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; ....

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 Imported Text Dates To True Dates

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.
Convert Numbers, Representing Dates To Actual Dates
I get a spreadsheet every day that has a column of numbers that contains dates that are not in a date format. Is there a way to convert these numbers to a date format?

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 Text
I need to convert values in column A that Excel has erroneously formatted as date, to text.

14/9/5281 should be 5281149
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.
Macro To Convert Text 'dates'
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
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!
Automatically Convert Dates To Xx07 Format
Is there a way to find cells that have a date in them that has a text digit with a 2 digit year to 'xx07' rather than having to click on the error and selecting it manually.

Anyone know how to do this?
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 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 Text Strings To A Code Or Number
In column A and B I have text representing an Entity and its Intercompany,
respectively. In column C I have concatenated the two. So now in Column C,
for example, I have "BillTom" in row 1 and "TomBill" in row 900.
I need Excel to convert the text into some sort of code, ASCII or number
that shows they are EQUAL. I need something that shows "TomBill" and
"BillTom" are the same thing, just in a different order.
I cannot build an IF formula or use Find/Replace, as I will have thousands

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 @ http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/autofilter-vba-dates.htm but still get the same result ???

Filter Macro Code For Dates
I have a set of data that I need to sort and filter and create pivot tables with 2-3 times per week. Example data sheet attached (confidential data removed). I will insert the code that I am using for reference. The issue is that when the data is filtered for 'Approved Timesheets' I need the filter to be based on 2 criteria; If myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 21) <> "Approved" Then If myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 44) <=StartDate And myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 44) >=EndDate Then
The first If statement works fine, but the second appears to be ignored?? I have tried to colour this part of the code blue to make it easily visible.

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.
Conditional Format Dates In A Calender When Matches Dates In A List
Hi Guys, This has been bugging me for a bit now and I just can't sus it...
I have a sample perpetual calender that I have been modifying to fit my own purpose. The calender part works fine.
I have beside that a column for holidays, etc and then a another column for other events.
When I put the date in the holiday or events columns I would like the date to be highlighted in the calender above (different colour depending on which column it came from).
The formula I have been playing with (no success) is:
=MATCH(DATE($R$2,1,C8),$I$41:$I$65,0) - This is the Formula for the 1st column of dates.
The 2nd formula is similar, just changes the column it tries to draw the MATCH(DATE.... from...
Although this formula works fine on the sample spreadsheet. When I enter the formula on my sheet, it doesn't seem to work...
I have attached the spread sheet that I am working on.
Dates Pivot Table US Format But Source Dates European
there are a multitude of issues with US date formats when you're not in the US but I've run across one that I can't figure out.
I have a source table that has approx 5000 lines on it, everything looks correct and all the dates are in the correct (Australian) format. However when I use it to make a pivot table, any dates that are before the 12/m/yyyy gets changed to the mmddyyyy format in the pivot table only, all the source dates are still correct.
Search & Replace Real Dates & Text Dates

Things I have already tried: Window methods, such as minimizing the workbook that contains the macro, activate next, etc. Also putting the macro in Personal.xls and retrieving the values from the other file.
Where it hangs is right after the first workbook in the folder is opened. I tried to get it to select A1 in the active sheet but that cell is not selected in either the macro workbook or the newly opened workbook.

Count Working Days Between 2 Dates, But Return A Zero If The 2 Dates Are The Same Day
Today I am having a very annoying problem that really has me stumped – I need to work out the lag between a Due Date and Delivered Date
But as people sometimes manage to deliver on the Due Date it needs to show a zero (as in they got it in on time) but using the formula below the result is a 1 and I want a zero
Can anyone help me please? I have tried putting assorted -1s in to the formula and it looks like it might work until I copy down and find that if a person delivered one day early the result shows -3 for example!
Add To Dates Based On Criteria & Flag Overdue Dates
I have a very large Excel spreadsheet that is generated through an Oracle application at least once a month at work. I would like some code (either a worksheet function or a VBA) to check and report the following. If the frequency in column C is "Monthly" or "Weekly" just go to the next row. If the frequency in column C is "Annual", add 183 days to the date in column B; if it is "Semi-Annual", add 92 days to date in column B; if it is "Quarterly" , add 46 days to the date in column B; if the frequency in column C is "2-Year", add 365 days to the date in column B. Once the check has been made; I need the new total or date that was calculated checked against the date the report is being run (system clock date). If the date or total days is less than today, a new worksheet, titled "Late" needs to contain that row of data. If the date or total days is greater than today's date, just go on to the next row. I've attached an example worksheet.

List Matching With Dates: Using Dates As Filters
I want to see if the people on list one are on list two. I need to come up with a formula that gives TRUE for each person on list one who is on list two and false for each person on list one who is not on list two. Several caveats: 1) there are people on list one who aren't on list two and vice versa, 2) the people have several defining characteristics which need to be met, and 3) dates are involved.
With respect to point three, TRUE should only appear if the people on list one are on list two and if they were employed by the organization on a specific date (ex: 3/5/1996); in order for the TRUE statement to appear in the G column, the person should not only be on list two but also be employed on a specific date. The specific date should fall within the start and end employment contract.
Check If 2 Dates (or Any Dates In Between) Fall In Tax Year
I want to create a function that will check 2 user input dates (and anything in between) to see if it lies in a defined tax year. I will define the tax year in Cells A1: 6/4/2009 and A2: 5/4/2010 and ask the user to input dates in Cells B1 and B2 to check if any of these dates (or anything in between) falls between A1 and A2.
For example: Tax Year is 6th April 2009 - 5th April 2010, Cell A1 is 6/4/2009 and A2 is 5/4/2010. User inputs 2nd March 2009 in Cell B1 and 10th May 2009 in B2. Because the 10th May falls in the tax year the output should be "True". I can Excel to check one user defined number (Cell B1) using this =IF(AND (B1>=A1,B1<=A2),"Yes","No") but not sure which route to take to check 2 numbers B1 & B2 and anything in between.
Sort Dates That Include Non Valid Dates
I've searched the forum prior to posting, but have not found exactly what I need and am not familiar enough with macro code to modify based on an existing post.
Here's what I'd like to do: I have a worksheet with columns "A" through "J" which contain production scheduling information. Column "H" contains an estimated completion date - I need a macro to sort the rows base on the completion dates (in ascending order) when I request the macro to run - I'm attaching the macro to a button control. One concern is, the column contains some excel default dates of 1/0/1900 that I don't want to include in the sort because they should stay at the bottom of the sheet, rather than at the top. Any rows with the 1/0/1900 don't yet contain information, only the default date based on the calculations.
Count Dates & String Dates After Given Date
The attached workbook has dates in column C, although some of these dates are just strings.
I'm trying to write some vba that will tell me how many of the cells in column C contain a date (or looks like a date) that is greater than (after) the real date in cell G1.
At the moment I loop through the cells in column C and can ascertain, which dates can be counted, then copy one row over at a time, but I'm looking for a slicker (perhaps one-liner) answer, perhaps by copying a block of rows in one go. The aim is to copy those rows to another sheet. There are many more rows than in the attached, and many sheets to process, and I have no control over the format of the dates/strings in column C. Currently it takes about 20 seconds to copy over the necessary rows, but I'm looking for it to happen much more quickly; current thoughts are to sort on column C (sorting on column C anything that looks like a number as a number - which has it's own problems!), have a count of dates satisfying the criterion (say using a worksheet formula such as COUNTIF or SUMPRODUCT, perhaps also using EVALUATE) then copy a block of rows in one go.
not very relevant, but the existing code is something like this which highlights rather than copyies the rows(included in the attached): ...
