Format Cell For Date And Time
I have a problem when i try to format a cell. i download data from a website and it gives me the date and time in the first column, ex. 1/1/2009 5:00:00 pm. when i format the cell to date, the time is erased and the date remains which is what i want, ex. 1/1/2009. however, when i click on that cell or any other in that column, the display above, or "insert function" line still show the contents of the cell with the date and the time, ex. 1/1/2009 5:00:00 pm. is there any way i can change that so the time is erased and only the date remains, ex. 1/1/2009 when i click on the cell?

Split Date & Time Cell & Format Time As Hundreth Of Second
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.

Date Format: Extract Only Time And Paste It To Cell A56 In Same Sheet
I get one report.xls workbook by FTP. This book contain date and time in cell A14 in sheet1. e.g. 30-04-2006 19:38:00
I need to have macro to extract only time and paste it to cell A56 in same sheet. How can I do that. The date format is 30-04-2006 19:38:00 and it may be 05/05/2006 7:15 am. Or it could be any type of date format. Please send me how can I work with different date and time format to extract the only time and paste to other cell.
Copy N Paste Time Date/time Format
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.
Format Date & Time To Show Day, Date & Time
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.
Format - dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm
Appearance - 29/03/2009 00:30
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?
Format Now Function For Time & Date
I have two worksheets which talk together and one of them gives a time stamp using some VBA code
in the other spreadsheet I have the Now() function which has been working fine. However, when another user went into the spreadsheet went in it, my calculations between the two dates now error. I am presuming its because of the now function not having some formatting defined so is there anyway of changing this value? The cells-formatting will not obviously work as excel is getting confused between the two time types even though the format looks fine. To help the calculation that is messing up is
whereby L7 is the imported timestamp and J1 is now(). The calculation is to show which accounts become inactive after 10 days.
After reading up on the internet I know that to get round the problem I have to make sure that everyone is using the same regional settings. But I just have a couple of questions:-
1. I can understand the date calculation not working on the other persons machine, but when I went back to look at it I was getting the same error. Even though the file is shared, how come my settings didnt 'overwrite' and how come i was affected?
2. Is there a way to make the code work regardless of who opens it in whatever region? Im not sure if there is a fundamental problem but I cant rely on everyone having the same settings because I know that this will cause problems in the longterm.
3. Using the formuale Now(), is there no way of forcing that to a uk date format to stop the errors?
Date Time In Text Format
I have been sent an excel sheet, that contains a text column with a date and time format below
Is it possible to convert this into date & time to use in a calculation.
Calculate Date/time Format Over 24 Hours
I need to calculate the difference between two cells that are formated like this: 11/10/2006 13:00. Simple subtract only works when the date hasn't changed (the subtract formula seems to focus on the time and ignore the date).
I found a formula that will work, but the results are in regular numbers, I need the hh:mm format and if I change the format of the result column, the time displayed is wrong.
The formula is=((B2-A2)*1440)/60)
If my result is 122.6 in regular numbers, when I convert to hh:mm I get 14:00.
Is there a better way to do this? Also, is there a way to eliminate weekend & holiday hours from the calculation? This is not as important as getting the results to calculate correctly in the hh:mm format.
Counting Days In Date/Time Format
I am trying to count the number of orders written per day. I used the following formula on another sheet and it worked fine, however on this one, A8 is a date only, and F2:F2000 is a date and a time.
I tried reformating the cell for date only, and it displays only the date, however, the time information is still stored, and I can't get it to do the count. Is there a way to count the date regardless of the time?
Convert Serial Date Time To General Format
I use software that exports date/time stamps in the format of: MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss.s
I like to keep the data in this general format so that we can keep it consistent and it can be useful to others using other software.
I recently had to do some date/time stamp manipulations where I added 61 days to a dataset because the data was erroneously set to a diferent calendar. (Still don't know how that happened but it isn't relevent to this issue) When I set up a formula to add 61 days, it appears that it automatically converted it to the excel serial date/time format before adding the 61 days. Now I have a column of data that is mostly general format but has this portion in serial format. How can I get the serial format changed back to general so that the entire column is in the same format?
Find Time Format Cells And Convert To Date
I am pasting a large amount of data from a sql server query into excel. There is multiple tables output in each query. Some of the data is date/time and excel is formatting all of these cells to time. The date/time cells to not neatly line up in any row or column, so I cannot just format any give column or row. I need a macro that will find all of the cells that are formatted as time and change them to a date format.
Adding Years, Days, Months To Date/time Format

