Last Modified Date
I have a number of excel files in a directory that require me to take action after a file has been saved. What I want to do is create a macro that will look to each file and retrieve its 'modified date', then put that into a spreadsheet. What would be ideal is to create a User Defined Function to look at the last modified date of a file in the cell next to it (I have the files names in a spreadsheet as a hyperlink).

Date Last Modified (in Cell)
I want to know if there is a way to have a cell beside a series of cells that will change its date (and time) when any of the cells in the series is changed.
On a single row, I have four materials that total to a fifth cell. The 6th cell in that row, I would like to have a "date last modified" that would change if any of the first five cell's value is changed.
Determine Last Modified Date
I have a pivot table for which I load data from a .csv file. Is it possible to include a timestamp on when the .csv file was last loaded. If I do it above the actual pivot table, it just shows when the pivot table was refreshed, but not when the .csv file was last loaded.
Date Stamp When Cells In Row Are Modified
I am trying to find a way for an automatic date stamp to be populated into a field in a row when any other cell contained within the same row is changed or modified. I am hoping that there is an easy solution to this. I have tried searching for this and found a few related posts but I don't know how to modify the code to work for me and when I try to do it, it doesn't work. I have attached an example. I would like column B to populate when I modify any field in the row with the date it is being modified.
Get The Modified And Open Date Of An External Workbook
I have a list that show file names and when the necessary works on these files were completed, but the powers that be want more. I have been asked to add two more columns, one showing when the file was last opened and the other when it was last modified.
Is it possible to do this through VBA without having to open the files that are listed? If so I will run the macro when the workbook is first opened.
Static Date Insert - Change When Modified
I have a spreadsheet that has the date in one cell. I want the date to remain static unless I make a change. ie, when I first create the sheet I want a static date to go into this cell. Then I only want this date to change if any changes are made to the workbook (several sheets), I dont want the date to change everytime I open the spreadsheet. It must however update if I make any changes to particular cells on various sheets.
Application.FileSearch To Obtain Last Modified Date
I've been trying to get this to function correctly. The following code does pull out a list of all filepaths, but what I want to to is access the properties of the file.
Basically I select a customer from a combo box, and from this the code does a vlookup to determine what folder the reports are stored in. The list is then entered onto the worksheet 'FilesInReportFolder'. There is some commented out code as I've ben trying to come up with a simple way to remove the 'xls' from the end of the string, but din't worry about that.
I've found a website that suggests adding .name to the lineto get the name instead of the path, but what I really want is be able to pull out other details about the file.

Search Folders & Subfolders For Files By Date Modified & Move/Copy Them
I'm trying to make a macro that will search a folder and move all files from 2008 into another folder. So far it can do this, but what i need is for it to search subfolders also. At this point it moves all files from the main folder, but nothing from the subfolders.

Function To Return Last Modified File
I don't really know VBA more than just piecing together other people's work (so please dumb down your responses as much as possible).
So I would like to have a function that displays a filename within a cell. The filename I need to display will start with "cost" and have a date at the end (not always the same number of characters). I need to search a folder for all files that contain that text and return the last modified one.
I found this VBA code that returns the last modified file, but only filters based on the extension (which I would like to keep in the code as well).
Sort Each Time The Stats Are Modified
I have used the "sort" function on many occasion, and I am now stumped as to why it wont work
I have a table with 9 columns: Team, Games played, Games won, Games tied, games lost, goas for, goals against, diff and points.
Each of the collums and rows have different calculators in them.
I want to sort each time the stats are modified, to show who is is first place, second etc. Thus the sort is by Points first, then Diff.
Modified Compare And Delete Across Sheets
This compares cells in every sheet to a master sheet "AllUnits" and deletes all the matched rows on the Master. I modified it slightly to also delete the matched row on the source sheet as well (looking for rows that are not matched on any sheet). This works to a point, but I have to re-run it many times since when the source row is deleted, the code actually skips to the next row. I tried to reset the source variable with
Modified Transpose Function OR Macro?
I am trying to perform the following, but am unsure if a macro is needed, or if there is a way to do it by possibly modifying the transpose function. Here are the steps required:
1 - copy a selected range of cells from a single row in one worksheet (i.e. D3:AE3).
2 - paste the data from those cells into a selected range of cells from a single column (i.e. A1:A14) in a separate worksheet BUT skip the cells from D3:AE3 that were blank instead of having them create blank cells in the column of the target worksheet
3 - Need to maintain a reference back to the original row of cells so that if their values change (i.e. D3 from source), the corresponding values in the new column (i.e. A1 in target) are auto updated.
Creating A Customized Accumulative Code Week (modified WEEKNUM) Formula
My company uses a customized accumulative code week system, as in the year 2000 to today is about 442 weeks with the year 2008 starting around week 416.
Here is how my formula works(or how I would like it to work), if the date (in cell F8) is blank, nothing is displayed, if there is a date (format 2008-07-03) and it falls within 2008, WEEKNUM+416(416 is a fixed reference in J4), if the date falls within 2009, WEEKNUM+416(J4)+52, if the date falls within 2010, WEEKNUM+416(J4)+104. I only need it to go from 2008 to 2010.
This way J4 is a fixed code week reference where 416 is added to each week number, but it does not work for years 2009 and 2010 as it does not add the weeks from the starting reference.
Here is a copy of my formulas:
Compute The FuTure Date When Start Date,Lead Date,Weekly Offs,Leaves And Holidays
First and foremost I would like to congragulate you on this wondeful piece of code in the below link...
The query was to get a future date excluding Fridays and Holidays...
I have a similar query and therefore I pasted this link...
I actually wanted to get a future date using a Dynamic two day off as my the offs keep on changing as well as incorporate Holidays and Leaves if any..
Now Holidays would be official Public Holidays and
Leaves would be taken by the employee..
The code needs to pick the Leaves + Holidays and different offs maybe even more than 2 offs...
Date Range: Reference A Single Date And Output Date Ranges
I need to create formulas that reference a single date and output date ranges. The objective is to have a person input a Monday date in any given month and receive a four weeks out worth of dates and ranges. For example: In a lone cell, the person inputs 10/13/08. Automatically, the sheet produces the next full week range: October 19 – October 25 in a single cell and also produces a cell for each date. Example: Sunday 19, Monday 20, Tuesday 21, etc…. It should look like:
October 19 – October 25
and then repeat for three more weeks. I thought I had it figured out until the month changed. The dates continued in October instead of adding a month. This report will be ran weekly, so simply adding a +1MONTH to some cells will not benefit me as I’ll have to change the formula every week. I want the formula to compute the data without any manipulation over the next several years. The only change will be the Monday date.

