Pick The Earliest Date From A Selection Of Dates

Jan 24, 2007

There is a speadsheet at work with a column which has a range of dates (from 18/05/2003 - date) which information gets drawn from every Friday. The information needed from the column is pretty simple but lengthy to expalin. For example...

[url]

As you can the dates are in no order...and need to stay that way. The information needed every week is shown here...

[url]

I have got the formula for the number of enteries between each date but strugling with the earliest date within the dates. I can do it manually by auto filtering the column and looking for the date closest to the earliest date but this is long.

The dates change on a weekly basis...just to throw a spanner in the works.

Pick Earliest Date For A Record From Row Of Those Records?

May 30, 2014

We have multiple work orders per opportunity, and each work order has a date. I have a sheet of these work orders which shows the work order #, work order date, and opportunity date. What I want to do is add a column which reports the work order date if it is the earliest instance of a work order for the opportunity (said differently, the first work order for the opportunity). Is there a way to write a formula to report whether the date of the row is the earliest date for a given opportunity, all in the same table?

Earliest Date From A Column Of Dates

Dec 10, 2008

I have a column of dates listed at the bottom of this post. I am looking to have a formula in a cell that gives me the earliest date from the column. I have tried Min() and Small() with no success. Is it perhaps the "AM" and "PM" that is throwing things off? A small example of the data:

11/21/2008 AM11/09/2008 AM11/09/2008 PM11/09/2008 PM11/10/2008 PM11/11/2008 AM11/11/2008 AM
and it should return 11/09/2008. Thanks in advance any and all.

Pull Out Earliest And Latest Dates Associated With Text String In Workbook

Feb 7, 2014

I'm trying to pull out the earliest and latest dates associated with a text string in a workbook.

Min Max dates example.xlsx

i.e. in this example, I want one column to display the earliest date associated with DU 145, and the next column to display the latest.

From what I understand, I need an array formula to do this and have written the following, which works:

=MIN(IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$6=A2,\$B\$2:\$B\$6))
(confirmed with CSE) - and the same for MAX.

Where I'm struggling is that DU 145 may be entered in the workbook as DU145, DU 145 or DU-145 and I need to take all of them into account. I tried:

=MIN(IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$6="du*145",\$B\$2:\$B\$6))

As this works in a COUNTIF formula in the same sheet. But this just returns a date of 00/01/1900. I'm new to array formulae & haven't really worked them out yet. Is there a way to do this? I assume it's something to do with the way I'm entering text as removing the wildcard * makes no difference.

Return Corresponding Data From Earliest Date

Jun 1, 2007

What I understand is that balls are drawn in each dated lotto draw and the numbers of the balls thus drawn are entered into a spreadsheet against the actual date of the drawing - and so forth and so forth for each successive drawing.

Here is my version of the question:

If I want to look up the LAST date that a specific ball was drawn, the array formula that daddylonglegs provided works 100%, but when I replace the MAX in that formula with MIN (to get the earliest date??), it ALWAYS responds with 00/01/1900 with the cell formatted as a date, or simply 0 if it is formatted as a number.

I made sure that the ranges did not include empty cells and still it gives me that answer.

I attach the same workbook with daddylonglegs' formula in column D and my "tries" in column F.

Returning Earliest And Latest Date For Unique ID?

Jun 25, 2014

I need an excel function to return the earliest and latest date for a particular/unique ID.

For example: In my sample workbook, the earliest date for all the columns with ID = 1 should return 11/1/2001 and the latest date should be 12/2/2011. If all the dates for a particular ID are the same, it should just return that date. For example, for ID = 2, all dates are 5/5/2010 so the earliest and latest dates should equal 5/5/2010. The earliest and latest dates have to be for each unique ID.

Array Formula - The Earliest Date After Today

Jan 16, 2008

I tried searching through the forums, but I don't exactly know how to word my question!

I have a workbook with two sheets: Meetings and MasterStatus

On the MasterStatus sheet, I want to use an array to look up the next meeting date for each taskID (Column C), referencing the Meetings sheet (Column E) to do so.

The formula I have so far doesn't work:

=MIN(
IF(
AND(
Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000>TODAY()-1,
NOT(ISBLANK(Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000)),
Meetings!\$E\$2:\$E\$3000=\$C\$7),
Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000,
0
)
)

Return Earliest Date Without Corresponding Blank Cell

Min If Function Doesn't Work For Earliest Date Lookup

May 23, 2014

I am having issues with a min if formula, even though i enter it as an array (ctrl +shift+enter), it only returns a zero.

The formula is supposed to return the earliest date from Raw data if the name of the company matches the one from the data validation ('Company lookup'!D3).

Dates are in column D and company name in column M

I checked, the dates are all formatted as dates

=MIN(IF(RAW!\$M:\$M,'Company lookup'!D3,RAW!\$D:\$D))

Loop A Comparison And On Match Return Earliest Date?

May 25, 2012

Using online examples I am usually capable to reconstruct whatever I need. However, it's the combination of things I need to do now, which has left me banging my head on the keyboard for days now

Here's the data I am working with:

Sheet 1:

Sheet 2:

And here's what I need to get done:

From sheet 1, select first ID entry from Column A.Find matching ID in Column A of sheet 2On match, find in Column B the earliest date belonging to the concerned IDCopy that earliest date next to the corressponding ID in Column B back on sheet 1Return to step 1 and repeat for next ID entry. Do until end of list (sheet1)

So the result should look as following on sheet 1:

The major issue I am having is the combination of step 3 and 5. Because it probably means something like moving through an array that's within an array through which one is moving. And I am just missing that bit of experience that allows me to make that thinking step. I just keep falling off if you know what I mean...

Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm

Jun 17, 2006

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?

Macro To Pick Up A Range Of Date To Filter On In A Pivot Table

Jun 25, 2008

When using a Pivot Table I regularly filter on known data specific to me i.e. WBS codes.

Column ‘A’ contains the WBS Codes which can be as many a 1000, however, I only need to filter out the 10 or so I require, and currently I uncheck all the records and manually scroll through the list to check the ones I require.

In order to speed things up I recorded a macro which works fine, however, If I need to check any new codes I would have to record the macro again, as I tried to edit the Macro and all it does is to un check all the other codes I don't need.

Is it possible to create a Macro that picks up a range of data that is then used to filter on. (i.e. only the records I require)

Changing Dates Based On Dropdown Selection?

Feb 12, 2014

I am trying to develop a worksheet that will adjust dates based on a selection from a drop down box. I can do basic formulas in excel

I am trying to get the drop down box in "Revisit Type" to include three selections ("Sanitation", "Spark", and "High Five"). Once the dropdown box is created I want to be able to make a selection and enter an initial visit date under "Initial Visit Date" then have the "Earliest Return Visit Date" and the "Latest Return Visit Date" automatically populated based on this information below:

Sanitation or Spark = 10-30 day window
High Five = 10-21 day window

I am at a loss . I have attached a sample of the workbook for reference.

Convert Text To Dates - Cannot Group This Selection

Jun 26, 2014

I am having an issue with converting what seems like Text to Dates. I am trying to group dates in my pivot table, but I keep getting the error "cannot group this selection". My dates are left justified, causing me to believe that they are text.

When I format the cells, however, the cells say that they are already in date format. When I try using Text to Columns in the Data Tab and selecting MDY, I get the error "You cannot move a pivot table table report or insert worksheet cells, rows, or columns."

Not sure what to do from here, as I would like to group dates by weeks.
