I have a spread sheet laid out as shown in second example below. I need to create another table with the value for from this first column for each date in the respective row. Each row can have a different amount of dates up to 365 dates in a row. All dates are flused left in the table so the first blank cell in a row indicates end of dates in that row.
should end up like looking like the first example below....I have 2500 rows to convert.
Basically I am importing a list of dates from a webpage - they import like this:
I need them in this format: 2011/08/28
I have attached an example file. Don't mind if the correctly formatted dates display in a new column or sheet.
Ultimately I would then like to do this to several different "team sheets"

The table is at the bottom of that page headed - Upcoming matches
I would really appreciate your help!
I have a table of expected outputs by calendar day. I want to specify a target number of outputs (user entry, cell B1), then for any given start date, calculate the end date whose elapsed period (given that start date) will yield at least that target amount of outputs.
Example follows - I need a formula (prefer not to use VBA) that will calculate the stop dates, shown in red in Column E (note: for the sake of this example, I manually determined the appropropriate stop dates an inseted them in Column E).
( Units by Date)

Here is my situation. I created a database for tracking purposes that auto generates a word document with bookmarks. The bookmark items need to be in a text format. However, on two of my report to show statistics I can't figure out how to subtract the actual return date with the issue date in the text format. The are the approaches that I have tried in the update query.
DateSerial(Left([Actual Rtn Date],4),Mid([Actual Rtn Date],5,2),Right([Actual Rtn Date],2))-DateSerial(Left([Issue Date],4),Mid([Issue Date],5,2),Right([Issue Date],2))
=Format(CDate([Actual_Rtn_Date]),"Short Date"-(CDate([Issue_Date]),"Short Date")
I can get one or the other to work. If I convert the table to date format I can get the report to work but the bookmarks in the word doc won't work.
Queries are far from my strong point with access. Did some searches but all the examples I found did not correspond with what I need. Any help is appreciated.
I have a report which shows the date in US format eg. 10-28-2007
I want to convert it to UK format 28-Oct-07 but it isn't being recognised as a date but a text.
I can use Mid(4,2)&"-"&Left(2)&"-"&Right(4) to get 28-10-2007 but it still doesn't recognise it as a date so can't be formatted as 28-Oct-07.
I have a data source that provides dates as text. When I manually change the format to "date" I do not get the desired result -- it is still text. Could I get some help with code to convert the text to actual date format?
I have a report, which I download on a daily basis, however, the date in column A is in a text format and shows the date in the format 20100427.
Is there anyway that I can convert this date so it shows as a date and in format DD-MMM-YYYY so today would be 27-Apr-2010
I have a date that's in text format as follows:
Fri 8/8/2008 4:11 PM
Excel doesn't recognize this as a date unless I cut off the "Fri " part of it (including space).
I want to convert this to a custom date format: [$-409]ddd h:mm AM/PM;@
to show the date as "Fri 5:51 PM". But, I can't apply the custom date format to my value, since it's just a text string.
I have hundreds of these (various dates and times), and don't want to manually delete the first 4 characters of the value (e.g., "Fri "). Is there a way to cut these characters out quickly so that all my values turn into dates, which can then be re-formatted using my custom date format?
I have a spreadsheet which is in US dates. I need to convert these into a format which excel recognises, to compare what we have on another spreadsheet which is in UK date format. For example i have 07/28/2009 in US format but also 09/11/2009, also in US format. I have tried the LEFT, MID, RIGHT rules and also DATE FORMAT. This converts the first date but keeps telling me the second is 9th Nov, when it is the 11 Sept.
When i check the formatting the first is just text but the second is date, in UK formatt. If i change them all to US then the second date is still 9th Nov (incorrect).
I have tried the text to collumns and regional settings but nothing is semms to be working. Any ideas what could be the probelm?
Here's my problem: I have a table with Date, Time and Value.
The Value is dependent on both the Time in its Row and the Min Time of the Date.
What I want to do is get the Min Time of the Date and use it as a reference in VB, because at the moment I'm simply using the manually input value (Range("B2")).