Date Countdown: Results Of The Number Of Days Between Today And A Future Date
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?
Compare Dates To Date Range & Return Date Based On Outcome
I need to compare three cells of random dates shown in Column E, F,& G with Row's H5:AK5, H7:AK7, H9:AK7 (the Dates to these rows is Static on row H3:AK3.) EX: ROW 5 has Start Date, End Date (1) and End Date (2). Compare Cell H3 between Start Date & End Date (1). If H3 falls between or equal to Start and End Date(1) then highlight cell H5. Proceed till AK3 (higlighting only the cells H5:AK5). Then compare cell H3 between or equal to End Date (1) and End Date (2) (higlighting only the cells H5:AK5). Then do the same for ROW 7 and ROW 9.
To make things a bit more difficult I need to have " WK#" in Row 14 (these WK# is on another tab called "Task" of the workbook) needs to be displayed in Row's H4:AK4, H6:AK6, & H8:AK8. EX: Compare Date in D15 between or equal to Start Date & End Date (1) then display Wk# in D14 in H4. Continue till all dates in
D15:Z15 are compared to Start Date & End Date (1) and WK#'s in Row D14:Z14 are inputted if applicable in Row H4:AK4, H6:AK6, H8:AK8. I hope this is not confusing. I can't seem to use the upload option so here is alink to download a jpg of the sheet

Vbcodes To Select Start Date Then Begins Highlight Until End Date
i need VB to select the start date of booking and autohighlights the "blank booking slot cells" until the end date that is input in Excel. You can visualise this as a room booking system. The left most column is the dates and the first row represents the different rooms type. E.g. if one guest books the Twin Deluxe No. 123 room on 23 Oct 2006 until 25 Oct 2006. We wish the VB can essentially help us identify the start date then begins highlighting the three slots for 23, 24 and 25 Oct on the column for the Twin Deluxe Room 123.

I need to then be able to enter a date into L6 and see a result in B6 and on and on. Then I need to be able to insert or delete a column and have the formulas still work in the columns with the heading "Days Remaining" and "Deadline"
Prevent Automatic Date Format When Referencing Date Cell
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.

Calculate Date Difference & Use Current Date If Cell Empty
i am trying to create a forumla in a column (D in my expamle below) to count the number of days between two dates. Knowing that col D will change everytime the @now date changes - but thats ok..
COL A COL B COL D
ROW 1 Open Date Closed Date Count of days open
ROW 2 4/1/07 BLANK CELL Formula result here
ROW 3 4/1/07 9/5/07 Formula result here
if col b has a date then subrtract col a from b and display the # result, if col b is blank then subtract col a from location I store the @ now date - say Col ZZ Row 99? so no matter there is a count of number of days in every row in column D
Convert Coded Date Into Common Format Date
I'm in the military and for maintenance we use the Julian date the format goes as follows "09357" that is simplified as 09 = the year and 357= the three hundred and fifty seventh day of the year. so 09357= 12,23,2009..
so on to my question:
how can i make excel auto convert the julian date to the regular date and vice versa?
Restrict Date Entry To Be With Date Range/Scope
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.
Count Date Cells Where Date Is Previous Month
I have a spreadsheet which I use to track when a work request is recieved, when we confirm the request and when we action the request. I have been trying to write some code to count the amount of requests, receipts and actions we have processed in the last month.
My first column shows who the request is from
The second shows date recieved
The third shows date we send receipt
The fourth shows the date actioned.
