I have a macro which copies the values from one cell to another. But, while copying the macro changes the date format to a serial number and this doesnot happen all the times. Below is the code I have. I want the macro to automatically convert the date from from serial number to dd/mm/yyyy. I tried quite a different ways, but none of them seems to work. Below is the macro I run to copy the contents from one cell to another.
Sub History() ' ' Macro: Backup results from prior rounds. Please run this macro after selecting the cell where the backup is to be done. ' cur_row = ActiveCell.Row If ActiveCell.Offset(-(cur_row - 10), 0).Value <> "History" Then MsgBox ("Check whether the active cell is the designated history cell. History operation failed") Exit Sub Else ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -5).Value & " "..........................
I use software that exports date/time stamps in the format of: MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss.s I like to keep the data in this general format so that we can keep it consistent and it can be useful to others using other software. I recently had to do some date/time stamp manipulations where I added 61 days to a dataset because the data was erroneously set to a diferent calendar. (Still don't know how that happened but it isn't relevent to this issue) When I set up a formula to add 61 days, it appears that it automatically converted it to the excel serial date/time format before adding the 61 days. Now I have a column of data that is mostly general format but has this portion in serial format. How can I get the serial format changed back to general so that the entire column is in the same format?
I maintain a class register in Excel to monitor student attendance. The first row shows the date of the class in the form dd-mm.
I need to identify all dates which fall on a Monday and thought that if I custom formatted a new row as "dddd" and enter the formula =DAY(cell ref) into the cells of this new row it would achieve this- I could easily spot the Mondays for the period under review.
What I'm finding, however, is that the formula seems to incorrectly state that 16th September 2008 is a Monday whereas it's actually a Tuesday- utterly bizarre!
I can get a fix simply by modifying the =DAY() formula by adding 1 to my formula [ie =DAY(A1)+1] but am wondering is this a "so called known issue" with Excel or has anyone else come across it? I have never previously come across this and consider myself to be an above average competency level user of the application.
I need to convert a date into a serial number. The serial number must return the format DDDYYNN where DDD is the day of the year, YY is the year, and NN is the sequential build number. As an example, if 10 units are built on 2/6/2013, the serial numbers would be 0371301, 0371302 ...0371310. Cell A1 would contain the current date (2/6/13) in this example. Column B1 - B10 would be the sequential serial numbers generated by the formula.
I have a cell with the following text in it that is being imported from a website "5/1 Smith T win". What i want to do is extract the "5/1" part without it being in the format of a date. I want it to be extracted in the format "?/???". I have entered the following formula to extract the "5/1"
I saw the =WEEKNUM function introduced to Dave196. I tried it but I do not get the desired result. I get "# NAME?" What can I be doing wrong? Also, how can I have Excel take a date and convert it to a number? I want to convert a date into an invoice number (eg. 4/5/07 ===> 20070405)
The following function reads many worksheets in one workbook and put the information into one worksheet. F22 to Q22 is dates in the format of mmm-yy on the many worksheets. On the one worksheet B1, C1, D1, etc... is dates also formatted mmm-yy. Now the many sheets only have a 12 month period but could be any date within 60 months. In the many worksheets the beginning date in F22 is based on the date that is entered into G8 of the many worksheets. The function is:
Code: Function HrsByMonth(strField As String, MonthNum As Integer) As Long Dim sht As Worksheet, i As Long, j As Integer HrsByMonth = 0
I import data from a program that exports dates and times as text. I have been successful using "text to columns" to separate the time from the date and then using =text(A1,"00:00")+0 to get the time to show as serial time but I'd love to be able to do the whole date/time string in one step. In cell A1 there is data that is general format and is in this format:
No matter how you try to format it, it is not a date or time. For this project I need the serial number for the date/time. Any formula that will format it as date/time and then allow it to show as a serial date/time?
I have a spreadsheet that I use to convert a purchase order ship date from the actual date to the corresponding week it falls out on. The fiscal year always starts on February 1 regardless of the day of the week. The problem i am encountering is when the year changes. As soon as I enter 01/01/2010, the response I get is -4, where as 12/31/2009 is 48.
I am using the following formula that I found somewhere, where R2 = 02/01/2009 (02/01/2009 falls out on a Sunday). =INT((R2-DATE(YEAR(R2),2,1)-WEEKDAY(R2,1))/7)+2. I need to make the formula "not care about" the day of the week.
Down loading data I receive dates as a number that indicates YYMMDD (ex. 130603 is 03 JUN 13). Is there an easy way to convert these number strings to the actual date indicated other than typing it in?
That is what my spreadsheet looks like. I have about 130 in the sheet I'm working on now. A is my date cell, B is my total for that date, C is the cell I have made for the =Month(serial_number). The problem i'm having is how do I get it to not put a number in my "C" cell when there isn't a month present?
This sheet will change weekly, so I've went down to 300 with my month formula. When entering the formula in the cells that do not have the month, it automatically inserts a 1 that throws the count off for my entire sheet. How can I leave the code for my month in without having it add a number when there's no month?
I have a spread sheet with a date colume that reads: 2012-06-27-19 I need to have this read like 06/27/2012 but nothing I do is working I have tried to go to the formatting process and backing the hr:mm out and that doesn't work. I really don't want to go line by line to manually correct this issue.. HENCE ... over 2000 lines
Second question: If I have a column that reads 02/15/2012 and another column that reads 3/27/2012 how to a format a 3rd column to make it read total number of days between 1st date and 2nd date?
