filter by date and action
I have a table with three columns:
Name Date Action
Fred Today this
Fred Today this
Fred Today that
Wilma Today this
I want to sort by name and by date, but only if 'this' was done more
than once on the same day, and not if 'that' was done on the same
day,They have to perform this more than once, and they cannot have
performed that on the same day.
If not in excel, mssql maybe?

Jacob's was is a good way of doing it. Here is another. Highlight the column.

We are using the formula =DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"y") & "." &
DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"ym") to calculate the years and months from an employee
Is there an easy way to average the years and months for a group of
employees with the results of that formula?
You could use:
Array-entered, meaning press ctrl-shift-enter.
But you could also just change your current formula to:
=1*(DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"y") & "." & DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"ym"))
Then just use:
which is *not* array-entered.
...Transaction Date VS Business Date
Our accounting department needs/wants to have all RMS SO reporting by
business date opposed to transaction date. Usually these are the same unless
you have sales and batches that close after midnight. For our store I would
like to set 3 a.m. as the business day closing time. So when I run any type
of reports I would like to get the information for a business date (range)
starting at 3 a.m. till 3 a.m. the next day.
I guess I could accomplish this by subtracting 3 hours from all the
transaction (date and) times but I would have to do this for every single
report which would be a lot of ...IF Function Format -- Microsoft Query
I am attempting to pull data from SQL data table into Excel for pivot table.
Field_1 is a value; always positive. Field_2 is a text flag; either "C"
or"D". Depending on the flag in Field_2; Field_1 is either positive or
negative. What is the format of the entry in Microsoft Query so that a
Field_3 can accurately be calculated?
In Excel I would entry =if(Field_2="D",Field_1,-Field_1).
In Access, the function would be IIF(Field_2="D",Field_1,-Field_1)
Unfortunately I have no idea whether it will work with your SQL data.

I had to prepare some post dated checks and we did not have fiscal periods
set up yet to match the dates of the checks. Currently the check batches are
waiting to be posted. What is the best way to handle post dated checks? If I

You can manage post dated checks in Microsoft Dynamics GP with the Payment

Lets say based on a value in A5 I would like to change the text format for

another way. By that do I input a conditional format for each cell
d5,e5,f5,g5 (if A5> "xx" then <format>.

Yes, highlight the four cells and apply your conditional format to them
all. You will need to use $A$5 as the reference.

(i.e. by name first, then by date).
Actually, sorting on the "To" column does not get all the emails sent to a

often give different "display as" names to the same email address. C...Excel price history import...

I have a question regarding links on Microsoft Excel 2003.
If I insert a line into the source spreadsheet, the link on the destination

But if I insert a line on ACME.xls, making the info in cell A1 move down to

info from the correct cell?
