When broken into individual cells, dates before the 13th of the month are recognised as "American" dates and display as "08/10/2005", "08/11/2005", 08/12/2005" etc. with automatic date format. Dates from the 13th onwards are left in general format as "13/08/2005", "14/08/2005".
I have written a macro that converts each date individually to its correct Excel serial number, but I can't help thinking that there must be a simpler way, and that I cannot be the first to have asked this!
I am using a CSV that has the date in Column A in the format of DD/MM/YYYY. When I open this CSV using a VBA comand the Format of the Cells in this col are then formated as either Date or General. The general format happends when the date cant be turned into US format and when it can then the date is turned US and displayd as such.
SO 14- Sep = 14/09/2007 as General 10- Sep = 09/10/2007 as Date
Im in Australia so the correct format is DD/MM/YYYY. Microsoft has issued a fix for this using Local:=True in the file open comand which is all good and well as it works unless you have office 2000 when it crashes. What would be the best way of fixing this, so that the Dates are all correct or the col is all the same format?
I am unable to change the date format in a column of dates. The cells have values that look like the following: 4/29/2013 8:59:12 AM. I want to change these to YYYY-MM-DD format, but no matter what I try the format will not change.
I have spent too many hours Googling and trial with mostly error in attempting this. I formatted the very first cell A1 for today's date =TODAY(); this is also dirrectly above the column with all the dates in it. I just want an entire row's contents to turn red if it is 15 days old or older. This =$A1<TODAY()-15 somewhat works, but it only turns the date cell red, not the whole row. It also makes blank cells turns red, which I would like to remain blank (another formula is needed I imagine).
how to convert the JD Edwards Julian date format into standard Gregorian date, and can it be done using VBA? Note that the JD Edwards Julian date is different than the standard Julian Date and uses 6 digits instead of 7.
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
I have a problem where i am just trying to do a simple copy of dates from one spreadsheet to another
18/03/2008 00:00 however when the its copied to the other spreassheet is changes to the US date formate 3/18/2008 0:00 I need to keep the format as date as the date needs to be the current day. How do i get this to remain UK
I have a long list of dates that are fomatted as 3-12-13 that I want to format under custom date as d-mmm-yy : 12-Mar-13. I tried to do this but it does not change. I tried to change it to a number and that didn't work either.
In D2 I have: =B2 In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
I have a column in excel which gets populated in the format "2/1/1980" when copied from a different source. I want a macro to run on this column and convert this in the below format. Required format: '02-01-80 (note the ' symbol before 02 which will keep it as text)
I need this macro to run on two columns and replace them with the required format. I can do a find and replace either in the sheet or through hard coding the VBA, but as the date format keeps growing, I would need to do this via code and hence requesting the same.
I have txtboxes in which I write date in format dd/mm/yyyy but if I want to put date in cell correctly from this textbox in need to declare event on exit -change format to mm/dd/yyyy and then it puts date in desired format which is dd/mm/yyyy and my regional settings are English(uk)
Is there a way to put any date format in textbox and in cell there will always be format dd/mm/yyyy or at least if date is entered in format dd/mm/yyyy that also in cell the same format is putted
In one excel file, i have a date , and i set this to "dd/mm/yy hh::mm am/pm" format. From another file i will open this file and i need to copy that date to this file. My question is , before copying i need to check it is in the "dd/mm/yy hh::mm am/pm" format using vba.
How do I change a date "10/01/2004" into a format like 20041001? I used concatenate(right(A1,4),left(A1,2),mid(A1,4,2)) but the function takes the serial value of the date as an argument and concatenates that . So I get a different value.How can I get away with it?
