I have a workbook with several sheets, each of which represents a client. At the bottom of this sheet, I have a call log to record the times that we attempted communication, left a message, etc. Since it's tedious enough as it is, I'd like to save my team 2 seconds and a slight bit of that tedium by having the date an attempt was made automatically recorded in the row where the attempt is entered.
Let's say this all takes place in A47:D47. For example, if I called the client on 7/15/08 and left a message, I would record who was called in B47, the name of the caller (me) in C47, and the result in D47. If possible, I would like to have the date of the attempt (today's date on the given day) entered in A47 upon the entry of information in B47:D47.
I am attempting to create a formula which will detect of a cell is empty, and if it is empty enter the date by using TODAY(). I also dont want this date to change when opened after it has been entered. This is what I have been working with so far.
I am trying to use the second formula to change the value in the cell "A1", but instead it just returns a true/false statement in the cell with this formula.
I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM") Else TextBox2.Value = "" TextBox2.SetFocus End If End Sub
"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?
I can input the date and time automatically in the worksheet while a enter a number in the 3 column but when ever i enter number in the next cell whole time is changing in all the cell and it showing the same time for every number in the entering and not different time in the columns
i am trying to make one cell automatically change to current date and time when the cell next to it has changed value. ive search other posts but cannot figure this out. so if cell A1 changes value cell B1 should automatically fill with current date and time cell A1 changed value.
Is there a way to automate the date and time in one cell upon saving? I have seen some posts elsewhere upon this subject, but here is the twist: this is a shared workbook with each tab allocated for a different person. Each person needs to update their worksheet and have the date and time update upon saving. The date and time would appear in the same cell for each sheet. I am fairly certain that this cannot be done with an Excel formula, so I would appreciate if anybody had any VBA suggestions. (I am just starting to learn VBA
I would like a solution for the automatic calculation of the end date and end time for project tasks. I have already spent hours on the issue, thanks for any help on this.
The parameters are: A1 = Start time 08:00 B1 = End Time 17:00 A2 = break lunch 12:00 B2 = back from lunch 13:00
A5 = start date 01/03/10 (entered manually) B5 = start time 10:00 (entered manually) C5 = duration 02:00 (hrs entered manually) D5 = "end date" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays) E5 = "end time" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
the next line should be filled in automaitically according to the hours needed and the previous end date & time
A6 = "start date" >>> (after line 5: to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays) B6 = "start time" (after line 5: to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays) C6 = duration 14:00 (entered manually) D6 = "end date" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays) E6 = "end time" >>> (to be calculated exluding breaks and holidays)
I have cells on my spreadsheet which contain: =now() and they work as they should - displaying the date and time at the moment of entry. Unfortunately the cells update when other info is added at other locations on the sheet - is there a way to ensure they enter the current 'now' only at the point of initial entry - such that the data doesn't then alter?
I am looking for a formula or VBA that will be in each in cells D5:D300 and will look at the value entered into the cell in column C and change the 4 digits into the date and time in the same format as NOW() returns.
2045 becomes 17/02/2012 20:45
But I would also want it to see if the 4 digits that represent the time are after 14:00 and before 00:00 then the date would be the date in cell A1-1
I am trying to get excel to auto populate the current date and time each time I make an entry, however, each time i make an additional entry the current date and time populates but it changes all the prior entry's with that current date and time.I am trying to keep a log of all the times I make a new entry. Correct formula that will work?
I have a 12 month budget spreedsheet. Some expenses' are fixed every month. I would like those cells to be automatically filled with that fixed amount. Say on the 5th of every month a particular cell would have $50 automatically entered so i don't have to do it manually.
In the attached file I'd like to have a formula on cell B3 that would pick the number from the latest entry on "Actual" columns (column K, column M....). This should update the cell each month data is entered in respective month column.
know if there is any way of getting a cell produce an X (for example) when it is selected and blank when selected again? Basically a tick the bok response. I know i could use a drop down list but i was hoping for a quicker method as a lot of ticks accross a lot of cells are required. James
So the title isn't really totally descriptive but it was all I could come up with. I have a work book that has 30 identical sets of 5 cells for users to enter in information. Some of my users will not need all 30 sets. I'm wondering if there is a way for the user to enter the number of cells they need and have excel then format so they have the desired number, instead of 30. Then have excel change all the instances of this number in formulas so that it matches the new number of cells. I hope I explained this well enough for someone to help.
