VBA Code To Convert Dates

Feb 15, 2010

I received a solution to a question recently whereby I was instructed to use the text-to columns function to solve a problem I was having with a column of dates.

Convert Dates To Another Format

The solution provided was;
Select Data > Text to Columns > Next > Next > Column Data Format > Date.

The solution works fine when performed manually but if you perform this function while recording a macro, the crucial piece that changes the date output is not captured by the recorder so when you run the macro nothing happens.

To expand on how I recorded it, after starting the text to column dialogue and pressing Next twice, the dialog provides me with a drop down selector where I am able to change the date format from the default DMY to the desired MDY which - when selected manually - fixes my problem. However, when I record a macro while performing this action the date format choice I made is not being recorded in the macro output so when I try running the macro later on the original data, nothing happens.

The recorded macro ends up looking like this; ....

Excel 2007 :: Unable To Convert Text Dates To System Dates

Oct 21, 2011

I am in strange situation where I have a data with Invoice Dates. These dates are in Text. However, when I convert it into reall excel dates. For some reason the dates do not come right. convert my text dates into excel real dates. I did a lot of google search and apply these three methods but all of these gave me strange result I was not expecting. These are the methods I used and the result of each method.

Method 1 : Using Text to Column Wizard (Excel 2007)

I highlighted invoice column and went into text to column wizard. I clikced on Date button, and selected MDY format. Strangely enough, my result was day, month and year i.e. DMY which does not seem right.

Then I press Control ~ on this data as shown in second view.

Inv DateMDY09/22/1122/09/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/201108/31/1131/08/2011

control ~ (overview)

Inv DateMDY09/22/114080808/31/114078608/31/114078608/31/114078608/31/1140786

2nd Method - Using formula to convert text date to real dates When I used formula, I get the following result. As you can see, formula is converting text dates into different system dates than the first method.Further strange things is when I take these system dates i.e. 4283 and in 2007 excel format use "Short Date" the same system date gets converted into wrong year as shown in the second view.

Inv DateFormulaFormula Result09/22/11=DATE(MID(B2,7,2),MID(B2,1,2),MID(B2,4,2))428308/31/11=DATE(MID(B3,7,2),MID(B3,1,2),MID(B3,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B4,7,2),MID(B4,1,2),MID(B4,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B5,7,2),MID(B5,1,2),MID(B5,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B6,7,2),MID(B6,1,2),MID(B6,4,2))426108/31/11=DATE(MID(B7,7,2),MID(B7,1,2),MID(B7,4,2))4261

2nd view - system dates are getting converted into 1911

Inv DateFormulaFormula Result09/22/11428322/09/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/191108/31/11426131/08/1911

Similarly, I tried other methods or copying blanks etch but none seems to convert text dates into real (system dates).

Convert List Of Dates To Count No. Of Dates By Week

Jan 27, 2006

Basically I have 2 columns each with a list of dates in no particular order (and containing blank cells too), one planned date column and one actual date column.

What I need to do is plot this on a graph, and since the number of dates has no set limit and I dont want to have to plot maybe 100 dates on the x axis, so i want to group them by week before plotting them, i.e. 10 dates for week ending 10th jan, 25 dates for week ending 17th jan etc

I have a pivot table that counts how many of each date occurs, i.e. 10 x 2nd jan, 7x 3rd jan etc etc but it does not split them into weeks.

im sure theres an easyish way of doing it so i can get the 2 lines on the graph for no. of planned dates each week and no. of actual dates each week, i just cant see it.

Jun 29, 2008

I import data from my works server and dates are represented in text. example text format is yyyymmdd/19790310. What I'm trying to do is add and subtract from this date. I was trying to utilize formula and havent got close. I have a couple of parameters:

In column L I would like to represent the following

if column "B" is "B" add 35 years to column "J" "
if column "B" is "C" add 30 years to column "J" "
if column "B" is "d" add 30 years to column "J" "

Column "M" I would like to find the difference in column "L" and "C" I know days will be difficult it can be represented in years and months only.

I have no preference on whether I use VBA or a formula but have failed on on formula and was attempting to use VBA Case method but no success. I have 10000 rows of information and am open to any ideas attached an example of my data.

Convert Dates To Text ...

Sep 12, 2008

I have a columns with dates such as 10/24/2007. The next column has a count of widgets made that day.

