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).
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 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.
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?
I have a ton of time in the above format (hh:mm.*) that needs to be converted to a 12 hour format (2:15 PM). I'm not wonderful with formulas, but if it's explained "simplistic" enough, I can probably get it. Please help - I've googled this to death every possible way. I can go in an manually change 19:37.5 to 7:37 pm - but it will take me FOREVER!
In D2 I have: =B2 In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
I'm in the military and for maintenance we use the Julian date the format goes as follows "09357" that is simplified as 09 = the year and 357= the three hundred and fifty seventh day of the year. so 09357= 12,23,2009..
so on to my question:
how can i make excel auto convert the julian date to the regular date and vice versa?
Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value? eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm. Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function
How do I change a date "10/01/2004" into a format like 20041001? I used concatenate(right(A1,4),left(A1,2),mid(A1,4,2)) but the function takes the serial value of the date as an argument and concatenates that . So I get a different value.How can I get away with it?
I am having some issues converting the dates in column A on the attached spreadsheet to the mmmm format. I cannot get the dates to change format at all so I was hoping someone might have some ideas why. I have tried everything I can think of. The only thing that has worked so far has been to retype the date in the cells. I have 32000 rows of data I have to convert.
I have a worksheet where in a column, dates are stored in various date format i.e. it may be DMY or MDY or YMD.
Above is just for an example, above dates are for the month of August, but as can been some cells are in MDY formate and some in DMY. Can I have formula to convert different date formats into one date format?
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
