List On Another Sheet
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.

Drop-Down List: Generate A List Based On The Value Of A Cell
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.

Auto Generate List
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)

Generate List That Match Criteria
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.

Generate New List And Tally Non Blank Cells
I am trying to make a more useful excel extracted report – what I have to start with is muck like the attached sample file. With at the bottom is what I would like to be auto done.

There is a column of names – with most names repeating so the first thing needed is to create a new summary list – can be in the same worksheet or in a new worksheet. The new list with be just a list of each name but only display each name once rather that the multiple of times as source list.

The second requirement is than once have a list of each name that appears then in columns next to each a tally /count of each non blank cell under each respective column heading - now it has to be a count of non blank cells as the content of each cell will chance – now need to understand it is not a count of numerals as such but a count of non blank cells so it is not 1 + 3 + 5 = 9 but should be 1 +3 + 5 = 3 (3 non blanks).

A idea of what I want is at bottom of sample worksheet attached

Code To Generate 'date' Ref Number
each time a button is clicked I want a new ref number to be produced and displayed on my userform.
I can't however create the code to generate this ref number.

In column A of my 'sweeplog' worksheet is where I want the ref number to be placed. This ref number is simply made up of today's date - in format ddmmyy eg 240408 for today 24th April 2008 then add the number '1' if its a new date or the next number in coulumn A if not.

for example In column A I have these 3 ref numbers
A2 = 2404081 (24th April 2008 plus 1 as this is the first ref used today)
A3 = 2404082 (as above but with 2 added)
A4 = 2404083 (as above but with 3 added)

now tomorrow the next ref number that would be shown in column A (after the user clicks the button) would be as follows.....

A5 = 2505081 (25th April 2008 plus 1 as this is first ref used on 25th)

I am able to get this unique ref number to show in my userform but can't figure out how to produce the code to generate it

Every other Friday, I need to submit my biweekly work hour sheet to manager. For example, as 12/21/2007 is Friday and pay day, I need to submit my sheet. Next time is two weeks later, 1/4/08, and on.
12/21/07 is the first event.

First Monday, Thursday, And Friday Of Month
In cell A1 I have a date (like 8/1/08)

In A3, B3, and C3 I need to have the first Monday, Thursday, and Friday of the month. Here's the caveat, I need A3 to have the day that comes earliest in the month.

In this case, A3 would contain 8/1/08 since it's the first Friday, B3 would have 8/4/08 as the first Monday, then C3 would have 8/7/08 as the first Thrusday.

If A1 contained 7/1/08 then A3 would have 7/3/07 as the first Thursday with Friday and Monday following.

Finding Closest Date In A List
I've been turning this problem over it my head for the last day and can't seem to come up with a decent solution, so I figured I'd post it here to see if anybody else had any bright ideas.

I have a data sheet with a dropdown list on it to select the month and year that determines how the rest of the data sheet populates. Basically I'm giving weekly breakdowns of data for a month at a time, with the "Week Ending" heading (which are dates - Saturdays), populating off of the month and year selected from the dropdown.

So, to give an example, if somebody selects March 2008 in the dropdown, it will populate the week ending dates of 3/1, 3/8, 3/15, 3/22, 3/29, and then pull out the specific data for each week based on those dates.

What I'd like to do is write a formula that will find the first Saturday of the month. The way I have it jury-rigged right now is a list of months with the first Saturday listed next to it and a vlookup to grab the date of the first Saturday. I envision using this report indefinitely into the future and I'd like to avoid having to keep adding/changing the manual list of Saturdays, instead preferring to have a way to determine the date.

Auto Date Stamp With Drop Down List?
I'm producing a new spreadsheet to track issues and thier completion. I've used the code I have on another spreadsheet, that I got off this site, thanks. What I would like to change are the following:

1) The status column (F) uses a drop down list, located in cells Z1 to Z5.
When an option is selected, the date updates in column G automatically.
What I would like is for the date to only update in column G if the drop
down list is changed to Completed.

2) If the status is changed to completed by mistake, and then changed back
I would like the date to disappear.

Finally, can I make the date columns jump automatically so the person entering the data goes from column F to column H.

Counting The Number Of Times A Date Appears In A List
the number of days when there were 0 cases
the number of days there was 1 case
the number of days when there were 2 cases.
As yet there are no days in which there were more than 2 cases but there might be in the future.

I have a list of dates when operations took place in that room. On some days the it was not in use, so those dates don't appear in the list. Some days there was 1 case, so that date appears once in the list. On some days there were two cases, so that date appears twice in the list.

What I've done so far is create a pivot table that contains all the dates, then grouped it by day and counted the number of times there was 1 or 2 cases in a day by hand, then subtracted the total to get the days when there weren't any cases.
