If there's one thing I really wish I understood more in Excel its how to use formulas to calculate days and times.
I'm looking for a formula that will give me the date of the last Friday in a month based on another date. I have the formula below at the moment that works quite nicely for March 2012 but not for any others. It's getting the 5 at the end to be more flexible that's got me stumped.
I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:
The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:
I am trying to construct a schedule of tasks to be done by certain dates. If the last day of the month is entered (say 11/31/09) in a cell, is it possible to find out the date for the third Thursday of November or the first Wednesday or the last Friday?
I need to work out how to get the last (or most recent) Friday date. Suppose today is 14/02/2013, then the previous date is: 08/02/2013. If today is 15/02/2013, then I just want it to be 15/02/2013 as it is Friday.
I have dates listed in column A indicating the day an action was performed. In column B I need to have the date in column A changed to a Friday. If the date in column A is not a Friday, then the date in column B needs to fall back to the previous Friday. For example, if the date entered in column A is today, Monday August 7, then the date in column B that I would be Friday August 4. Can anyone think of code that determine this and place the value in column B? Currently I use vlookup to go to another sheet where all the possible dates are listed with their respective Fridays, but this slows down the calculation worksheet as the file is quite large.
Let's say I have thousands of employees, but I need to determine who worked for me during a particular date range, and all I have to go on is their start date in one column and their end date in another column.
A1 contains beginning date of employment B1 contains ending date of employment C1 contains specified beginning date (criteria) D1 contains specified ending date (criteria)
On my timesheet, there is a button that, when clicked, allows you to select a pay period end date. Our pay periods end every other Friday. When the button is clicked, it opens a form I designed that has a listbox that I manually entered every pay period for the year into. Here is the code I used:
What I'd like to do instead is have VBA populate the listbox (or combobox or what have you) dynamically, by using a reference point (say, the first pay period of the year) and then populating every other Friday from that point forward. Also, it would be great if it could reference the current date as to only list pay period end dates in the future (or even the two prior to todays date, and then maybe 3 or 4 pay period end dates in the future).
Need a formula for cell J27 that returns the date of the following Wednesday from a date in cell J2 that's a Wed, Thurs, or Fri or return the date of the following Friday for a date in cell J2 that's Sat, Sun, Mon, or Tue.
For example, when 05-29-08, a Thursday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Wednesday's date of 6-04-08. or For example, when 06-01-08, a Sunday, is entered in cell F2, I need cell J27 to return the following Friday's date of 06-06-08.
ive created an excel spreadsheet with expiration dates in one row and im trying to write a code which will pull out all information in the column if the expiration date in a certain row is within 90 days of the date the excel file is accessed
I have about 20 files with check posting dates stretched over several years. Maybe a million checks total. The company uses 13 four week periods each year, not a calendar month/year. I need to look up each posting date and attach the correct period to it.
I could do a VLOOKUP with one row for each day of the year, but that would require 2 x 365 row's for just two years. There must be a more elegant way, maybe using an array or some IF statement.
Attached is a sample file, xlsx, with the perior/year info and sample posting date info. Can someone point me in the right direction so that I end up with the correct period/year in column 'C' for the applicable posting date?
So i have have a two week period that is established by two dates (a start date "F3"... And an end date "F4")
I have a formula that determine if the "1st" of the month falls within the 13 days preceding the start day. This will notify me that I can the deposit my tenant first check on the start date.
Now that that is known, i would like to create a formula that will establish a second date in that month that will notify me when I can deposit my other renters payment. It will always be two after i deposit the first renters cheque.
Need to create year to date sales comparing 4 years month by month. Stacked chart (Excel 2010) works OK for the first three months but adding the fourth month changes the chart to 4 series with a monthly axis. To put it another way I need a vertical axis of years and a horizontal axis of $$$ with each months sales of each year stacked on its year.
I have a range of dates from 2003 to 2012. I formatted them to the 'Mar-01' option, but when I want to pivot on the month, Excel still reads them as the date - example 3/25/2008, 3/28/2008...and so my pivot table has multiple columns for all of the dates present in that month.
How do I truly format my dates so that excel reads them as the month only so that I can then pivot and show 12 columns (months) per year?
I have two columns of dates, leave start and end dates (when people start leave i.e. annual leave). Would need to introduce column(s) to calculate how many days fell within the month including the end date and excludes weekends.
For example, if the staff on leave from 31st March to 6 April, i need to show that the number of leave taken as 1 day in March and 4 days in April.
I have a input box that prompts a user to enter a date of a new month - it has to be the 1st of a new month. I have validation that it is a date that has been entered but then i want to validate the date entered is a month ahead of a date in a cell range on a sheet.
It is a monthly reset so it has to roll on from the previous month.
Here is what i have currently but it isn't working.
' Get user to input the first day of the new month to populate all dates with dNewMonth = InputBox(Prompt:="Enter first Day of the new Month. Must be the 1st of the Month e.g. 01/10/2012", _ Title:="Enter Date") ' Validates the entered date is a valid date If (IsDate(dNewMonth) = False) Then