So if I have values like
the absolute references to the Min Time would be B2 and B5, accordingly.
ok, i've mistakenly make a stupid mistake in excel xp, when i type in a cell a date but i forgot to change into date format instead as a text, how do i convert it to date format without having me to type it all over again ? because i've try to changed it to format but it seem doesnt work.
I have imported some data from my software which includes dates also the date format what I received in excel is 1012009 although this 01-01-2009 (dd-mm-yyyy) but I failed to convert it to the date format it gives me 13-10-4670 if I applied custom format "dd-mm-yyyy" because it is considering it serial number of date, Text to column doesn't work, date, year, month, day, date value functions & custom format don't work.
I've been looking for answer to this one for awhile. I have a bunch of files with cells that contain a date in the date format (i.e. 10/15/08 stored as "39736" in excel). My task is to create a macro that converts these excel dates to static text in the format yyyy-mm-dd. I've been trying to look for a function online and in the VBA help that will do this. No luck! I keep finding format functions or "=text("A1", yyyy-mm-dd) but both keep the information stored as a date data type. I want to convert the actual data type to text while formatting the text into yyyy-mm-dd. If anyone can help me with this it would be GREATLY appreciated. I was thinking maybe formating the date to yyyy-mm-dd and then convert to raw text....but I don't know.
I am trying to use conditional formatting to achieve the date review date column to turn amber if the date is within 30 days of the current date.
I have already used two conditional formats for the following:
1. To turn green if the date is greater than current date:
Cell value is between 1 and = TODAY()
2. To turn red if the date is in the past:
Cell value is greater than =TODAY()
Any help would be appreciated. It must be here on the forum already but I just can't find it.
I want to convert a column of UK date to US date. I understand that this can be done easily using e.g =Text(A1,"mm/dd/yyyy")
However, the problem is that in that original UK date column, there are mixture of date format and cell format. e.g.
25/12/2009 (text format)
31/12/2009 (date format)
12/2009 (text format, mm/yyyy)
2009 (text format, yyyy)
I like to create a function that is intelligent enough to convert the full UK date dd/mm/yyyy (regardless whether text or date cell format) to full US date mm/dd/yyyy, but skip doing the conversion for dates in mm/yyyy or yyyy formats.
Does anyone know how to convert a date that's inputted in a text format?
Example: The date is entered as 62606, this means as 6/26/06. I just can't change the format into date because it will be different.
I'm thinking if there is some sort of formula to add a hyphen and turn it to 6-26-06. Like extracting, the last two digit, then the two middle, then the first
Hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.
I have a column of dates from a downloaded source. Some are aligned to the right of the cell, some to the left (no apparent pattern/consistancy).
The ones aligned to the left of the cell (I think) are text values because when I use =MID(A1,4,2) it extracts the number I expect and I can mess around with text functions to rearrange these dates.
However, the ones aligned to the right of the cell I think are formatted as date values and so text functions do not work correctly
Example (not a great example I know but all the ones which are aligned to the right have the middle part of value 12 or less, making it seem like that's a month value - but it's not)
Date = 12/12/2013
MID(A1,4,2) returns a value of 20 which clearly isn't 12!
I've tried to manually change the format of the date cell to a UK format by using custom (DD/MM/YYYY) but that doesn't work.
Anyone encountered this problem before and if so, what's the solution? Is there a general formula or procedure I can apply to the whole column to make them read as UK dates?
Hey experts - need some help with dates.
I have received a speadsheet with Dates e.g. 04/01/2008 in Column A. The Dates have been sent to me in the format dd/mm/yyyy. The issue is that the actual date in Column A is Apr 1, 2008 not Jan 4, 2008. I need to convert this date to show up in my report as Apr 01. I tried the following but failed
- Converting the date to mm-dd-yyyy format using Custom format. Did not work - it only changed the display but not the basic date
- Using a MONTH function, it shows up as Jan and DAY function shows up as 04.
- Tried using the LEFT string function but it doesn't work - it extracts the digits off the date serial number.
Any suggestions - thanks in advance!
