Lookup Results For 1st & Last Day Of Month
I have a series of daily data in columns sorted by date (see attached .xls).

I am trying to create a table that extracts the value on the last day of a given month, and of the first day of that month, for each of the months in the data series.

I have been trying to get lookups and match functions to work but to no avail.

Format A Number As 1st, 2nd, 3rd Etc.

Find 1st, 2nd And 3rd Place...?
We're doing a "Biggest Loser" competition at work. I have a spreadsheet that calculates the % of body weight lost. I need a formula that will look at the results and display 1st, 2nd, 3rd places. Here is this weeks results...

Take The First Letter From The 1st, 2nd, 3rd Names Of The List
I have a few names in the range A2:A11 and the exercise asks: Fill in the cell B19 with a temporary software name. Using the appropriate function, compose such name as follow: take the first letter from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd names of the list; take the third letter from the 4th, 5th, 6th names of the list; take the last letter from the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th names of the list. Moreover, the software name must be in capital letters.

Locate & Return The 1st Or 2nd Or 3rd Value
I have one column of data (numbers). Within this column, are the values for two different categories...which are separated by a blank row. And then a total for each product given one column over; like this:

Product1 123
Product1 456
Product1 789 1368

Product2 456
Product2 123
Product2 456 1035

Either product can increase/decrease in rows, so I am unable to set a static range. The only solution I got on my own was to use SUMIF (sum the column of values if it matches the name "Product1" or "Product2"). This is fine until someone misspells the product name or leaves it off completely; which is why I prefer to go off the actual values.

My 1st preference is to go off the totals. Basically, return the 1st value (ie 1368) in the column, and then in another cell, return the 2nd value in the column (ie 1035).

My 2nd preference would be to sum the individual values in the column until a blank cell is encountered, and then return that value. Then continue on until another blank cell is encountered, and return that value as well.

I know very little of vba, so I haven't taken that route, but I bet this is easily done as a UDF (although I would prefer not to do it that way).

Day Of Week -day Of Month List Auto Setup
What I'm after is a sheet that self generates the day of the week in column A and the day of the month in column B. I have a month long sheet where daily entries get made in the DOW row, the day of the month is a reference. I have a macro to generate a new sheet for the next month and would like to auto populate the DOW and DOM. This typically gets done on the second day of the month (data from the first day is entered on the second)

Last Day Of Month Reverts To First Of Month
I'm doing a web query that brings down stock dates/prices. The dates come down as mm/yyyy. I then format the column as mm/dd/yy which changes the date to mm/01/yy. Then I do a loop that converts the dates to the date of the last weekday of the month. I see the changed dates written back to their cells, but by the time I leave the called conversion subroutine and hit the break on the next line of code, the dates have all reverted back to the first of the month.

In a case like this, I use the Step mode in VBE to step through the code while I
have the worksheet the code is acting on visible. That way you can actually see
which line in the code converts the value back to the original value or if indeed
it does put the eomonth date in the active cell. By the way, I'd suggest you use the equivalent of the eomonth worksheet function directly in the macro rather than pasting the date to another cell and reading the eomonth from another cell containing the formula for eomonth.

How Can I Find My 1st Of The Month
am working on a time sheet project. i'm now working on the monthly holiday planner.
Am looking for a way for a formlua to look at 2 rows and return the first of the month i.e 01-01-2009

The rows which need to be looked at are the first two rows of any given month because the 1st of the month will always be in the first two weeks of a month.
my rows are

1st week to look in. b4-h5
2nd week to look in. b19-h19

Now b4 as a paste link in it ..=roster!\$H\$2 which is the start date of the roster
the result of the search is then put into b2 as Month only ie. January

Always Return 1st Of The Month In VBA
From the code below I need to translate whatever date is input to the First day of the month to pass into my VBA via the variable "SMth"

e.g. entered 12-03-09, returned 01-03-09

SMth = InputBox("Enter date of FIRST month ", "Format like 01-01-07", "01-01-07")
SMth = "=DATE(YEAR(SMth),MONTH(SMth),1)"
Cells(3, 8).Value = SMth
The line

SMth = "=DATE(YEAR(SMth),MONTH(SMth),1)"
is giving me an error, what should that line of code be?
OR perhaps you have another solution to reach the same goal

Matching 2 Fields In 2 Columns And Copying A 3rd Field Into The 3rd Column
I need a formula. Probably Vlookup. I'm having a LOT of trouble trying to figure out how to "phrase" the formula so let me explain what it is I'm trying to do. If a cell in Sheet 1 Column AS and a cell in Sheet 2 Column B match exactly, I want the cell in Sheet 2 Column C that is in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 2 Column B to be copied into Sheet 1 Column BB in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 1 Column AS.

