```Me: total newbie, in a hurry. please tell me how, THANKS!

User enters a date in column A (m/d/yy).
Formula in column B needs to show column A date plus 60 days (m/d).
Formula in column C needs to show column A date, minus whatever # of days
until 1st day of that month, then plus one year (m/1/yy).
e.g., 2/1/08 (column C) derived from user entry 2/17/07 (column A)

Subtracting dates from years
hello I wonder if someone can help me. I need to deduct a number of years from a date. If you do cell - yrs ie: 24/07/2038 - 65 = 20/05/2038 but I need 24/07/2038 - 65 = 24/07/1973 When I use the Function Wizard this works =DATE(MONTH(A1), DAY(A1), YEAR(A1) -65) But does not display on the worksheet as so. always shows an incorrect date from 1909, This will work as an alternative, format the cell as date =DATEVALUE(MONTH(A1) & "/" & DAY(A1) & "/" & YEAR(A1)-65) With the date in A1: =date(year(a1)-65,month(a1),day(a1)) allison.rogers@friendsprov...

selecting and inserting existing and non existing rows into table parameters and variables

Dates displaying 1900 in chart when charting 1994 vs 2002
I have some very simple data that I need to compare in an XY scatter plot. There are about 10 data points (2 digits with one decimal) from 1994 and the same from 2002.

COUNTIF (?) on two criteria
I have a spreadsheet that logs work activities and records team members' completion of project units. Column B records team member names. Column C has project unit status - 'pending', 'beta' or 'completed'. It's easy to set up a formula to count how many units are allocated to each team member - =COUNTIF(B1:B1000,"Joe"). But what I need to do is set up formulas to count how many units Joe has completed, or has pending or at beta, and this means assessing data in both columns - which COUNTIF won't do. This doesn't strike me as an especially...

QIF 2003 into 2008
Hi everyone. You'll see in an extended earlier thread that I've had no luck upgrading from 2003 Deluxe to 2008 Plus Deluxe. To my great frustration, I have no problems moving from Money 2003 to Quicken 2008... grrr.... One thing I'm trying as a last ditch effort is to export the individual accounts from Money 2003 as QIF files. I can import them into Money 2008, but about half of all the account entries are missing dates. To us, that renders them effectively useless. Anyone seen this before? Any idea why? Any info I can provide that might clarify this? ...

Date Format
User has a spreadsheet with dates - It used to be formated as Month-day (Mar-01). "All of a sudden" the column now displays another date format - example 38569 - in the cell, in the formula field it shows the correct day, but as mm/dd/yyyy. The format of the column is date. We looked at another formula - example ="01/01/1900"+38569 and it shows in the formula field as the correct date - so this is the count of days from 01/01/1900 - how do we convert it back?

Comparing two lists for matches

Source B is a subset of that but has contact information for all the suppliers. Hence, my goal is to retrieve the contact information from Source B and match it to the suppliers of Source A. The above can be easliy achieved using a vlookup funtion. But the problem is that some of the supplier names in the two lists are not exact matches. Hence, vlookup does not catch it. For instance, a supplier is listed as ABC Inc. in A list and as ABC, inc....

*Keeping* multiple CToolbars docked in a single row during window resize
