Converting Date And Time From Odd Text To Standard Format?

May 10, 2014

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.

Converting Text To Military Date Time Group Format

Apr 12, 2014

I am trying to find a way to have excel recognize text data input as date/time.

[Code] .....

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

[Code] .....

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

Converting Text Date And Time To Serial Date And Time

Feb 21, 2013

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:

01/01/13 00001

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?

Loop Converting Date To TEXT Format

Jul 21, 2009

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!)

Option Explicit

Dim LR As Long, i As Long
Dim tempValue1
Dim tempValue2 As Date

LR = Range("P" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 1 Step -1

Set ActiveCell.Value = Text(ActiveCell.Value - 5, "YYMM")

Next i
End Sub

Converting Text To Date / Time?

Apr 1, 2014

I am trying to convert text in a cell from: 03/08/2014 2330 to a date that looks like this: 03/08/2014 23:30. Then I also need to extract just the time only and put that in a new cell.

I can do it in a few steps by using Data -> Text To Columns, formatting the date and time separately, and then putting them back together again.

Is there a 1-step way to do the original text to date/time conversion?

0h 00m 00s Time Format To Standard?

Mar 23, 2014

I'm getting a time data on the format "0h 00m 00s" but I can't convert it to a standard "00:00:00" format to properly handle it and I'm not so Excel savvy. I already tried looking for something on google but the formulas for similar issues "0h 0s" or "0d 0h 0h" are not working (I can't find a way to adjust them). For example: I'm have the following data on G3:

0h 37m 52s

and I'm using the following TIME/FIND formula:


but the outcome is "2:06:10" instead of "0:37:52"

Converting Times Stored In Date Format To Number Format?

Mar 31, 2014

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.

Macro To Auto-populate Date And Time In Text Format

Jun 7, 2012

I think there's a way to use Excel to automatically create a 5-day calendar. Maybe a macro?

The date format must be dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm and it must be in text format. If its June 9, 2012 at 6pm - the correct format is: 12/06/2012 18:00

I want to post 5 times a day: 09:05, 9:55, 10:45, 16:55 and 18:00.

Column A is where the date and time goes. Ideally, I'd enter in A1 the start date and then run a macro that would automatically populate the next 5 consecutive days with the specific times above (so 25 rows total in column A).

I have to save the file as a csv file, so the date and time format has to be in text or I'll get an upload error in Hootsuite.

Converting To Date Format

Aug 22, 2008

I collect data from a data historian and I'm having difficulty with a date format. The collected data is saved in a txt file and imported to Excel 2007.

The date returned by the historian is the following format

9/30/2007 8:45:18.000 PM

This format is not recongnized by Excel as a date format but as a text box.

How can I change this to a date format without having to change all the dates and times manually (over 10 000 dates)?

Excel 2013 :: Extract Date And Time Info From A Text Cell That Contains Text And Date And Time

Jul 19, 2014

I am using Excel 2013. Anyway, the first issue is that I need to pull a date and a time period from text. So, for example, if I see something like Sunday Prime Time 7/6/14 8:37PM, I would want to pull ONLY the "7/6/14 8:37PM" out of it. Each text box could potentially be different, so it might not always be in the same format as "Sunday Prime Time 7/6/14 8:37PM" it might only show just the date and/or the time without all the extra text i.e. 7/6/14 8:37PM. Some of the cells will have text, others might only have just the time or even just the date and the time. The only thing that I am worrying about in each cell is extracting just the date and time. If this is too much to ask of excel, I would be ok with extracting ONLY the time - 8:37PM and not the date, but I would much rather be able to get both the time and date.

THEN, onto part two of my question. After I would pull the dates and times, I need to compare them with each other. So, when I have the same date with two separate times on that date, I need to write a formula to show if those times on that date are less than 30 minutes apart. So, if I have 6 times on 7/6/14, I need to know if any of them are less than 30 minutes apart.

I would need to have the formula say something like "Problem" if the times on 7/6/14 would be 5:30PM, 5:48PM, 7:00PM, 8:00PM, 8:15PM, and 9:00Pm for example. I would like to see the word "Problem" since 5:30PM and 5:48Pm is only 18 minutes apart, and "Problem" after 8:15PM since that is only 15 minutes past the 8:00PM which is obviously under 30 minutes. The times that are more than 30 minutes apart such as 7:00PM and 9:00PM for example are more than 30 minutes apart from any of the other times that were extracted.

Converting? Format To Text Format

Sep 15, 2009

On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.

I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.

Auto Converting Numbers To Date Format?

Dec 20, 2012

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?

Converting Non Standard Dates

Feb 13, 2007

I'm a moderate user of excel with some experience but need help creating a specific if statment.

I have a column "A" that shows dates formated like this: 060115 (January 15, 2006). Because excel does not recognize this as a valid numerical date I need column B to show what year the date falls under. To complicate it I need it to reflect a seasonal year from April 1 YYYY, to March 31, YYYY.

So here's an example. Say I have a date in column "A" of 050612 (June 12 2005). I need column "B" to look at that date and determine if it's >040105 and <033106 and return a result of "2005". I then need the formula to calculate an answer for up to 5 years worth of returns.

how to set up this type of =IF statement?

Converting A Text File To .xls Format

Oct 21, 2008

I have received a large file of text and numbers arranged (loosely) in columns in a .txt file that I need to get into a usable form in Excel. I'm trying to use the Text Import Wizard but am running into problems geting the column breaks right as there are thousands of rows of data items. As soon I think that I've inserted the break line in the correct place I scroll down a little further to find an item that encroaches into the next column, and when I shift the break line to the right to accommodate this new item I then encroach on the items in this next column.

Keep Number Format When Converting To Text

Jun 30, 2009

I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.

Convert Imported Date / Time Data To Date / Time Format?

Jan 2, 2013

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).