I am having problems subtracting dates. Ideally I would like to use the NETWORKDAYS function but the problem I am having is that the file is imported from Oracle and some of the dates include both the date and actual time, for example, 02/01/06 14:20:44. There are 2 spaces between the date and the time. I have tried a combination of the LEFT and LEN functions to remove the time but because this is a text function, it converts all the dates to text. You then need to convert them back to numbers and apply a date format. I am hoping someone can come up with a quick way of changing a date such as 14/06/06 15:23:24, to 14/06/06 so that this is the actual value that shows in the Formula Bar.
I've searched a lot on Google and on here and have found a ton of ways to convert a Unix timestamp *TO* an Excel Date/Time value but I need to do it the other way.
I've got 2 columns of values (about 9700 in total) - they're all in Excel Date/Time format and the cells have been formatted as such.
I need to convert all those values *TO* a Unix timestamp. For example, one of the cells has this:
25/07/2007 9:18:08 PM
Obviously that date isn't US format (I live in AU). Anyway, the Unix timestamp for that is 1185398288 (according to http://www.onlineconversion.com/unix_time.htm).
Obviously doing this manually for each cell isn't very productive.
Can anyone help me with a formula that can convert the existing Excel Date/Time *TO* a Unix timestamp?
Apologies for the emphasis but I've asked a ton of people and they all come back with how to convert the other way ...
Using Excel 2003 and having trouble with number formatting. Seems really simple to fix but not so much. Please type below into excel to see what I mean:
September 22, 2012
="12:01 a.m., local time, on "&A1&""
A1 has Number Format Date->March 14,2001
In A2 it doesn't matter what format I use (other than text which also doesn't help me), it wants to read "&A1&" as 41174 and not September 22, 2012. This causes anger.
Thanks for any help, it's appreciated.
With regards to a post posted at http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthread.php?t=52378, I'm actually facing the same problem.
However, in my case, I would prefer to have the date and time as my unique ID. I've tried changing the format of the cell but it doesn't work. When a new row of data is inserted, the time and date will still be in the date format and not a text format despite changing it manually (i.e. right-click, format cell).
Thus, I would love to know if there's a way to actually convert a date format into a format whereby it turns into number, a unique ID (i.e. date: 2010/21/07 11:11 to 1021071111). It would be even better if it includes seconds.
Or if you have any suggestion as to how I can generate a unique ID without much codes, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
I have a TextBox in a UserForm in which the user puts a date in any format of his choice. The routine checks that it is a recognisable date and then proceeds. In some cases I want to convert this date, in the TextBox, to the date of the last day in the month. I can do that. I can either specify the month-end date format to be used (e.g. =Format (dMonthEndDate, "dd-mmm-yyyy"), or, if I do not, I automatically get an American date ("mm-dd-yyyy") which is useless here in England.
My question is this: Is it possible, please, to pick up the date format in which the original date was entered by the user so that I can return the month-end date in the same format?
There have been multiple threads on this, but none seem to help. Here is my issue:
I have data which was imported in UK format with time stamp (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) and I want to convert this to US date format (mm/dd/yyyy). I have tried one solution which seems to work, which is to use the Text command to convert the date value into text, and then use the Date formula to convert it back. However, this seems clunky. The advice I have seen does not seem to work:
1. Changing the format of the cells do not work, as they date has already been interpreted wrong on import
2. Using the Date formula directly on the source result yields a strange result (=DATE(MID(A2,6,4),MID(A2,3,2),LEFT(A2,1)) where A2 = 1/11/2008 00:32:13) yields 9/3/1903 as a result instead of 11/1/2008.
Can I still use the DATE formula directly? Have I just calculated the amount of characters wrong in my formula?
I am trying to display both text and a date in the same line. Currently I have something like
="The Date Is " & A1
where A1 is a cell with a date formatted in a preferred format. However, once I call reference to the cell, excel re-formats it into the serial date, so it displays something like
The Date Is 40220
instead of something like
The Date is 2/11/2010
Does anyone know how to format the number back into a date form? Just going through the format menus and setting it to date does not change it. Thanks for your help
