I have a protected worksheet. Users wish to be able to track changes in the input cells. The suggested approach for this is to temporarily disable sheet protection and allow them to change the font color, then protect afterwards. What I would like to do is:
i) check whether they are in an input cell ii) if so, then prompt the user with the 'Font Color' dialog box iii) apply the font color selected to the input cell
I'm struggling to find the dialog box I need. I can launch the one to change the interior color, no problem (Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPatterns).Show). But that's no use to me, I just want a color palette that specifically relates to the Font Color
I have a sheet i am working on at the moment, i basically have in Column A (named Interview Date) a date and in column Q (named Date Cleared) another date.
What i want is so when i enter a date in column Q if the date is 14 days or more after the date in column A it will highlight Blue and if the date is upto 14 days after the date in Column A it will highlght green.
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Dim user As String If Worksheets("Setup"). Range("D6").Value = "" Then user$ = InputBox("Hello. Please enter your name to inialize the program", "Enter Name") Worksheets("Setup").Range("D6").Value = user MsgBox ("Welcome " & user & ". Press 'OK' to continue on to the Main Menu.") Else user$ = Worksheets("Setup").Range("D6").Value MsgBox ("Welcome back " & user & ". Press 'OK' to continue on to the Main Menu.") End If Exit Sub
but i would like to expand the "welcome back" msgbox to also display "the last time you were was was (eg: 2 days/3 hrs/14 min) ago" - which i presume would be calculated from the last save.
I need a formula to calculate how many months has passed irregardless how many days had passed. What I mean by that is if I have a starting date of 1/31/2010 and an end date of 2/1/28/2010, that should count as 1 month passed. I tried using the DATEDIF function, but that function is counting number of days, so if only 28 days had passed, that would not count as 1 month.
I have thousands of timestamps that have a start & end date and time in 2 separate columns. (one named start and one named end...)
I also have numerous set time periods that i'm interested in.. (about a dozen or so)
for example 01/01/2008 - 05/01/2008, 07:30:00 - 10:00:00
What i need is to be able to count the number of times the full time period i am interested (07:30:00 - 10:00:00) in falls in between the thousands of start and end timestamps i have. The time periods must also fall within the date range specifed.
So if my timestamps were Start: 01/01/2008 06:30:00 & End: 02/01/2008 11:00:00, based on the set time period above, there would be a count of 2
and if my timestamps were Start: 01/01/2008 07:05:00 & End: 02/01/2008 09:00:00 there would be a count of zero as there is not a full uninterupted timeperiod 07:00:00 - 10:00:00 between these timestamps.
and if my timestamps were: Start 01/01/2007 07:00:00 & End 02/01/2007 10:00:00 the count would be zer as this is a year early!
I want to return a value based on once off time related data which is captured at 4 time periods throughout a day. I have another set of data which does not line up with this data but I want it to return the value closest earliest value.
Given this data: 27-6-14 3:00 12 27-6-14 7:00 18 27-6-14 11:00 19
If I have a time like 27-6-14 5:00 I want to return a value of 12 (Previous time). How would this be possible?
Calculate certain time increments for various work-shifts. I have a start time,finish time and increments of time across the spectrum of 24 hours. There are also multiple start time across the 24 hour period with some start times begining on one day and ending on the next day.
In B5 Startime is 22:00 In C5 Finishtime is 06:30
In I3 increment begins at 00:00 In I4 increment ends at 00:30
The employee working the shift from 22:00 - 06:30 would fall into the time increment of 00:00 - 00:30 where another employee working a different shift (08:30 - 17:00) would not. I'm looking for a formula that would return a 1 in a cell if the employee fell into the 00:00 - 00:30 time increment and a 0 in a cell in the employee did not fall into the time increment.
I am trying to determine a formula to know a period time for example i started to test a unit at 10:20 am of 10/02/2011 and i would like to add 52 hours of test and i would like to know when and at what time will finish the test?
I have sheet that is populated with data daily. I wish to create graphs from information contained within a table in this sheet where i can select the start date and end date of the graph possibly from a drop down menu. I will be creating multiple graphs and wish for them all to change when i select the time period.
I've searched a few of the posts here about freebies in terms of adding a trial period to your spreadsheet. I'm just starting to get into VBA programming (beginnner), but I was wondering if anyone here could suggest actual programs or add-ins that I could buy that would allow me to create a trial version of my spreadsheet? either by allowing the user to use it for a few days or to allow the user to use it for a specifed # of times.
I'm willing to pay for this, but I can't afford those expensive Licensing/Copy protection programs....I need a simple solution in between $20 and $60....
I have a in field column M of my table that gives the week number of various dates within the table.
I would like to find the high value reached during each week based on the Highs which are located in column P, the highs consist if workdays during each week number.
I would like this to appear as a new calculated field entitled "Week High", I am assuming I need to input a custom formula to do this. I also want to create calculated fields for the the high reached during each year, the year is in column L
I have an Access database, with a table of jobs processed.