Copy Row If DATE & Time In Cell Is Between Time Span
I have a problem regarding sorting data having date and also time within a single cell.
Example data (I have written it as code to preserve formatting)
A B C D E F
12/5/2008 02:072/5/2008 06:0128804833363
22/5/2008 18:012/5/2008 18:0599271297
Column B is start date and time whereas Column C is end date and time.
My aim is to cut and paste the whole row automatically to Sheet2 if the time is within 2AM to 8AM else leave as it is.Also I don't know anything about VBA Script.
Prevent Automatic Date Format When Referencing Date Cell
I have been struggling with my Excel 07 Date format. Nearly every time I perform a calculation, enter in a value etc in a spreadsheet my answer is returned as a date. So for example if I enter in a cell: = 5 - 4. I get the answer "1-Jan-1900" instead of 1. I have to manually set the formats to general or number if I want the correct format. The setting seems to be the default one and occurs for all workbooks I open. What can I do to change this.
Remove The Time From A Cell With Date And Time In It?
I have data exported from a defect management tool (that reports all the defects that have been recorded in the defect management system). This data has unique columns for name of originator, defect ID, date originated, priority, etc. The date originated column has the date and time. I want to create a report that tells me how many High, Medium and Low priority defects were created on each date - and I am using a pivot table to do this.
However, because the date column is actually the date and time the defect was reported/recorded, the time element of this is making all the dates unique eg, I have three defects recorded on 29/01/2009, a High priority defect (reported at 29/01/2009 12:23) and two Medium priority defects (reported at 29/01/2009 13:02 and 29/01/2009 13:32). My pivot table is showing each date as a unique date - with a count of 1 against each, whereas I want to see 1 date entry (for 29/01/2009) with a count of 1 against High and 2 against Medium.
I have tried custom formatting the date column to dd/mm/yyyy - which appears to work in the data (but doesn't in the pivot table, because the time stamp is still there, just not visible). I have tried copy and paste special [Values] (on the custom formatted date column) -but the time stamp is still there. I have tried formatting the date column to "General", but this changes the dates to the number format - eg 29/01/2009 12:23 becomes 39842.5166203704.
I have tried inserting a new column and using the =Left function for the first 10 characters of the cell (ie the 29/01/2009), but that gives the first 10 characters of the number form of the date, ie 39842.5166. Basically, without going into every date cell (and I have thousands) and manually deleting all the times, how do I quickly change the date column into just having the date in it (ie how do I strip off the time element)?
Format Time From Cell In VBA Code
I am trying to insert data from an excel sheet to a sql database. Everything works okay but the Time value. In the Excel sheet it is '12:09 PM' and when it is read with 'cl. Offset(0, 6).Value' it turns it into '0.50625'. Is there a way to format it so it can be inserted as a datetime?
Dim cl As Range
For Each cl In Range("A1:A12")
stSql = "INSERT INTO GasData (Delivery,OpenPrice,High,Low,Last,Change,Time) VALUES ('" & _
cl.Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 1).Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 2).Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 3).Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 4).Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 5).Value & "','" & _
cl.Offset(0, 6).Value & "')"
Search & Replace Date In Date And Time Cell
I have several hundred rows of date/times which I need to modify just the date (for example 08/23/2007 11:00 to 08/15/2008 11:00). Each row may have a different time so it is just the date I'm targeting for change.
If I manually use the replace dialog, replacing 08/23/2007 with 08/15/2008 works just fine. However, if in code I attempt to use the Cells.Replace function, it does not locate any data to change.
I have found that if I search for the string 8/23/2007, the dates are located and changed. Only when I attempt to find the fully formatted date 08/23/2007 does the function fail.
Date/Time Formula: Pick Up A Date With Time Entry On A Worksheet And Place It Into A TextBox On A UserForm
I am attempting to pick up a date with time entry on a worksheet and place it into a TextBox on a UserForm. Format on the sheet is mm/dd/yyyy h:mm AM/PM. The UserForm is placing the value as mm/dd/yyyy 12:00 AM. here is the
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If Not Range("dDate").Value = "" Then
TextBox2.Value = Range("dDate").Value
TextBox2.Text = Format(DateValue(TextBox2.Text), "mm/dd/yy h:mm AM/PM")
TextBox2.Value = ""
"dDate" is the named range where the date is sitting. The format is also set on the TextBox2 exit event. Can anyone see why only the date portion is being transfered with the default 12:00 AM for no time component of the value?
Join 2 Times In Cell & Retain Time Format
I'm usually able to find my answer but I couldn't find anything to match what I need. Anyway... this is either really simple or impossible to do. I have two cells which have times in each. Say A1 has 5:00 PM and A2 has 10:00 PM. I'm just trying to make it so one cell will say:
