excel putting random cells into date format
I opened a new spreadsheetand started inputting data.
About 100 lines into a very simple sheet of only 3
columns the numbers started turning inot dates all by
them selves. I highlighted the cells and reformatted to
the general formatting and it immediately went back to
the date format. Additionally, when I printede the
spreadsheet it printed pages and pages of blank gridlined
sheets until I realized it and turned off the printer.
THen when I saved the file it was 7meg! This file had 5
pages, 3 colums each and no more than 300 rows each. I
cut and pasted the data into a spreadsh...Formula reads date as number
I have a formula that reads a list of dates in cells K5 through K20 an
compares these dates to 1 date in cell M3. Cell M3 shows a date bu
when I run the evaluate formula auditing tool on the formula, M3 date
shows as a number, thus the formula fails.

I have a four spread sheets all the same that I have copied and pasted into

Select the entire range that you want to sort.
Sort by the column that contain the dates.

I have a list of computer programs with start and end dates for each. I need
to determine how many programs were running on my system on any given day.
Can I get this data for individual days between the start and end dates
without creating columns for each intermediate day? Ex.: Program 1 ran from
01/01/2005 to 01/14/2005. Program 2 ran from 01/06/2005 to 01/22/2005. Is it
possible to chart the total number of programs running on 01/08/2005 without
manually creating a column for that date?
You can compute this with formulas. Star with data in A1:C4 as follows:

Some functions such as NOW and TODAY are "volatile" meaning that they will
cause a calculation of those cells when any calculation is mode, including
updating those values when the workbook is open.
Microsoft Most Valuable Profe...Shipment/Invoice Needs to Allow Different Date for Invoice
Right now the Processing of a Shipment/Invoice in Receiving Transaction Entry
(Version 9.0) generates an Invoice that has the same date as the Receiver.
This can create issues with when the inovice is processed for payment and
with discounts taken that a vendor may dispute. (the invoice date does not
match the vendor's invoice date ). If you change the date used when
processing this transaction to be the invoice date and not the receipt date,
then that creates problems with not giving a true representation of when the
product was actually received, especially if the date is around...PLEASE HELP! need conditional formatting related to date, blank cells and today's date

Is it possible to have a function where if you enter the date numerically, eg
it returns the DAY & date, eg 'Fri, 30th March 2007' ?
This would obviously work off the computer calander so as to ensure it gets
the day of the week correct.

Yes, since you archived that date, the modified date should match.
