Grouping dates in pivot table
I am pulling data from a SQL Server database to create a pivot table.
Excel (07) is not recognizing the field as a date. This is a field I
would like to group by in the pivottable. I am aware of all the
techniques to convert this to a date field, but I am searching for an
answer as to why XL pivot tables cannot consume the dates directly
from a sql query.
I have played with bringing the dates back in a number of differenent
formats with no success.
Any insights into this would be appreciated.

Publisher doesn't support this. You would need to do it manually.

...Date and Time
Is it possible to have a cell show the current date and time without
entering it, like in word?
If you want the current date and time, updated whenever a calculation
occurs, use =NOW(). If you want to enter the current date, without
updating, press CTRL+;

One column has the date which I enter manually. If I type 15may it converts
immediately to 15-May which is great. But how can I get the line to enter
What I need is to enter one date (say, 20 May) and for all lines below to
automatically add 1 day at a time, either at the time of starting the line,
or even before in one go.
Thank you very much
You can use a formula, if you add the date in A2, in A3 put
copy down as long as needed and format the cells the same way as in A2
"JB"...XL2007: Read-only automatically applies to .xlsm files
I don't know if its me doing something that I shouldn't do, but when I open
a file which is a "regular" .xlsx file it is opened regularly. But if it's a
..xlsm file, somehow it's opened as Read-only.
So far I've used the method of using the Save As ... command from the
office-menu, thereby replacing the old file. A bit cumbersome. Any
explanationtions and/or work-arounds ?
...Question about Date validation
I'm working on a form for weekly data entry. I'd like to create a
date field where the user will enter the date the week ends (ie week
ending Friday, June 25th). Is there a way to write code so that
Access will check that the day the user inputs is a Friday (and if not
they will recieve an error message)?. I know how to program the
error message pop-up box, but I have no idea how to write code to
check if the date inputted is a Friday.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'd like to display only my tasks for the next month or so. How can I filter
out those that are in the distant future or recurring tasks that won't be
due until next year or the year after?
Goto the Tasks folder.
Goto the Customize current view. Click on the Filter Button.
Goto the Advanced Tab. Under define more criteria, clickon the Feilds and
then select All Task Feilds and then select Due Date.
Then under the condition Select Between and then in the Value enter the
range of dates ( say 3/8/2004 and 3/10/2004 ).
Hope this helps !!!
Hi there - I am a new user, have only started using excel 2 days ago but
am really enjoying it. I have managed to create timesheets that
automatically calculate the time spent on a project. Anyway, enjoying
it very much.
So, I have dates running down the left hand column (A), eg, 05.10.05.
Currently I am inputting these by hand because if I drag that cell down
it creates 05.10.06, 05.10.07 etc. I have messed with the 'custom'
setting and changed it to 'dd.mm.yy' but this has not solved it.
Any help much appreciated.

small ...Automatically import/export workflow
I'm working on a redeploiment tool for CRM 3.0 pro. I mean a tool to
automatically import all customizations (customizations, callouts, workflow,
data...) of a CRM to another one. Is there a way to automatically (from a
program, not manually) import/export workflow rules ? I know there exist web
services for callouts import/export, is there the same for workflow rules.
I don't think so. Workflow import/export is handled by a separate application
and cannot be accessed through any of the CRM web services

I created a macro and a button that when clicked it entered todays date in a

Problem is the date keeps updating to todays date and I want it to stay the

does not update everyday?
You need to enter the date itself. Any function will always
update to the current date. Ctrl+; will enter the current date in

hi im new to excel 2007
i want to ask that when i type 7/4 in a cell excel thinks that the slash is
division operator so it divides it ??
but in different cell it interpret it as date
ok another problem is that when I enter 7/4 in the different cell excel
interpret it as 4-Jul only but How do I display the year too ? even if i type
7/4/2008 or 7/4/08 it still shows 4-JUL ?
thank you very much
Format the cell as m/d/yyyy, you created the d-mmm format by just entering
7/4 so you need to reformat the cell to the date format you want. Always