One column for Job ID (Unique), Date it was processed, By Who it was processed and Comments ascoiated.
I need to chart a graph of Jobs over a period of time. How many jobs done per date. In excel preferebly, I have programs like Database Plus for excel. And I am familiar with VBA. I can't figure out how to uniquely sort how many jobs for each date. As there are numerous job entries for on the same dates. I think it can be done with an SQL query or sorting it with VBA somehow. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Or can anyone suggest an application designed for charting with Access databases in Excel?
I want to make a sheet that will lock cells from rows that have passed the yesterday date. In A column i entred the days and the locked row must have the range from A to U. After i read the post from here Lock / Protect Rows Past Due Date any solution.
compare two lists of data in order to identify the possible matches considering date&time and the location stored in different columns as shown in the example file attached. The range of date and time for the comparison is one hour, but it can be changed...
I am a flight instructor and legally we cannot work more than 8 hours in any consecutive 24 hour period. I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that will calculate the totals from that 24 hour period for me.
Right now I have something that sort of works, but not the way I would like it. I have a column for "time" that has the date and ending time of the flight and I am using that as if the total flight occurred at one moment (the ending time).
So, for instance let's say I did these flights
1: 8AM-10AM (2 hours, clocked at 10AM) 2: 11AM - 2 PM (2 hours, clocked at 2PM) 3: 7AM-9AM the following day (2 hours, clocked at 9AM)
If I have my formula calculate the time for 9AM the following day (totaling the past 24 hours) the first flight won't be included in the calculation since the hours from that flight is only imputed at 10AM. The formula would read 4 hours rather than the (actual) 5 hours.
Here is my workbook : 8 hour calculator sample.xlsx
Here are the formulas I am using
The time is formulated at date and time, with time being the ending flight time
The start time for the calculation is
end time is just =NOW()
Total calculation is
All I'm trying to do is use the totals under "flight start" and "flight end" instead of the end flight time I had to put in under the date column.
I am trying to calculate the average start time for a machine over a period. However the machine start time varies from 10:00 pm to past midnight. I have tried reviewing past posts but cannot seem to find a similar query.
I'm opening a workbook and then running the macro in the workbook. The problem is I would like to build a "timeout" feature if the macro is running too long (as some of the macro's this will run can take days to complete) but I don't know how to run the macro asynchronously. Also I need to know if i can get it to run asynchronous is there an event that will tell me when the process is finished. The calling application of the macro is written in VB6 and opening excel workbooks to run the macros out of. also the "timeout" feature must be done from the VB6 application it cannot be edited into the the workbooks containing the macro.
I have a small range that i need to copy to another sheet for each working day of a time period(01/01/2014-30/04/2014) excluding weekends and holidays, adding the date in the first column of the new sheet.
How to create a formula to determine the longer period of time between two date calculations and enter the longer period of time in the cell.
My Spreadsheet: Cell M2: Birthdate (entered in cell as 11/1/2004) Cell J2: Last date of service (entered in cell as 10/31/2011) Cell G2: Calculation to enter the longer period of time between (M2 (year) + 21) and (J2 (year) + 7)
Example using information from above: 2004 + 21 = 2025 2011 + 7 = 2018 2025 is the result I want added to G2
If there is any way to include the month/year in G2 that would be ideal.
I am trying to lock cells after today's date has passed so that no one can make changes to it after today's date has lapsed. This is for protective reasons so that people do not remove their names from reserving something after using it. Now the code should disallow locking after cell input entry when today's date hasn't passed so that changes can still be made by the user. I am trying to determine the code to do this but I have no idea as to how to do it.
Here's a scenario: I reserve something for Aprill 11, 2009. I input my name. Since it's April 9th, 2009, I am still able to make changes up and until April 11, 2009. After this date, the cell is locked and no changes can be made, except for the administrator.
I am trying to make a line graph showing the gradual rises and falls in profit over a period of time, when I use the data and click line graph normally, it will plot each bit of data individually rather than gradually, for example;
If I tried to plot the above data, the graph will not show a gradual rise but instead will show a value of Â£1604.88 on the 23rd of September when instead I would want the chart line to be at Â£29,287.55 (The total).
I need to determine a formula which will allow me to calculate a future date based upon a current date with varying time periods.
I have a bill which is paid on the 15th and last business day of each month. I would like to be able to see the next due date regardless of what day of the week it is.
I have a bill which is paid every other Tuesday. I would like to know the next due date without having to enter +14 for every due date in the future. In other words, it is preferable to be able to open the spreadsheet and automatically see the next due date, not use autofill to repeatedly add +14 to a previous date which would limit the # of future due dates that could be calculated.
I have a bill which is paid on the last business day of each month, not the last Friday of each month. I would need excel to return a value for the last day of the month which = Monday-Friday, regardless of what day of the week it may be as long as it isn't Saturday or Sunday(holiday exclusion would be nice but not required).