From 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM... So I tried this ="From " & A1 & " to " & A2
But as I'm sure you already know that yields this result:
From 0.708333333333335 to 0.916666666666668
Input And Display Data In Cell In H:mm Format Without Changing To Time
Can i put into the cells B38-AF38, that would display the sum of B20:AF20 + B24:AF24 + B28:AF28 + B32:AF32 +B36:AF36 in a h:mm format.
When imputing the data into a cell in a h:mm format, I need it to display in that cell and formula bar the h:mm format without having to put an apostrophe in front of "h" or ":mm" value. Once complete, this form is going to go to other trainers to use on their computers and I dont think they would remember to keep putting an apostrophe before the data.
B20= 1:15 (1h15m) NOT 1:15:00 AM
B24= :30 (30min)
B28= :45 (45min)
B32= 1:45 (1h45m) NOT 1:45:00 AM
B38= 4:15 (4h15min)
I have attached a copy of the form for better clarification.
It doesnt seem to be complicated, but it's certainly a lot more than I thought.
Date Format To New Cell
November 1, 2008
1 novembre 2008
In the formula bar, these formated dates appear as 11/1/2008.
What I need to do is copy the formated dates and paste them into another column so that they show up as November 1, 2008 or 1 novembre 2008 and not as 11/1/2008.
Does anyone know of a non-macro formula or function that can do this? Is there a "paste as is" function?
Cell Date Format Will Not Change
I am facing a problem with number formats. I have downloaded some data from a database. In the data, there are some date columns in MM/DD/YYYY format. In a seperate workbook, I have copied that data as values. Now when I am trying to change the formats of the dates to d-mmm-yy, they don't change. The formats are not not changing to any other format. I even tried changing the formats using VBA, but it did not work.
Format Date In Cell As Text
I am pulling reports out of a non-windows based program. This program spits out the data directly into an Excel spreadsheet, with but a click of a button. I imagine that the designers of this program assumed that this would be useful, but it's actually proving to be quite irritating.
The Date format they have chosen for their program is NOT the date format that Excel uses, but it resembles it enough to cause serious problems. The original program tracks dates in a "dd/mm/yy" format, rather then Excel's "mm/dd/yy". To my VAST personal irritation Excel does NOT convert this into Text (which could be
manipulated by snipping it into the correct format) but instead converts it into it's own Date format, leaving me with a useless and incorrect serial number as the only data.
I cannot interact with the exporting process at all, and as the program exports DIRECTLY into Excel I cannot manipulate the data prior to import (which would be one relatively easy way of avoiding this problem). I am left trying to figure out a way to reconstruct an actual date out of this mess. Is there any way to convert a date serial number BACK into text?
Automatically Format Date Cell As General
I have a cell that is constantly being changed from a date to a number. Excel automatically formats the cell as a date when a date is entered but if I re-enter a number it leaves the format as a date.
Is there anyway to automatically change the format back to general if a date is not entered.
I had this bit of code obviously it dosent work.
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("E8:E46")) Is Nothing Then
If IsDate(Target.Value) Then
Target.NumberFormat = "d/mm/yy;@"
Target.NumberFormat = "General"
Cancel = True
Pass Date In Cell To Variable & Format
I'll get straight to the point:
where ( Date > 9/20/2007)
The above Date si used in a sql select statement where I'm hard coding the date (9/20/2007). This date is actually located in sheet1, cell E1. How can I get it from that cell and use it in my Select statement instead of entering the date manually every day in my code?
Record Date & Time In Cell Corresponding To Changed Cell
When a cell changes i would like the cell in the next column to record the date of this change. After achieving this i want to set up conditional formatting to compare this date to the current date and if they are the same then change the original cell's colour to show it changed today!
I started using the code below (from ozgrid) which was working fine BUT my cell value in column A is actually taken from a different column. when the different column cell value changes my cell in A changes but the script below does not seem to see this as a change. it only records the date if i physcially change the cell in A rather than another cell prompting it to change.
based on my overall objective and my plans to date please can someone suggest a solution?
current code below....
Recording Date And Time In A Cell When Another Cell Is Activated.
I would like to have people enter text in the cells in column A and record the Date and Time they did it in the same cells in column J.
I have tried (in cell J1) If(A1<>"", NOW(),"") but of course the problem is that it keeps updating to the present time. I tried using INT(NOW()) but that doesn't work
I know I could simply Copy and Paste Special over each cell in the J column but that seems terribly inelegant.
Pass Date From TextBox To Cell & Change Format

