#### Dates and times - Urgent

I need to be able to calculate down to the # of days and
hours between 2 dates.  For instance I receive document
at 11:50 a.m. on 10/1/03 and it was processed at 6:00
p.M. on 10/3/03.  I want a column that will tell me the
difference in either days and hours or just hours('cause
we know 24 hours =1 day etc..).  How do I do this?

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.

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 ...

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?

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 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...

An uneven time-increment
Dear all, If in a spreadsheet you have years 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2050 with associated data for each year, how do you produce a line graph of this without 2050 being positioned at the same interval on the x-axis as the difference between the other years? To clarify, because the difference between 2050 and 1990 is greater than the difference between the previous years (all 1), how do get Excel to represent this on the x-axis of a line graph?

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.
