# Referencing Then Subtracting A Date From Another Workbook From Today Date

Jun 6, 2014

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.

## Excel 2007 :: Subtracting Date Of Hire From Date Of Termination

May 25, 2012

I am trying to calculate the length of time of employment. I am looking for a formula to subtract the date of hire from the date of termination.

My current example is:

5/24/12 - 11/3/10 = 568

There is a problem with my formula as the answer of 568 is currently meaningless. How do I convert this?

## VBA To Hide Rows If Date In A Cell Less Than Today On Workbook Open

## LOOKUP / COPY PASTE Into Another Sheet Within SAME Workbook With TODAY Date

Feb 10, 2014

Expanding this code to make it do the following:

1. Start w/ "RULE-Table" sheet,
2. Take note of "TODAY" date,
3. LOOKUP date in "RULE-table"
4. Locate Coordinates found in Col D of RULE-Table,
5. LOOKUP the data that resides in those Coordinates on the "PRODUCTION" sheet & COPY
6. PASTE data into "REPORT" tab C2 and E2.

Here's an example to visualize:

Code will do everything it needs to do within an Undisclosed OPEN file with several sheets. The reason the Workbook file name is undisclosed/undefined is because the file name will vary based on clients, so I don't want the code to be limited to look for a specific filename.

*The sheet names within this OPEN client file will always have the same names.

The sheet called: "RULE-Table" holds coordinates based upon "TODAY's" computer date.
For example: If today is JAN 4, the desired coordinates to pull data from are "B5" and "D10" from the "PRODUCTION" sheet.

"RULE-Table" sheet
A......B.........C................D.......
Row1.DAY....WK RANGE....QTR RANGE
2......1/1.......1...............B2,D7
3......1/2.......1...............B3,D8
4......1/3.......1...............B4,D9
5......1/4.......1...............B5,D10
6......1/5.......1...............B6,D11

Since today is 1/4, its rules say go to B2 and D10 of the PRODUCTION tab and collect the data

"PRODUCTION" (data source) sheet (within the same open file)
A.......B......C....D....E....F...
2.......2.................................
3.......14...............................
4.......13...............................
5.......20...............................
6.......62..............................
7....................76.................
8...................184................
9...................375................
10.................410................
11.................525...............

Last, the collected data from those 2 coordinates should always get pasted onto the "REPORT" tab into C2 and E2 in this example.

"REPORT" (destination) sheet (within the same open file)
A........B.........C.....D....E.....
2...................20........410......

## Prefill Text Box In Userform With Today Date But Allow User To Enter Unique Date

May 29, 2014

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.

## Date Countdown: Results Of The Number Of Days Between Today And A Future Date

Apr 8, 2009

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?

## Creating View By Filtering 2 Columns By Date (both Within 3 Months Of Today Date)

Mar 20, 2014

Trying to do a linkback from another post located here but not having much luck doing it: [URL]

I'm working with 2 date columns and trying to filter a view to only include projects with dates within 3 months of today's date.

I've attached a current working file of the data and the end result i'm hoping to achieve via a macro of some sort.

I've manually got it to work via formula by inserting 2 additional columns (highlighted yellow) which determine if the dates "YES" fall in this 3 month time frame of "" blank if not.

create a macro which does all of this automatically without modifying any columns if this is possible

## Stamp Cell With Today Date Without The Date Changing Tomorrow?

Feb 7, 2013

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.

## Excel 2003 :: Date Formula For If Given Date Is Before Or After Today Or If Nothing Entered

Jan 17, 2013

Cell B1 contains a date, then B2 contains a formula that says:

=IF(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2)

A1 contains a green tick and A2 contains a red cross.

What I am trying to add is that if B1 contains no date then B2 needs to be blank.

I tried using =IF((A1="",0),(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2) to get it to show a 0 if there was no data but this doesn't work.

I am using Excel 2003.

## Formula To Give Next Monday Date From Today Date

Apr 16, 2014

I have a formula

=AL260-WEEKDAY(AL260,2)+MATCH(AP260,{"Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday"},0)

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?

## 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.

## Date Picker In Form - Default To Today Date

May 16, 2014

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?

## Prevent Automatic Date Format When Referencing Date Cell

Aug 1, 2008

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.