For example, if cells in S1 Column AS and S2 Column B both have the name "LOS ANGELES" then "KLAX" will be copied from cell in S2 Column C (in same row as "LOS ANGELES") to S1 Column BB (in same row as "LOS ANGELES").

Auto-calculate Last Day For A Month
I'm working on a Calendar. One where all the user does is input the year, and the rest of the Calendar fills itself out, as to the days.

Leap year is causing a small problem. There may be an easier way to do this (actually, I'm sure there is, but anyway), is there a way for a cell to automatically figure the last day of the month?

IE: I put "2007" in a field. Another cell auto matically reads as "28" (last day of Feb for this year). Subsequently, when I enter "2008", the same field reads "29".

The rest I think I got ok, but everytime I get a leap year, it shoves all my formulas down a cell, thanks to the extra day, and they're all off by one (February calendar showing last day as "01" from March, and "29" as the first day for March, from Feb).

Last Working Day Of Month Formula
I am trying to create a formula to work out the last working day of each month, but I can't come up with anything that is less than the 1,024 formula limit. I am using a UK calendar so the only two holidays to effect the last working day of the month will be Easter and the last Monday in May.

This is the formula I am using which takes account of Easter, the checking for the last Monday in May is simple enough in another column, but I would rather keep it in one column, just wondering whether there is a simpler way of doing this.

A1 is a specified date and then I would like to work out the last working day of the month, on a new row, for up to the next 50 years....

Report Of Table By Day & Month
I am using Excel 2007 and need some help. If you could please download and open the attached excel sheet then i guess you will be able to understand my problem easily. I am also not sure if what i am asking is really possible or not in Excel (would prefer without any VBA coding but if there's no other way then VBA coding would also do).

What i need is that based on the data from 'data' sheet i want to dynamically fill the ' Date' column in 'CatA' sheet. If you check the 'Expected Result' sheet where i have manually filled the dates and automatically calculating the 'Amount' but i was curious to know if somehow i could dynamically fill the values in 'Date' column based on month name in header?

CSV File To Save For Each Day Of The Month
I have searched the forum regarding copying data from multiple worksheets into a main workbook, but I did not find anything that tells me how to copy data from multiple csv files into one workbook tab, I can see a thread created by Hiport which is very similar to what I want.

I have a CSV file saved for each day of the month, these files are saved in their monthly folders, so all the CSV files for May will be saved in U:CustodiansInterestYearMonth(May2008), now in this folder will also be a master workbook called “Interest-May2008”.
What I do next is very manual, I have to copy from each CSV file, data from Col 1 and Col2 and paste this to the master workbook- sheet (downloads), all the data will be pasted next to each other, i.e. col 1 and 2 will be data for 01-May-08, and col 3 and 4 will have data for 02-May-08 etc, as you can see it’s a very daunting task having to go through each file and copy and paste.
I need a macro written so it copies data in col 1 and 2 in each csv file and then pastes that data in a master workbook sheet (downloads), the data will be in date order of the CSV files, I want the data pasted in row 3 of the master workbook (downloads).

Date Display Like Day/Month/Year
Im having a little issue with the way the dates are layed out.

I have a condition format =AND(RC5="No",TODAY()<RC4+10)

And withen the cell's the date is located, If the cell is writen Month/Day/Year everythink works.

Though i have always written dates like Day/Month/Year.
ive tryed to do go to the number format thing and change it, though that just seams to change the end display not the way excel handles the date. it there a system level change that can be made of change somethink.

I'm trying to finish up a little program, but am stuck on getting date values from excel over to a another front end system correctly. The issue is pretty basic - I have a value I call "fulldate" which, for example is "1/5/2010"

I have to move each element of the date to this other system, but if I don't add the 0 before the month and day, it gets pushed over incorrectly (this other front end has three fields which accept: mm dd yyyy. BUT, if one character is entred into the mm field, you need to TAB to get to the dd field. If you enter TWO characters, you CANNOT tab to get there (you'd end up in the yyyy field).

So, all I really need to do is take the value "1/5/2010" and end up with three variables of consistent lengths.

Month = 2 characters
Day = 2 characters
Year = 2 characters

Here's what I'm trying tu use.. .but Day1 = 1, not 01. I've tried using format, but it's just not working how I'd expect.

Converting A Day Date To A Month And Year

However when I try and format this to "mmm" or "mmm yr" to get a month I can then cut and paste, it always retunrs the month of JAN.