Cell Format: Only Numbers (no Date) With Any Amount Of Decimals
I need a cell to restrict the input:
-Only numbers are allowed.
-No date posible.
-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).
I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".
I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

I have formatted the cells for row 'E' for 'Date' and DD/MM/YYYY in English UK, But when I have inputted the date into the input box ( e.g. 01/05/2008 ), it inputs into the spreadsheet 05/01/2008 (American Obviously),
Renaming Workheet As Date Format (cell Reference) Using VBA
I download & import CSV files/ sheets from bank, visa accts etc & I am trying to automate the processes I use including ensuring I (& others) will use the same naming conventions eg visa "yymm" = V0701, Direct Cedits = DC0701 etc. I am having trouble renaming or ensuring the active sheet is named according to the date in A3 eg in the example I want the sheet to be renamed V0702 as the date in the cell is 02/02/07 "dd/mm/yy" format ( imperial system). In BOLD is what I have & the renaming is messy becuase I searched the forum, Walkenbach's bible & help menu.

Add Static Date & Time To Cell
I am not sure whether this can happen, I want to capture time taken for different activities, without manually entering the details.I tried the formula "=Now()", but what happens is that at the end of the day the times are all the same because the live time is changing. Is there a way where the live time is captured and freezed, so that at the end of the day i have a time log sheet.
Change Cell Value According To Date Time
I have an excel worksheet to display all debtor amount and create date.
When the create date compare with system date which is over 90 days, the debtor amount will be deducted and bad debt amount increased.
How should I use VBA to work out this? The debtor and bad debt are in 2 worksheets.

Converting Normal Time To Epoch Time Format
I'm working on converting some databases. One has entries with normal human readable time format, the other uses the unix epoch time format.
Is there a function or vba code that I can use in excel to convert the normal time format to epoch time?
I've got a thousand or so entries, so it would be nice to find a way to do this on a large scale.
Static Date & Time Corresponding To Cell Change
What I need is lets say I have 3 columns Name, Date & Time
Name field has a drop down menu having a list of names
Now what I need is - lets say from the dropdown menu someone selects a name - THEN at the same instance the Time & Date fields gets populated with the Date & Time of that update.
and that Date & Time shouldn’t change if someone selects the same or different name in the row below
Kindly assist in lay man terms as I am a novice to Excel
In this format what I need is like above , the start date & start time should update real time ONLY when a name is selected
and when the End date is selected the End time , Date Elapsed & Time Elapsed should Populate automatically.
However there should be NO effect if data is entered or changed in the Request Id or Issue Cells - basically the triggers should only be Name field & End date Field
Can you attach an example sheet as well please
Have enclosed an sample attachment