I tried creating a column in between the two that would show only the Month and Year. I intended to base a graph on the converted dates and count, to show how many widgets were made a month. But

the graph breaks down the count to the individual days, ignoring the conversion. Is there a way I can create a column that will literally take the date number and leave only a text in its wake? So that when I slect the latter two columns, the graph will only show the months and counts in that month?

Convert Dates To Another Format

Feb 15, 2010

I have attached a sample of the raw output of some call records from our telephone switch. My problem with the date data is twofold; first of all it outputs it in mm/dd/yyyy format, or so it appears. But when I try to change the format to mmm/ddd/yy Excel always interprets the 2nd pair of digits as the month instead of the first two. For example,the following 2 calls are from Jan 1st and Jan 2nd respectively;


but excel always treats the 2nd record as Feb 1st. I have read numerous posts from people with similar problems but I can't get any of their solutions to work with my data.

The second problem is that on the 13 of each month the phone switch suddenly stops putting a leading zero in front of the date making the data totally unreadable to Excel apparently. Again, I read a post of a similar problem but can't get their solution to work. My ultimate goal is to reformat the date data so that it is displayed as; ddd mm/dd and leave out the year entirely. Ex. Fri 02/12 as in today...Friday, Feb 12th. I really don't know if the problem is with the data or me at this point.

Macro To Convert Text 'dates'

Jul 21, 2008

I am trying to convert text 'dates' like Sat. 1/05/2007 to real dates. I need to find all 'date' cells in range B4:B100 (they are filled in yellow), strip off the offending text (i.e. Sat.), and use DateValue to turn the rest into a proper, numerical date in the ddd mm/dd/yy format, arial, bold, 10pt, and centered in place.

I've spent days trying to write this macro. I've had help from experts in forums, but whenever I need to make any slight modification, a trainwreck ensues. Please see the code below.

Convert Non-US Dates To US Date Format

Dec 9, 2006

I am parsing a string which contains (European) dates:


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!

Convert Text To Dates - Cannot Group This Selection

Jun 26, 2014

I am having an issue with converting what seems like Text to Dates. I am trying to group dates in my pivot table, but I keep getting the error "cannot group this selection". My dates are left justified, causing me to believe that they are text.

When I format the cells, however, the cells say that they are already in date format. When I try using Text to Columns in the Data Tab and selecting MDY, I get the error "You cannot move a pivot table table report or insert worksheet cells, rows, or columns."

Not sure what to do from here, as I would like to group dates by weeks.

Convert Dates To Text Format Using A Macro

May 16, 2007

Is there a way I can convert dates to text in a CSV file (opened via excel) using a macro?

Currently I have excel recognised dates in the first column of the format dd-mm-yyyy and a corresponding values in the second columns.

I know once I have the file open I can enter the following formula in an adjacent coloum "=text (A2, "MMM-YYYY") but I need to change the format in the existing date feild and not create a new coloum. Sure I could copy and paste the new formatted dates into the cell, but in terms of what I need to do, this is not practical as I several of these CSV files that I need to query and extract data from daily using a macro.

The macro is not currently working because the date format is wrong. I need it to appear as MMM - YYYY. When you view the date in excel it must appear like this (as it would appear in say microsoft word) and not with the underlying date format.

Excel 2007 :: Convert Dates And Times In A Column To Numbers

Aug 11, 2014

I have a column in my data set that consists of dates and times in this format: 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM. I am trying to convert these dates and times to numbers so that I can actually use these values for calculations and regression analysis. When I click on one of the cells, I get a number that is revealed along with decimals. For example, the cell with 2014/08/02 01:46:49 PM had a stored value of 41853.574. I tried to highlight the entire column of dates + times and click on the format cells button. I selected the number category under number but that did not work. I also tried to use the =DateValue(Cell #) function but that did not allow for distinguishing between the same date but different times.

What are my options for converting these dates and times to numbers that I can work with? Is there a way to get the entire column of dates + times to show each cell's numeric stored value?

Excel 2010 :: Convert Numbers To Dates Automatically In Workbook?

Mar 19, 2012

2- because it should work in all cells of the workbook, the macro must make changes only in the cells with absolute numbers (ex: 1223) but must not change if in the cell there is a date like 12-may-2012 (numbers with hyphens).

This is my function:
