How to write a VBA code so that it would calculate the date of the previous Friday and from there Return the date exactly 1 month before; on any given day.

For example... today is may 8th

So if I run the code the dates returned for last friday should be 05/02/2014 and 04/04/2014 should be returned AS the DATE exactly a month from 05/02/2014

If there's one thing I really wish I understood more in Excel its how to use formulas to calculate days and times.

I'm looking for a formula that will give me the date of the last Friday in a month based on another date. I have the formula below at the moment that works quite nicely for March 2012 but not for any others. It's getting the 5 at the end to be more flexible that's got me stumped.

I am trying to construct a schedule of tasks to be done by certain dates. If the last day of the month is entered (say 11/31/09) in a cell, is it possible to find out the date for the third Thursday of November or the first Wednesday or the last Friday?

In A3, B3, and C3 I need to have the first Monday, Thursday, and Friday of the month. Here's the caveat, I need A3 to have the day that comes earliest in the month.

In this case, A3 would contain 8/1/08 since it's the first Friday, B3 would have 8/4/08 as the first Monday, then C3 would have 8/7/08 as the first Thrusday.

If A1 contained 7/1/08 then A3 would have 7/3/07 as the first Thursday with Friday and Monday following.

I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:

The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:

Need a formula for cell J27 that returns the date of the following Wednesday from a date in cell J2 that's a Wed, Thurs, or Fri or return the date of the following Friday for a date in cell J2 that's Sat, Sun, Mon, or Tue.

For example, when 05-29-08, a Thursday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Wednesday's date of 6-04-08. or For example, when 06-01-08, a Sunday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Friday's date of 06-06-08.

I need a formula to look at a date manaully entered into a cell (C6 to be precise!), then return the 1st of that month. I.e if i type 18/01/07 into C6, i need C7 to automatically show the 1st of Jan 07 or 01/01/07. As this field will always be the 1st of the month.

From the code below I need to translate whatever date is input to the First day of the month to pass into my VBA via the variable "SMth"

e.g. entered 12-03-09, returned 01-03-09

SMth = InputBox("Enter date of FIRST month ", "Format like 01-01-07", "01-01-07") SMth = "=DATE(YEAR(SMth),MONTH(SMth),1)" Cells(3, 8).Value = SMth The line

SMth = "=DATE(YEAR(SMth),MONTH(SMth),1)" is giving me an error, what should that line of code be? OR perhaps you have another solution to reach the same goal

If I make a sale between the 1st of each month through the 1th of each month I will be paid on the 31st of that month. If I make a sale on the 16th of each month through to the last day of each month I will be paid on the 15th of the next month. I need this formula to work for every month.

cell e has date of sale cell h has the returned value of the formula above

I am trying to come up with a formula that will give me the date in the cell right above the first cell that contains a value that is greater than zero.

I'm after a formula(s) which will give the start date and end date of a month using the month name. For instance, if cell A1 contained OCTOBER 07 the formula result for the start of the month would be 01/10/07 and the formula for the end of the month would be 31/10/07. I have plyed around with the EOMONTH function but this only workd when an actual date is entered.

The '085' is the 85th day of the year. I would like a formula that reads that part of the data, and return the month that day is in, in the "jan", "feb", "mar", etc. format.

I am in need of a vlookup formula that will return a value that corresponds to the latest day in a month. Example:

Column A had dates in format 1/3/2012 ect.... Column B is a $ amount Column C is a date in format Oct-12 ect...

I want column D to be a formula that match up column C's month in column A and return the $ in column B that corresponds to the latest day in the month. IN the example above it would returna value for Oct 31 (if there was one), Oct 30 next and then Oct 29 ect...

So if column A had October dates of: 10/1, 10/4, 10/17 and thats it in Oct then it would show the 10/17 $ in column B.

How can I search a range of cells that have a date entered by hand for a certain month and then sum the amounts given in another range of cells. For example, search several worksheets for payments made in September and then return the sum of those payments.

Is there any way to defined our own fiscal month. I have a fiscal year where the start & end date is different from the normal calendar. I have store the start & end date on the different column. What i need is that when people enter a date, it will look up to the table and return the fiscal month.It's something like If the value is >=column A and <=column B, then the fiscal month=column C(refer to the below table). But i have no idea how to make comparison on date value. what kind of formula i should use? And also how to write the code if i want to use macro to implement this?

Start End Month 09/21/08 10/18/08 Oct 10/19/08 11/22/08 Nov 11/23/08 12/27/08 Dec 12/28/08 01/24/09 Jan 01/25/09 02/21/09 Feb 02/22/09 03/28/09 Mar 03/29/09 04/25/09 Apr 04/26/09 05/23/09 May 05/24/09 06/27/09 Jun 06/28/09 07/25/09 Jul 07/26/09 08/22/09 Aug 08/23/09 09/26/09 Sep

get the current month name in a Cell A1 and Next month name in Cell B1. what formula should I used? This will be a part of the macro that I'm creating.

The macro will be use every 11th to the last day of the month so I want the formula to be dynamic enough to work in each day the macro will be use.

formula off here i use all the time relating to finding and sumproducts for specific months and years i.e.

Jan 2008, Dec 2007.. depending on these dates excel searched through a specified range and returned me any values i wanted like No. of occurences, totals, sums etc etc it was a sumproduct formula...

is there any way i could specifiy a date i.e. Jan 2009, which would search column a and return the date /and/or an account number in column b, only if the date was during jan 2009?

The reason i want this is to use a lookup on the account numbers to return specific items of info, but i only need the account numbers if they occurred in specific months which i want to choose.

In cell b2 I have a formula =text(today(),"yyyy") which daisplays todays date as a year, in cell b3 I have =text(today(),"mmmm") which displays todays date current month.

I have a column of Months and Years

January 2014 February 2014 etc

I need todays (current) month and year to indicate in a helper column next to the relevent month and year as a number 1 to use as a reference to return date from the row where the 1 is displayed, I have tried =if(and(b2=a10,b3=b10),1,"")) and it dosent like the fact that the year in the colmuns is entered as standard text, is there any whay to do this?

I have a workbook with two sheets. The first has a list of job positions open, columns designated to stages in the employment process and in these columns, my staff enter the dates that they completed a particular stage.

This has a great number of entries and they are increasing and decreasing every day depening on the amount of jobs available.

On the second sheet, I am trying to set up a table which shows the average working days it is taking to complete each stage, divided into the months in which the job position was opened (i.e. for positions opened in january, the average completion working days for stage 1 was X amount of days etc...)

I have tried using =IF(AND(Logical, Logical),TRUE,FALSE) but this doesn't return any info as the logicals will always be false. I tried the OR function, but that requires only one of the criteria to be true to return a value. What I need is for the formula to return a number of days between two dates, ONLY if the opened date falls in one month.

I am using the MONTH function in a formula. The Month value of an empty cell is returned as "1". Why is this? Is there any way to return a null value or zero?

I want to use a COUNTIF to return the sum of all the dates that fall within a given month/year. For example: E1 Contains the date July-2009

Column A has date entries such as July 3, 2009, July 18, 2009, August 4 2009. In F1 I want to return the sum of all dates that fall within the month of E1.

I have a workbook with two spreadsheets in it. On the second sheet there is a large table, which column headings are months and years (e.g. Jun-07 Jul-07, Aug-07, Sep-07....). I was trying to write an excel vba code that would search the first row (column headings) to find the current month and year, and copy the corresponding column along with two previous columns (months) to the first sheet. I would like to have a code that will be able to do this in Jan-08, Feb-08, or Jan-09 as well.
