strange date format problem
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 ....
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. If it does, go to Tools (on the menu bar), Options,

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

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

I would like to have a statement like:

I could put in the numeric offste for the date and write

I am trying to create an expression to select items from a date field falling
from a certain date to a certain date. I am obviously missing something in
my expression. The field name is DateComplete. How can I set up this
expression to pull date from a certain date to a certain date?
An example of the SQL would be:

WHERE DateComplete Between #1/1/2006# And #1/1/2007#

I want to be able to list the most current date an item is checked out. As I
was working through the query I used max as an aggregate function but I still
can't get the simple result I want. I'd rather list the fields I have chosen
and somehow select just the most current checkout date. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. Here is my query:

[TerritoryDescription] AS Description, tblTerritory.TerritoryTypeID,
tblTerritoryType.TerritoryType, Max(tblTerritoryCheckout.DateCheckedOut) AS
Can anyone help me on how to force the system date to a member field of

Are you just trying to get the current date. You can use
CTime::GetCurrentTime() or COleDateTime::GetCurrentTime()

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.
Assume the dates start in E2, select all dates w...Time and date problem

Can somebody show me how to add the seconds to the date please.

I have a problem getting the date to show up as I have it in my column of

...Converting dates to current dates to find out the evaluation date
I am trying to take the date of hire for a list of employees. For emample,

the yearly due this year. I was able to figure out the dates by adding the
values of 182 and 365, but the year stays the same.
Perhaps using the DateSerial function will give you the desired results.
DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month([HireDate]),Day([HireDate])) as Annual
DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month([HireDate])+6,Day([HireDate])) as 6Month
Those should return 3/3/2010 and 9/3/2010
