# Apply A Proper Date Format To An Entire Column?

Dec 3, 2008

I have a column (A) where there's a date in each cell. Currently it is formatted as category "text". All entries where initially entered as 'yymmdd', but using category "number". Beacause of that all zeros in the year disappeared, so now they are shown as "ymmdd".

Can someone show me/tell me how to convert all these dates from category "text", to category "date", using format "yymmdd"? I have tried again and again and again, but can't make it work. I have attached a sample of the sheet.

## Adding Dates To Column And Keeping Data Associated With Proper Date?

Jun 19, 2013

I have a column with dates and times, and an associated column with data for all the dates and times. I want to add every hour of every day to the date/time column, but want the data associated with the times to stay in the row next to the correct time. How would I do this? In the attached file, i want to make coulmns A and B look like Coulnds E and F. I have hundreds (if not thousands) of rows, so i need a way to do this easily. Also, the times are not all evenly spaced or exactly on the hour. I dont need the times to be exactly on the hour or spaced out evenly, but i would like to have at least one time from every hour.

## Conditionally Format Entire Row For Dates 15 Days Past Today Date?

Jun 11, 2014

I have spent too many hours Googling and trial with mostly error in attempting this. I formatted the very first cell A1 for today's date =TODAY(); this is also dirrectly above the column with all the dates in it. I just want an entire row's contents to turn red if it is 15 days old or older. This =\$A1<TODAY()-15 somewhat works, but it only turns the date cell red, not the whole row. It also makes blank cells turns red, which I would like to remain blank (another formula is needed I imagine).

Aug 2, 2014

I have amended the code but it's for columns. I want this formatting for entire row 4 only and not for columns. Because it's disturbing my program if there is any data using ':' sign then the same formatting is applied which I don't want.

The ':' sign is not changing to bold. I want to bold ':' sign too.

## VBA To Copy Entire Row If Date Exists In Column F

Dec 10, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that contains data that needs to be copied over to a new worksheet if it contains a Date. For instance, if a Date exists in column F on worksheet1, I want to copy the entire row's contents from worksheet1 to the next empty row on worksheet2.

As it stands now, the data ends on row 67 in worksheet1 and ends on row 221 in worksheet2. So, if there is a date in F30, I would like to copy all of row 30 and past it into row 222 on worksheet2.

## Convert A Text Date Into A Proper Date

Jan 9, 2009

I have a column of dates in thie format " January 5 03:09:36 2009" which i need to convert into a proper excel date that i can do further calculations on (adding up things, graphs etc based on dates).

Note the space before the month name. I thought about doing a left(cell,xx) to get it but that isnt going to work with the space infront and the variable length of month names.

I do not necessarily need the time included, it may be useful at some point if its easy to keep it as part of the data, if not i can live without it.

## File For Deliberations On Proper Entry Date Into A Retirement Plan

Dec 31, 2008

I work on an Excel file to determine property date of entry. While I have not completely worked out all of the bugs or the permutations or problems that may come up, I do feel that I have discerned an important part of the problem. The sheet where I set up my formulas and functions has the name 410a elig and coverage and should have a green tab.

To explain my reasoning; in this hypothetical situation, a company's plan has two dates of entry, January 1st and July 1st. An employee enters the plan on which of these two days follows closest or coincides with his or her attainment of 1,000 hours of service during the twelve months forming his or her initial eligibly computation period. If an employee starts work from January 2, 2005 to July 1, 2005, then that employee would enter the plan (provided he or she worked 1,000 hours during the initial eligibility computation period) on July 1st, 2006. If that employee started work from July 2, 2005 to December 31st 2005, then that person would enter the plan on January 1st, 2007.............

Some of the abbreviations or acronyms spelled out:
OYFDOH=One Year From Date of Hire; for now, the issue of leap years I will set aside
Month Function
Month=Month Function
JJ: January or July

OYFDOH MON JJ Year
8/7/2006 8 1 2007
1/2/2006 1 7 2006
6/1/2006 6 7 2006
3/1/2006 3 7 2006
8/1/2005 8 1 2006
6/1/2006 6 7 2006

## Only Apply Conditional Format If Cell Val > 0

May 10, 2013

I have a column in a sheet referencing data from a column in another sheet in my workbook. I want to apply conditional formatting on these numeric values, from red for lowest vals to green for highest. However the fact that my column is referencing cells that will not yet have data means that they are being pulled over as 0. I am not displaying zero values in cells but the zero vals are still being included in the conditional format. Is there any way to discount these zero vals?

## How To Apply Conditional Format To A Range With VBA

Feb 27, 2012

I recorded a macro in which I applied a conditional format to a range (the selection).But, when i replay this macro, the conditional format is only applied to the first cell in the range. This can be seen in the "Manage Rules" dialog of Conditional formatting, where the "applies to" column shows only one cell, even though a range of cells was selected by the code.

I set a breakpoint at the first line of code here, and confirmed that the selection is correct, and indeed it is, as in the immediate window, ?Selection.Address correctly gives "\$O\$6:\$O\$21".

"=O6/(O6+P6)>25%"
Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
.Pattern = xlGray16

[code]....

why the conditional format ends up only applied to cell O6 after the code runs?

"How can i apply a conditional format to a range of multiple cells, based on an expression, using VBA?"

Note that my range is within a PivotTable (but still, this works fine in the UI when i record the macro and the conditional format is correctly applied to the entire selected range).

## Apply Conditional Format On Several Rows?

Aug 12, 2012

I have a conditonal format of cells across Row 2 based on the contents of cell D2. The formula for the conditional format is

=\$D\$2="NONE"

The formatting applies to these cells:

=\$F\$2:\$G\$2,\$I\$2:\$K\$2,\$M\$2:\$N\$2,\$O\$2,\$T\$2:\$V\$2,\$X\$2:\$AA\$2

I would like to fill in the same conditional format down to 51 other rows but the formatting for each row should be based on the contents of its own cell i.e. \$D\$3, \$D\$4, \$D\$5 etc. How can I do this with code?

## Apply Conditional Format Only When Cells Are Active?

Mar 31, 2013

I was wondering if is possible to apply a conditional format rule to a range of cells only when certain other cells outside of the range are the active cells. eg row C4-J4 has a conditional format to identify duplicates from range C5-C10, but I also want the same conditional rule to apply separately and uniquely if the active cell falls within the next active range D5-D10. So basically only apply conditional formatting separately and uniquely as the active cell moves its way across the columns?

The dates that are in the colums are in different shape!

20-6-2007 11:00
18-Jun-07 08:00* ( where the * is set by another program )

The format I want is:

21-Jun-07 ( nothing more / nothing less )

## VBA Loop Through Worksheet And Format Each Column As Text, Or Date Based On Header

Jun 30, 2006

I am trying to figure out a way to condense my code (improve my code) Right now I am using a Macro in Excel to go through a workbook by selecting each column individually and if there is something in the header then formatting that column as text. The problem with the way I am currently doing it, is that due to size limitations on the VBA code, I can only select columns A to Z, and if there is more data in the worksheet it is not formatted. Also I would like the code to check the header and if the word date is in there, format it as a date instead. Also if there is a way to delete any invalid ranges in the workbook

Sub Format()
Dim VarFileName As String
Dim VarPath As String
Dim VarSavein As String
Dim wsheet As Worksheet
VarSavein = Sheets("sheet1").Range("C2").Value
VarFileName = Sheets("sheet1").Range("A2").Value
VarPath = Sheets("sheet1").Range("B2").Value
Workbooks.Open VarPath & VarFileName
For Each wsheet In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Sheets(wsheet.Name).Select
Columns("A:A").Select
