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.
How can I add a date stamp that will populate a field when text is entered into another cell but will not change every time I re-open the sheet. I have been using =if(B4="",NOW()) which changes each time though and as soon as text is entered it disappears. I want to capture the actual date that someone enters text into a cell and save that date in another cell???
Hi All, I want to set up a macro that will input a date stamp for the working day before this one. I have to input the status of dozens of meeting rooms everyday and the checksheets that I work from are from the previous working day (So on a Monday, I want the Macro to enter Friday's date). I wanted to create a quick macro to save myself the hassle of entering the date for every entry and obviously, if I incorporate the TODAY() function it will update every time I open the workbook and give me the wrong date.
I've been checking related threads and can't seem to find either a VB code or a function that'll enable me to do this (I haven't looked particularly hard as I'm at work ).
I have a little problem (but for me is like a break); I want, when I change some in a cell, in the other cell, show me current date. I try with "today()", but , next day when I open that workbook, in that cell, show me the date coresponding with the next day (normaly).
How ,I can rezolve this? I want to blocked that cell, only view, but no acces for change enithing.
So I have this sheet template to copy for various other sheets, and on A3-A1000, they contain dates from August 1st 2013 to whenever. Starting with A3 as August 1st. The problem is now, it's September 10th, and I would like A3 to be a week before September 10th. Then A4 would be September 11th. And so on and so forth. The dates also must only consist of weekdays and the dates must be hard coded. Is this possible? I have the simple code for copying over the spreadsheet, but I don't know the rest.
I am working on an Inventory Spreadsheet. I have need it to date time stamp that willpopulate a different cell /field when text are entered in a different cell/field and will not change all the previous dates entered on the spreadsheetevery time I re-open the spreadsheet. I formula I am using is =IF(E3<>"",IF(D15="",NOW(),D15),"")and it changes each time I open thesheet to do the inventory so I do not know the date of the last inventory. Iwant to capture the actual date that the inventory was completed in thesecond/different cell?
I have data going in to a small table which has some empty rows as that data is not yet available... My problem is, I need to sort this table in date order but with the date nearest to today's date at the top...
The sort function puts oldest at the top or oldest at the bottom which is no good for what I need...
how I can create a formula that would highlight the cell in a colour if the date was past todays date? This is what I'm doing - I have the expiry date of people's insurances. so e.g todays date is 8 th January, so if the insurance had expired 31.12.08, i would want the cell to be highlighted red. I think it may be an IF function but I cant remember.
I need to VBA code that will loop through the active sheet for all rows, column C2 through however many rows there are. Col C contains a date in the format: mm/dd/yyyy. I need the VBA to compare this date to today's date+30 days and if the date in C2, etc. is greater than today's date + 30 days, shade the row a particular background color (e.g., 3).
I am trying to automatically capture and record the date of a cell's last change in value (date stamp). I have an item price list and if a particular cell gets updated I want to automatically record the date of change of that cell. I realize that after I change cell A1 I could tab to cell B1 and enter Ctrl+; but if I have a hundred new prices to enter I don't want to do that (plus me or the data entry person might forget).....
I copied the code that was used to inserting the date when the cell next to it was updated, the original post can be found here: [URL]
The Code below will check a range of cells between c3 and c20 and if I make a change to the value in any of them, then the cell to the right of them will have the date inserted. I've had to modify the original code from the other post a little bit to stop an error appearing when I insert a new Row:
On the first example that was posted it all ran ok until until I attempted to insert a new Row, then it would put the date into about 5 of the cells to the right of where it should do and I received an error message with the usual Debug stuff on it. It would also delete my column descriptions that I had on Row 2.
Would it be possible for it to not auto insert the date on any new blank row that I insert?
What would be the correct range for me to get the code to work on c3:infinity....
Is it also only possible to enable macro's and code like this in the current document instead of every document that you load through excel.
I have a userform that completes various functions and updates cells when a single button is clicked. Can I add code to the the end to enable a cell to be updated with the time and date, say cell A1 for example? Also is it possible to have the (Windows) username in another cell (all users will be unique) so it will save Jo Bloggs for example? I know this is possible as a Worksheet function:
My goal on the form is simply that when you click the check-box, it will highlight the cell green and place the date in the cell comment, and then clear the comment and color when unchecked.
I have been successful with the exception that I can only place text in the comment, but not a date stamp or even a reference to a hidden cell. I accomplished a date stamp command on a button with "Sheets("Sheet1").Range("Q5").Value = Date" but am unable to do this in a comment.
Below is what I have currently. I know it is not clean to look at, but that is how I found it and didn't want to create more variables for troubleshooting
Private Sub CheckBox1_Change() Sheets("Sheet1").Range("Q4").ClearComments Sheets("Sheet1").Range("Q4").Interior.Color = RGB(255, 255, 255)
I came across a couple results that seemed promising, but the code seemed to have a different syntax and I couldn't make it work with my VBA newbie skill level (started yesterday).
I have a table with rows and columns, to record status of various activities. One of these columns is to record when an update to a cell in the row has been made. I would like a macro that would, when the data in a cell has been changed, to highlight that cell in a different color and enter the date the change has been made, in the update column "Last Updated" for that activity. This way I can see what cells have been changed and when.
I belive i have a simple date stamp problem, but i do not know the correct VBA to edit the code posted below. I would like to have a datestamp placed in an adjacent cell based upon a particular value. For instance, If Cancel is entered into cell a2, then b2 would gave the date stamp. or if Started was entered into a2, then c2 would have the date stamp.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then With Target(1, 2) .Value = Date .EntireColumn.AutoFit End With End If End Sub
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.
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?
Trying to automate the period part of the impt function
To calculate current value of loan i have the below formula below with the 3 being the current period
What i would like to do is for the period to be self calcuating from current date and the loan start date. I can return a value in days using start date - today() and aware month function returns the month number but stuggling to find a way to work out cumulative month from the start date.
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?
