Sorting By Date For Irregular Date Format

Mar 14, 2014

I have a dataset where the dates are in the following format:

19970803 = 3rd August 1997 (YYYYMMDD)

My aim is to sort the data into months and into 'turn of the month' periods.

-Is there a way to isolate rows using a search term like "****08**" for all the august entries?
-Likewise if i want data between 27th-3rd for every month is there a way to sort for entries between "******27 - *******03".

Excel 2007 :: Date Filtering - Change Date Format Supplied By Date Picker

Apr 24, 2012

I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.

I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).

When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)

So my questions are:

1. Is this due to the formatting?

2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?

Sorting Irregular Data From CSV File?

Jul 18, 2013

im looking for a way to sort some data exported from an old stock recording software. the system outputs the data as a .csv file but each item bought is grouped into a particular heading, a line is only generated if money is spent under that particular heading. i cannot make the software generate lines if no money is spent so the number of lines generated each period changes.

period 1
3202 fuel £3000
3203 PPE £250
3204 major units £5000
3205 planned maint £212
3207 unplanned maint £457
period 2
3202 fuel £2500
3203 PPE £120
3204 major units £1000
3208 storage £212
3210 windows £457

if the data was regular i could simply add the totals each month and divide to get the average.

what i am looking for is a way to auto sort the data onto lines by possibly injecting the missing headings with zero as the total spent.

Sorting Data By Date Within A Date Range

Dec 31, 2009

Hello, I have a question about sorting information using dates but using a range. I need this to sort when I enter a date range into the spreadsheet (the blue blocks on the attached spreadsheet). The factors in colum G need to be sorted by month and input into the yellow highlighted area in column B. There may be an easier way of pulling the data from the "Data" sheet but this was the best I could figure out. Overall, January (or any of the months)needs to have the January (or appropriate) factor that fits within the date range that was input but sorted properly based on the months listed in Column A.

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.

Retain Date Format For Input Entered As Date?

Mar 24, 2014

I'm using nested SUBSTITUTE formula to make some changes to the some of the data. I'm also using IFERROR to return the input if it does not find the criteria I have specified. I have lot of variations in my input data.

The formula works fine for all except for date format input.

Sample:

N90232Y09--->SUBSTITUTE(A1,"N","")-->90232Y09
12335--->12335
12/3/1923---->58936 (I want the date to be retained)

why the date format is changed even if don't specify any changes for it. I expect my IFERROR to just retain the input as it is.

Copy Date Into Text Box Retaining Date Format

Dec 12, 2007

I've created a group of user forms used for recording jobs and displaying details of jobs and have come up against a problem I think you may be able to help me with.

When the user creates a new record, I've written some code to stamp txtdate text box with the current system date and this information is then copied onto a sheet called Data into a specific column.

This part works fine and as the column is formatted to handle dates it displays fine.

However, when I pull the data back in, it displays the date as the serial number date, not formatted as dd/mm/yy. I've tried every fix I can find to sort this but none of them seem to work.

The code I use to pull the data in is as follows:

ComboBox1.BoundColumn = 11
txtdate.Value = ComboBox1.Value

The idea is that the user selects a job number from combobox1 and then the appropriate column is pulled into each txt box on the form.

At the same time, I'm trying to do the same for the system time as well. Unsurprisingly I have a very similar problem here and use the same code as above. I've tried formatting both date and time txt boxes in the userform, the data transfer code etc etc with no success.

User Input Date Not Kept In Date Format

My macro asks for a user input in DD-MM-YY format (which is the same format of all cells in the Excel worksheet).

I then instruct the macro to paste the string into cell A1 in 'TEST' sheet.

However when it pastes in the format is MM-DD-YY with the user input DD being the worksheet MM etc.

For example 06-04-14 becomes 04-06-14.

Sorting By Date...?

Oct 7, 2009

I have a column showing date DD/MM/YYYY. I want to be able to get a new column stripping out the days so that I can chart changes over a month rather than each day of the last 2 years. I have tried altering the cell format to MM-YYY although this shows the format I want when i run a pivot chart it will still create records for individual days. I then tried copying and pasting the above as text only. This results in the pivot chart sorting A-Z rather than by date.

Same Date And Day Sorting

Aug 17, 2009

1. I downloaded from my online bank a Excel statment file.
2. When I open it in Excel. The date order is wrong, it is newest entries first (top).
3. I need it the other way, oldest first. I get Excel to sort oldest to newest. Which it does, but....

When I have more than 1 entry on date, they are the wrong way around.

Example:
It should be,
01/06/09 10
01/06/09 105
01/06/09 200.....

Convert Imported Date / Time Data To Date / Time Format?

Jan 2, 2013

I have loaded a .csv file in which the first column contains date/times, e.g. 01/12/2012 00:00. How do I now tell Excel (2010) that this is in fact a date/time format? If I select one or more of the cells, click on the Number dialog box launcher and try to pick a suitable format tghe cells resolutely refuse to budge from being text (i.e. left-justified, still allows me to edit the 'seconds' component to a number > 60). Also which data type should I be using? The only one that appears to have a full date/time format listed is Custom (not Date or Time).
