Lookup Query - Occurrences: Create Another Worksheet With The Months Of The Years Listed Down Column
Oct 16, 2008
I have a table that lists the months of the year down from cell A2:A13, and days of the week along row from cell B1:H1. The data in between (cell B2:H13) is pulled through from elsewhere in the workbook and is in number format.
What I basically want to do is create another worksheet with the months of the years listed down column A, and in column B, for each month, I want the first day of the week where the value in the original table is more than zero, and in column C the second day of the week where the value is more than zero. I really hope that makes sense, was quite difficult to explain!
I was asked by a colleague how they could put a persons date of birth in one cell, todays date in another, and return their age in years and months. Accuracy to within a month. This is what I gave them.
=TRUNC((B1-A1)/365.25)&" Years "& ROUND(((B1-A1)/365.25-TRUNC((B1-A1)/365.25))*12,0)&" Months"
Is there a way to show in excel that something feel within a specific time frame? An example being if I want to see the amount of time it took to close a customer service ticket. I would take the closed date minus the raised date, but then I would like to show in a cell it was open from Feb to Mar 2011.
I have two columns with dates (and times) in that I am trying to define how many days, hrs and mins have elapsed i.e. A1 has 12/12/06 21:00, B1 has 17/12/06 21:00. C1 has B1-A1 and is custom formatted to show as dd"days" hh"hrs" mm"mins". In this case it will therefore show as 5days 0hrs 0mins. Which is correct.
However, if more than 1month has elapsed then the format m"m" d"days" h"hrs" m"mins" does not work. For example 17/03/06 03:00 to 20/12/06 07:00 shows as 10m 4days 4hrs 00min, which it clearly isn't.
I know the reason it does this is because it calculates the difference between the two times and adds that to it's 0 value, which in my format is 01/01/1900 00:00. therefore when it adds 277days (the answer) it becomes 04/10/1900 04:00, so my formatting is just calling the month value ('10') and the day value ('4').
I understand the reason it does this, 277 days on from 01/01/1900 is indeed Oct 4th, but 277 days on from 17/03/06 is not 10months and 4 days as there are different length months in between. It also seems to add a month on, possibly because the format for 'months' is between 1 & 12 and therefore cannot begin at 0?
Does anyone know if it's possible to force excel to work out the correct number of months and days have elapsed between two dates and not apply it to 01/01/1900? Or any other possible solution, maybe with a different custom format?
I need the VBA script in excel that will do a SQL Query, for this case I need to select a value where there are 2-3 tags and between certain period then display the result as a table in a worksheet.
Example I have a database with 3 types of tags "Tag A", "Tag B", and "Tag C", and each tag have a value with different timestamp. the database looks like this:
No. Timestamp Tags Value 1 1-Jan-2010 Tag A 18 2 1-Jan-2010 Tag C 20 3 2-Jan-2010 Tag A 20 4 3-Jan-2010 Tag B 17 5 3-Jan-2010 Tag C 19 6 4-Jan-2010 Tag B 18 7 4-Jan-2010 Tag A 20 8 5-Jan-2010 Tag A 22 9 5-Jan-2010 Tag B 18 10 5-JAn-2010 Tag C 20
See attached. (I added in some arrows for the first month so it is easier to follow the logic)
I am working with monthly revenues. Revenues are earned in a specific month but only a % is received in that month and over the next 4 months. I need a formula that will spread these revenues earned in 1 month over the next 4 months.
Currently, I have a complex Index/Match formula which works until September. September, October, November, and December do not work correctly because once the months roll over from month 12 (December) back down to month 1 (January), my formula cannot recognize the range.
Essentially, I need the formula to return the correct amount that is being paid, even across different years.
I don't know if my formula can be modified or a new formula would be more efficient.

ith the example below, i am having a problem with the calculation of Total Month. If i put Dec 31 2012 in A2 the total month is 10 BUT if I change the A2 to Dec 30, 2012 the total month is 11. What i am trying to do is to calculate the number of months only disregarding the years. example August 15, 2010 and January 16, 2013 i need to have total months of 5 months only.
I have a start date dd/mm/yyyy, and require a formula that everytime a spreadsheet is opened, based on the current date, to calculate how many years, months and days have elasped yy mm dd since the start date...
I would like to calculate the number of years and months that have passed since a certain date. Would like it in a number format so I can pickout those who have gone reached 5 year increments during each month.
Such as someone reaching 40 injury free years in June of this year I can let them know.
I am looking for a formula that will return the number of months (periods) between two dates, ignoring days and years. Using the above dates, which cannot be changed, the result needs to be 63. The formulas I have tried keep returning 64 because my later date is at the end of a period, and my earlier date is at the beginning.
I am looking to create a formula to get the initials of a name, where the the last name is listed first, followed by a comma. Now, the names could be full names or initials.
So, it could be something like: Smith, John R - result would be JRSSmith, John Robert - result would be JRSSmith, John Robert Michael - result would be JRMS There were similar formulas that I found here, but these only got the last letter of the last name - in this case the following formulas would have resulted (with the above examples) in: JTS or the last example with Michael, JLS.
I have a csv file on another drive on the network that i need to query. I believe that ms query would be the best way. I know that a DSN needs to be setup but this macro will be used by various users who wont know how to do that. thus I would like to create one via VBA every time the task needs to be run. I haven't a clue how to do this and i need it to be explained to me in general terms with words of one syllable!
I use Excel 2003 & I am trying to design a worksheet to keep track of signs I make & their order numbers. I want the names listed alphabetically. When I add a new name & I arrange the column alphabetically, the columns with the order numbers do not relocate along with the names column.
I have seen in the forums where lists are created by refering to column values in other worksheets.If you create a list by entering text values can you make other lists dependant to those values and can those lists also be made up of text lists?
All the examples I have seen here use lists that exist in some other worksheet
I use lists which use text values directly and not from a worksheet. I'm wondering how to make a secondary/sub list dependant on each value selected so say if text value "A" is selected in list 1 then this only allows the list for "A" to be available for list 2 in its corresponding cell (the next one along)
In Sheet1 are unique VM entries (Column A) which have a Group (Column B), Time (Column C) and a Reference (Column D) which can be same for other VM entries. In Sheet2 are the unique Reference Entries (Column A) which need Group (Column B) and Time (Column C) entries populated from Sheet 1. Multiple occureneces need to go in one cell, I realise this is not the best idea, but for this purpose they need to be and seperated by a comma or semi-colon.
In B2 I've used this formula: =INDEX(Sheet1!A1:D11,MATCH(A2,Sheet1!D1:D11,0),2) Which partly works, but only returns the first occurrence of H1 on Sheet1. I need all occurrences (i.e G1;G4;G8) returning for B2.
I can only think that some VBA script may be needed but I'm not really an expert in this area. In the full spreadsheet there are hundreds of rows and multiple entries, where Group and Time need to be populated on the second sheet
