VBA Code To Convert Dates

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; ....

VBA Code Convert To PDF
This is my first time posting and though my knowledge of excel is very good - I sue it daily my knowledg of VBA is restricted to a macro that I've borrowed from former job. It basically puts data from a source file into a template file (both excel) and saves teh template with the specified filename. It does this for 40 different schools with different data. I send out these reports to schools as PDF reports and I'd like the VBA code to convert the files autmatically, within the same macro that creates them. So basically after running the macro I want to end up with 40 excel files and 40 pdf files.

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

Convert Numbers Representing Dates To True Dates
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 "A" add 38 years to column "J" dates are represented as TEXT
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.

Does Anyone Have The VBA Code To "Convert To Number"
Does anyone know the code to perform the function "Convert to number"? I have a problem where I need to change some "numbers" from an output sheet that are actually "text" format to actual numbers. Just changing the format to "Number" doesn't work - it may have to do with the fact that the numbers/text includes commas but I'm not sure why. But I have tried several times to change the format, and even though the format shows as being changed, code still doesn't recognize the characters as numbers. So I want to "convert to number" that excel does. With the numbers output the way they are as text, I get that warning (Green triangle) and I get the option to "Convert to Number". That works, so I tried to record the macro to see what the code would be, but that operation doesn't record.

Convert Dates To Text ...
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
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.

Convert Non-US Dates To US Date Format

Convert Dates To Text Format Using A Macro
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.

VBA To Convert To Number
I have a string of imported data which comes into an existing spreadsheet. It cannot be changed prior to importing as the data is provided by an external vendor.

When the data is imported into my spreadsheet the Error Checking tag comes on, after I select the cells where certain numeric data has been entered, stating that this is a range of Numbers Stored as Text. If I click on the Error Checking tag and select the Convert to Number option and then enter my VLOOKUP function I get the desired answer. If I do not convert the text to numbers then my VLOOKUP function does not work at all. The cell just displays the function text itself instead of the desired answer.

Here is what I am requesting:

AutoFilter Code Between 2 Dates
I am encounting problems with an AutoFilter which is run in a macro after the user has selected dates from 2 Date Pickers (DTPicker) on a user form. The filter is applied to 1 column in a spreadsheet containing dates in the formay "dd/mm/yy" and is supposed to filter dates =2 and between a range of dates as selected. The resultant filter is blank, if the macro is debugged at this point the date format for the 1st criteria is found to have swopped the "dd" & "mm" around but the 2nd criteria is fine. eg. user selected 01/07/07 and 31/07/07 the resultant filter applied is 07/01/07 and 31/07/07. I have re-formatted dates to Long as per the article on this site @ but still get the same result ???

Dim fDate, tDate As Date
Dim lfDate, ltDate As Long
fDate = frmReportMenu.dtpFromDate.Value
tDate = frmReportMenu.dtpToDate.Value
fDate = DateSerial(Year(fDate), Month(fDate), Day(fDate))

VBA Userform – Convert Number To Percent
In the attached sample (with macros enabled), you will find the problem when pressing the button “INDTAST DATA” (I apologize for the linguistic challenge, but the XL-sheets are in Danish… To relief – check the crash course in Danish below) and then entering some number in the two last textboxes (called “Forventet ændring i antal timer I næste kvartal (%)” and “Forventet ændring i omsætning i næste kvartal (%)”)… If you enter something there, the result will be multiplied by 100 in the worksheet.

I would like to be able to simply enter a full number – like 12 or 9,5– which will then be entered into the worksheet as 12% or 9,5% (and not 1200% or 950%)… I think the answer lies in inserting some code in the VBA code, when the macro writes the data to the worksheet, but you guys know more about it than I do...

I can, of course, enter a full number in the textboxes – followed by a %-sign, but that will slow down the process significantly as well as increase the risk of errors…

Virksomhed = Company
Kvartal = Quarter
År = Year
Branche = Industry
Fakturerede timer = Billed hours
Faktureret omsætning = Billed revenue
Timeforventning = Expected hours (next quarter)
Omsætningsforventning = Expected revenue (next quarter)
Indtast data = Enter data
