#### Date format pre-1900.

```Hi,

I have a table of immigration ships that have arrived in Australian shores.

Some....okay most.....of the ships arrived before 1900.

I was trying to sort by the arrival date, which is in the format of
DD MMM YYYY, but that didn't work, as there were some 1900 dates.

Tried to re-style the column to DD/MM/YYYY, but the pre-1900 dates
don't change to the new style.

Any suggestions on how to utilise the pre-1900 dates, so that Excel can
recognise
them.

Craig.

Calculate Years/Months Between Dates and then Average
We are using the formula =DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"y") & "." & DATEDIF(A1,NOW(),"ym") to calculate the years and months from an employee hire date. 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: =AVERAGE(A1:A10*1) 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: =AVERAGE(A1:A10) which is *not* array-entered. ...

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. If that fails, you can a...

Post Dated Checks
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 create new fiscal years to match these dates, I will end up having 4 Open years. Is this the only way to do it? You can manage post dated checks in Microsoft Dynamics GP with the Payment Document Management module available on the Feature Pack 1 DVD image.

strange date format problem
Hi, I downloaded some data on excel using Bloomberg. One column has dates and the other has numbers. Dates appear as 01/01/1980 format which I want in Jan-80 format. I have changed the format cell properties but it still appears as 01/01/1980. I have to goto individual cell and press F2 <enter> so see the effect. Dont know why? I cant even copy paste format after that .... TIA/amag I am not sure, but is your workbook set to Auto-Recalculate? Try pushing <F9> to do a manual re-calculation, see if that changes the formats.

How to sort by name then date?
I would like to look through all the emails to a particular person. If I click on the "To" column I can see all the emails to a particular person (actually there is a problem with that which I will mention next) but they seem to be in random order. Is there a way to have them sorted by date? (i.e. by name first, then by date). Actually, sorting on the "To" column does not get all the emails sent to a given email address. Because Outlook uses the "display as" field. It will often give different "display as" names to the same email address. C...

Concatenate including a date so that the date appears as a date
When I try to join the contents of several cells, one of which is a date and time obtained from =now(), the date and time part appears as a number. How can I make it appear as a date and time? I have tried changing the cell formats - probably there is a combination that works but I haven't found it. I also tried copying the original date cell to another cell and changing the latter cell's format and concatenating using that latter cell, but still no success. Use the TEXT function. For example, =TEXT(NOW(),"mmmm d, yyyy") would give January 6, 2010 "dd...

Underlined formatting comments in Word 2003
Some days ago I got some good tips from readers in this forum, re unwanted red colored, underlined, formatting comments in plain documents. Comments which I printed, but somehow have lost. These comments have now popped up in some other document. When I am inside this document, it seems as if I really managed to get rid of the formatting comments. Then I save the document in normal way, then exit from Word 2003. Next when I open up the same document, those underlined comments come up again.

Formating pivot table cells.
Hello, I'm having problems with preserving format of a pivot table. That's how it happens: - I clear all the filters - change e.g. font size of the first column - apply one of the filters - the format changes but it looks like these are random changes - one cell has one format, the other has different, one cell is alligned to the left, the other not and so on. I tried to apply "preserve format after update" (it may sound different, it's just my translation from polish) function but it both cases formating looks random.

Conditional Formatting
Hi, I have a spreadsheet that is for tracking work. I would like to have conditional formatting so that if the date in column E is between todays date and 4 weeks away then make it blue, if it is a date that is after 4 weeks away then make it yellow but if it is in the past make it red. Can this be done with conditional formatting or does it need vba? Also it would be nice if the whole row changes colour even if just the condition is on the date which is in column E - but if that can't be done then just the cell is fine.