I've been updating all the charts manually each time I update the entries in the worksheet which charts are created from in the same workbook. Is there any way (eg. by use of macros or VBA) that I can have all the charts updated automatically when data ranges are updated each time?
I want to create a monthly timesheet which contains 9 columns for (Date, Day, Project no., Activity, Time In, Time Out, Total Hours, OT Hours, Remarks)
I have used IF Function to calculate Total Hours & OT hours automatically. Time IN & Time OUT, Project No., will be entered manually on daily basis.
Weekday function is used in the Day column to return the corresponding day of the date in the Date column.
Name of the Month and Year will be manually entered in the designated cells I3 and I4 respectively.
Now the solution I am looking for is, the dates should be automatically entered in the Date column (in cells A8 to A38) based on the Month & Year entered in cells I3 & I4. Dates of the corresponding month of the year should only be filled in. (If a month is not having 29, 30 or 31st day, the corresponding cells should be left blank. i.e. nothing should be displayed in the corresponding cells). I am looking for some sort of formula to enter in the cells of Date column (A8 to A38) achieve this. I have searched the forum and could not find anything which could at least give me an idea about the kind of function or formula to be used.
Attached here is the time sheet I am trying to create.
I have been struggling with my Excel 07 Date format. Nearly every time I perform a calculation, enter in a value etc in a spreadsheet my answer is returned as a date. So for example if I enter in a cell: = 5 - 4. I get the answer "1-Jan-1900" instead of 1. I have to manually set the formats to general or number if I want the correct format. The setting seems to be the default one and occurs for all workbooks I open. What can I do to change this.
I was curious if there is any way to have time automatically tracked in excel. I will have a few colums, first will be the time, second will be notes, when a note is inputed is there a function available to automatically fill in the time?
I have a time tracking sheet. In Column C and Column D there is a start time and end time respectively where my team people will enter the current time accordingly.
I would like to lock the cell once they enter the time but the entire sheet should not lock. Only the Column C and D should lock upon people enter the time. Basically, once user enter the time, they should not be able to change it.
So I've made a large spread sheet in Excel that calculates many values and constraints for the optimization of a structural beam; from there, the minimum value that satisfies all constraints is output in an individual cell. I want to see how this output value changes when I change one value, the length of the beam. For instance, I input a length of the beam (10 ft.) and I get an output value of 643.50; I copy and special paste this value manually into a cell. I then change the length to 15 ft. and get an output value of 1322.83 and copy and special paste this value into the next cell. This process is very tedious, because I have to do this for hundreds of values. Is there a way to automate this so that I don't have to do everything by hand. The tricky part is that every time I change the length, the entire worksheet must recalculate before I get a new output value.
I have loaded a .csv file in which the first column contains date/times, e.g. 01/12/2012 00:00. How do I now tell Excel (2010) that this is in fact a date/time format? If I select one or more of the cells, click on the Number dialog box launcher and try to pick a suitable format tghe cells resolutely refuse to budge from being text (i.e. left-justified, still allows me to edit the 'seconds' component to a number > 60). Also which data type should I be using? The only one that appears to have a full date/time format listed is Custom (not Date or Time).
I have a sheet that I enter time into in a 24hr time format, ie Military Time and cant figure out how to format the cell so that I can just type in the numbers and it automatically put it in the hour format. Currently I have to type in the hour then the colon the the minutes otherwise if I type in the time in a three or four digit format it just gives me 0:00.
I am working on a spreadsheet to create a school 'tracking' system based on excel. What I need is that as soon as a box in column B is ticked, a date (TODAY() is entered in column A. That is not so difficult, and I have used the formula in cells in column A:
=IF(ISBLANK(Bx);"";TODAY()), where x is the specific row.
So, keep cell A clear untill something is written in cell B. This works fine.
But, for the purpose I need to keep the TODAY() date fixed after entry. And it need to be erased again if the tickbox in cell B is emptied again. It need then to re-enter a new date after cell B is re-used.
