I'm copying data from another source to excel, and for certain date entries they come as text in the following format "On 14 May at 8:00". Is there anyway to convert multiple entries like this into a standard date format? With or without time is fine - just the date will do.
I am trying to find a way to have excel recognize text data input as date/time.
Where 02 Is the Date, 2020 is the time (military) Z is Zulu/GMT, MAR is Month and 14 is Year. I believe excel recognizes
But I have a spreadsheet (on a confidential system) with thousands of entries that I need to convert. Also, the people I have working for me are not remotely. I reject the idea of entering data that way.
I am also trying to keep the display the same format: ddhhmm"Z" MMM yy
I have a program that exports the date as 20120621 (4 digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day). I have tried =datevalue(cell) but it returns #value!. I have tried =today()-(cell) and it also returns #value!. Is there a formula or something I can do to covert this field to a date?
I import data from a program that exports dates and times as text. I have been successful using "text to columns" to separate the time from the date and then using =text(A1,"00:00")+0 to get the time to show as serial time but I'd love to be able to do the whole date/time string in one step. In cell A1 there is data that is general format and is in this format:
No matter how you try to format it, it is not a date or time. For this project I need the serial number for the date/time. Any formula that will format it as date/time and then allow it to show as a serial date/time?
I have loaded a .csv file in which the first column contains date/times, e.g. 01/12/2012 00:00. How do I now tell Excel (2010) that this is in fact a date/time format? If I select one or more of the cells, click on the Number dialog box launcher and try to pick a suitable format tghe cells resolutely refuse to budge from being text (i.e. left-justified, still allows me to edit the 'seconds' component to a number > 60). Also which data type should I be using? The only one that appears to have a full date/time format listed is Custom (not Date or Time).
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
I have a spread sheet with a date colume that reads: 2012-06-27-19 I need to have this read like 06/27/2012 but nothing I do is working I have tried to go to the formatting process and backing the hr:mm out and that doesn't work. I really don't want to go line by line to manually correct this issue.. HENCE ... over 2000 lines
Second question: If I have a column that reads 02/15/2012 and another column that reads 3/27/2012 how to a format a 3rd column to make it read total number of days between 1st date and 2nd date?
I have a spreadsheet which has the date set out like this: 20070101
If there any way i can change this to either 2007/01/01 or 01/01/2007? I have tried using the date format (in the cells) but it just comes up with ######## i tried expanding the cell but no luck, this is very importand that i do this as its for a customer.
I've been having a problem lately with Excel automatically converting all of the cells on my spreadsheet from standard number format to dates. I've created several spreadsheets for calculations and all the cells in the number formats that I wanted. It's been saved and actually reopened and used several times. I opened it this morning and now half of numbers are now converted to dates. I've had this happen several times on several different spreadsheets. Why is this happening? Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change?
i'm trying to convert a column (P) from date dd-mmm-yy, subtract 5 days, and paste value as YYMM using a macro. I've borrowed bits from other macros and producted this but it's not working (and i've played around with it to the point it doesn't make sense anymore!)
Sub ADD_REPORT_DATE() Dim LR As Long, i As Long Dim tempValue1 Dim tempValue2 As Date
Worksheets("Report").Select LR = Range("P" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row For i = LR To 1 Step -1
Set ActiveCell.Value = Text(ActiveCell.Value - 5, "YYMM")
I am importing data from my AS400 in Excel, the dates are coming into the spreadsheet as numerics. How do I convert these numbers into a date format? i.e. 3202002 should be 3/20/2002, how do I get the number to that format?
I have a database spreadsheet where it shows, the date and time a sale was made in 2 different columns, one for date, one for time (in Epoch format). What I need to do is convert this date/time to PST vs. the EST it's defaulted to.
I have a sheet with a list of dates in it that I wish to format to show the day as well as date and time. I am trying to do this automatically with a macro, below is the before and the desired after.
Before Format - dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm Appearance - 29/03/2009 00:30
After Format - ddd dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm Appearance - Sun 29/03/2009 00:30
This works fine when I format the cells manually, but when I try to format them via macro '29/03/2009 00:30' becomes 'Sun 29/03/2009 12:30' which is obviously a totally different time! Has anyone got ay idea why it might be doing this?
I have a Column of dates in this format: 5/19/2014 8:08:44 AM I am trying to get this to read 20140519 or yyyymmdd It doesn't matter what format I change to, it will not update unless I activate the cell and then tab or enter out of it. I have 3000 rows to convert. with this either by setting or VB Sub?
I some assistance with converting a date based upon a time in column A. I have a number of dates in column A as follows:
01/13/2009 11:50 AM 01/05/2009 09:14 AM 01/12/2009 05:30 PM 01/12/2009 02:30 PM 01/12/2009 01:45 PM
I need to convert these values to another date base upon the values in column A. If the time < 2:00 pm then leave date as is, if time > than 2:00 pm then add one day. The expected results in column B would be as follows
I have one column with as many as 50,000 or more rows. The data format for each row/ cell is unique as shown below ( date and time). I wanted to split the data as shown in "Formatted Data" below. Have Tried Text To Column formatting but didn't work right.
Raw Data: Formatted Data (2 cells): 2005/11/02 23:55:15.758 ==> 2005/11/02 23:55:15.758 2005/11/02 23:58:16.698 ==> 2005/11/02 23:58:16.698 2005/11/03 00:07:13.830 2005/11/03 00:10:14.971
I have a cell with both date & time "10/9/09 3:15" This is put in the current cell by formula which indexes two dif. cells, Now I am trying to copy this cell and paste into another book but like to have only date. How can I do that? Each time I try it gives me the time value in the pasted cell and I cannot even format it.
I have a Excel Dates & Times column where the time is not always used. In these cases the time is 12:00AM. Is there a way to Custom Formats the cell so that the time is only visible if it is not 12:00AM?
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
I have a spreadsheet where we will be inserting the Arabic Hijri date taken from a Customs document (bayan). On my spreadsheet I'd like to have a column immediately next to the Hijri date that would convert the Hijri date to the Gregorian date so both dates will be visible for our Arabic and Western personnel who will be using the spreadsheet.
