Date Serial Number To Actual Date

Nov 30, 2007

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
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -5).Value & " "..........................

Convert Serial Date Time To General Format

Jul 28, 2007

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?

Serial Number Date Displaying Incorrect Day?

Dec 16, 2008

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.

Date Code Serial Number In Excel

Feb 7, 2013

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.

Convert Number To A Date?

Jan 11, 2013

I have a date in a particular cell, say O5, formatted as mm/dd; e.g. 11/14

I have the following formula in another cell;

=M5 &", Lot# "& N5 &", Expires "& O5, where cell M5 = "CONTROL" and cell N5 = "#####"

Why does the date get converted to a serial number. i.e. CONTROL, Lot# #####, Expires 41592?

My aim is to get the date "11/14" to appear in the cell.

Convert Date To Alphanumeric Number

Jan 6, 2014

As the title says I was wanting to convert a date into an alphanumeric number.

After searching around for a long time the closest thread I could find was this one : [URL] ....

I would like to enter the date by dd/mm/yyyy and have it come out to an alphanumeric number.

The alphanumeric number for example would be C21501
Where "C" is the year starting from 2013. So in this case C would be 2015

Next two digits would be the week of that year. So 21 would be in the month of May

The following number would be the day of that week starting from Monday. So in this case 5 would be Friday.

The last two numbers would be the consecutive number for that day. For example two orders could be placed that same day so the first would be C21501 and the next would be C21502.

Converting Text Date And Time To Serial Date And Time

Feb 21, 2013

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:

01/01/13 00001

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?

Convert Fiscal Date To Corresponding Week Number

Nov 12, 2009

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.

Month Serial Without Date In Cell

Jan 13, 2007

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?
