How To Keep Date Entry TODAY Frozen On That Specific Date
Mar 6, 2014
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.
I have data going in to a small table which has some empty rows as that data is not yet available... My problem is, I need to sort this table in date order but with the date nearest to today's date at the top...
The sort function puts oldest at the top or oldest at the bottom which is no good for what I need...
I have a workbook that I'm using to tracking staffing patterns within a mental health agency. When the workbook opens the user is asked to pick a date range and an office location. I've placed code into the userform that pre-fills the "start date" with today's date and the "end date" 7 days from today's date. I would like the user to be able to enter a unique date range should they wish but I have yet to figure out the coding to accomplish my goal.
I am trying to get the results of the number of days between today and a future date. I am using ="cell containing futuredate"-today() and it gets me the correct number of days. The problem comes in when I have yet to populate the future dates. I am getting -39991 (numeric value between today and jan 01 01) and because I am also using conditional formatting this is even more of a problem. Is there a way get excel to display nothing if it is a negative number? or to give a specified resut if the number becomes negative such as Expired or something of that nature?
Trying to automate the period part of the impt function
To calculate current value of loan i have the below formula below with the 3 being the current period
What i would like to do is for the period to be self calcuating from current date and the loan start date. I can return a value in days using start date - today() and aware month function returns the month number but stuggling to find a way to work out cumulative month from the start date.
If a1,a21,a41 have a value greater than 0, I wish to stamp cell b1,b21,b41 and so on with todays date, but without the stamped value changing/advancing tomorrow. At the moment cells b1,b21,b41 are copied down as follows. =if(a1>0,TODAY(),"") This works fine, but the date stamp of course changes tomorrow. I can not apply code to the whole b column as cells b2:b20, b22:40 etc have other non-date format data to which the code does not need to apply - the todays date value cell occurs every 20 cells.
The formula looks at the chosen start date (AL260), and then uses a displayed text day (AP20) to display the relvent date to the text day, this works fine however if the start date is say 08/08/14 (a Friday) when the formula detects a Monday (this copies down a range looking at the start date and the text days to produce dates on each line, the formula displays the Monday dates prior to start date, is there any way to alter this to make it display the dates ahead of the chosen start date?
I'm trying to get a date picker to open with the current day's date, and am running into some trouble...
I added this line to the Initialize function:
Code: Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() DTPicker.Value = Date End Sub
...and this to a button which opens the form:
Code: Sub Open_frmPatientData() frmPatientData.Show frmPatientData.txtLastName.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtFirstName.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtID.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtDay.Value = DTPicker1.Day frmPatientData.txtMonth.Value = DTPicker1.Month frmPatientData.txtYear.Value = DTPicker1.Year End Sub
and I get a 'Run Time Error 424: Object Required' error on the line frmPatientData.show (in red). If I remove the line from the Initialize event, then everything works fine, but of course the current date isn't shown. What am I doing wrong?
I am trying to take the year from today's date then subtract away a date from a referenced date in a separate workbook. Then I want to put this result into an IF statement. For example if the result is between the number 1 and 4, display 1, if the result is between 5 and 9, display 2, etc. Right now, I'm simply trying to reference the separate workbook for the date and subtract that from today's date, but I'm stuck because I only get the date's serial number back.
how I can create a formula that would highlight the cell in a colour if the date was past todays date? This is what I'm doing - I have the expiry date of people's insurances. so e.g todays date is 8 th January, so if the insurance had expired 31.12.08, i would want the cell to be highlighted red. I think it may be an IF function but I cant remember.
I need to VBA code that will loop through the active sheet for all rows, column C2 through however many rows there are. Col C contains a date in the format: mm/dd/yyyy. I need the VBA to compare this date to today's date+30 days and if the date in C2, etc. is greater than today's date + 30 days, shade the row a particular background color (e.g., 3).
I'm having a problem with data validation. I set an entire column so that it could only be a date between the first date in the list and the current date. I tested a few cells to make sure that it was working the way I wanted and I noticed that it allows a random number like 3 or 5 to be input after row 50. This would create a date in the 1900s. Why is this happening and how can I stop it.
Using one spreadsheet with three date columns and two columns counting days.
If there is a value in Resolution date, then Column N is blank If there is no value in Submit date and Resolution date, then Column N is blank If there is no value in Resolution date, and there is a value in Submit date, subtract Submit date from todays date to show how many days it has been pending approval
Created on = J4 Submitted on = K4 Resolution Date = L4 Days to Approve = M4 I've got that formula =IF(L4="","",L4-K4) Days Pending Approval= N4 (cell with formula)
If Resoultion Date L4 has a value, return blank If Submit on K4 and Resoultion date L4 are blank, return blank If Resolution date L4 is blank, and Submit on K4 has a value, subtract Todays date from Submit on K4 to show Days Pending Approval
Cell J4______Cell K4______Cell L4__________Cell M4__________Cell N4 Created on___Submit On___Resolution Date___Days to Approve___Days Pending Approval 4/5/13_______blank______Blank____________Blank___________Blank 4/5/13_______4/5/13_____4/7/13___________2_______________Blank 4/5/13_______4/5/13_____Blank____________Blank___________()Today-K4
I need cell (O4) to display days overdue or days remaining on an assigned task based on subtracting due date (M4) from todays date, but only perform days subtraction function if (M4) is not blank and only if task complete cell (N4) is less than 100.
Have the conditional blank cell figured out, but nesting another condition for the less than 100 complete cell. So in other words, I don't want cell (O4) to subtract days and display any error, irrelevant data if there is not any due date entered or the task is entered as complete...
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 have a employee travel spreadsheet with air travel dates in two columns. I want to be able to create a rule that will highlight all the cells in a row if the date range on that row fall includes today's date. if someone is traveling in the event there is an emergency and I need to know if they are traveling that particular day. I have attached a sample spreadsheet.
