Date & Time


Hi Team,

Please help me.

I want to add date and time when the colum was filled or last modified date and time.

For example, If Priya filled a colum... When we drag mouse towards the coloum, others should know when priya filled the colum, example date and time.

How to do it. 

Please help me



Note - I cant see Track changes option in the Review tab. so i m confused

Track Changes applies only to Shared Workbooks. It's a legacy function which does not appear in the Ribbon as stndard (but you can add it, via Customize Ribbon). I think my Answer (Don's tutorial) gives a better metrhod (if you add a new column for "Last Updated")

Usally, Someone add something in colum, system should track automatically date and time. I was looking for that feature

I'm going out now. Suggest you Customize to add button then use that

Next time, please ask your question clearly.

This requires VBA, Excel's built-in programming language. Please see Don's tutorial Automatically Timestamp Entries in Excel, again in the Tutorial section.

If you search in this Forum for "timestamp", you will see several questions/ answers which extend the use of that method.

Hope this helps.
