Formatting Cells Containing Date Fields That Are Text
Someone here at work imported into Excel a column of text data that
looks like mm/dd/yyyy form but need to be mmddyyyy. I thought I could
simply highlight the columns, click on Format/Cells/Custom and create
mmddyyyy. I do this but the data doesn't change UNTIL I highlight
each cell and press F2 or double-click in each cell or create a
formula using Right, Mid, etc. When I press F2 or double-click, I
notice that an X and a check mark both appear to the right of the Row/
Column box. There's got to be an easier way to do this besides

Can I tab over to only cells that need info input, and skip over other cells?
If you protect the worksheet that will happen.
While holding down the CTRL key, use the mouse to select the cells you wish
to tab through
Select Format/Cells and unselect "Locked" on the "Protection" tab
Then go into Tools/Protection and select Protect Sheet
Now, if you don't use a password, anyone will be able to simply unprotect
the sheet as needed and have the "tabbing" capability.

Anyone know if there is a way to add only cells that are highlighted?
I would like to see quick sums of only the cells I have highlighted
and hoping there might be a way to do this quickly and easily. I have
to do this many times with various cells with differing number values.
Thanks in advance
By "highlighted" do you mean colored or simply selected?
If the latter, use the Sum on the Status Bar.
If the former.....................
You will have to use VBA to grab the colorindex of the cells.
Do you want to do that?
