One way:

    Public Sub InsertDateInB3()
        With Range("B3")
            On Error Resume Next
            On Error GoTo 0
            .AddComment Text:=Format(Date, "d-m-yy")
        End With
    End Sub

How do I compare data in two worksheets to find matching cells?
Each day I work with two worksheets. One is a list of numbers that is given to me by someone else. The other list is something I make myself, again it is a list of numbers. I need to know if there is a way I can compare the data to find out if any of the numbers I input on my list match up to the ones on the list I am given. I am aware of the "Find" function, but I'm working with lists of hundreds of numbers, and it's really annoying to take each one and "find" it on another worksheet. Any answers?

Calculating dates & creating reports
I need to design a database that will calculate due dates for evaluations. It will have 5 dates. 4 are calculated. These dates need to be on a form along with the employee's name and other vital info. The user should be able to enter that Start Date and have all the other dates calculate automatically. There are approximately 55 employees! The first date (Start Date) is entered by the user. Example: User enters Start Date: 2/01/07. #2 Next Date is 91 days from 2/1/07, which calculates to 5/03/07. #3 Six Month Date is 182 days from Start Date, which calculates to 8/02...

I have an array with hourly data for an entire year. Normally I use CountIf on this array to ascertain how many occurences occur ove certain data ranges over the entire year. So assuming the data is i B1:B8760. I would Count the number of occurences for the whole yea where data is greater than 1: Entire Year =COUNTIF($B$1:$B$8760,>1) However I now want to use this COUNTIF to assess how may occurence occur over certain data ranges in certain months. The easy way to d this is to build 12 separate COUNTIFs and change the array: January =COUNTIF($B$1:$B$744,>1) February =COUNTIF($B$74...

Date range for report
Hi, I tried to set up controls in a form in order to prompt for date criteria in a report. I added textboxes to the report, with references to the forms controls, in the controlsources for those boxes. When I try to run the report it doesn't prompt for the dates, it just puts #Name? where those controls are. If I open the form and enter the dates directly into the form and click ok it brings up the report with the proper filters though. Is there a way to make the report open the form to prompt for the dates, rather than having to open the form itself? ...

Mass change of same cell in multiple files??????

Cells losing formatting
This is driving me nuts! I use excel 2000. From time to time certain cells (usually blocks of cells or an entir row) containing numerical data lose all formatting. Excel no longe recognizes the data as numbers and will not sort them etc. Selectin the cell(s) and changing the formatting has no effect. Copying, the "paste special / values" only works sometimes. Manually retyping th data over the old usually works but I am dealing with a spreadshee with about 1000 records. I just had this happen with a row containing date / time stamps. Each cell has an entry like "7/26/04 9:5...

Document Date vs. Batch Date
Can someone explain to me the difference between document date and batch date. The way I understand it, the document date refers to the date the item will hit the subledger and the batch date (if batch date is the posting option) refers to the date the transaction will hit the general ledger. Is this correct? Does this mean that if I have all my periods open for a year and I enter a cash receipt transaction with a document date of 05/01/04 in a batch with a batch date of 06/01/04 that my subledger will not balance to my general ledger for that month?

Home Page Content Item: Important Dates (repost)
I asked this question 3 days ago and have received no replies so I'm repeating it. Perhaps the subject name I used: "Important Dates" was too short or sounded like spam. In any case my experience on this board is that even if no one has a solution, someone usually responds saying that he can't reproduce the problem, or that it doesn't work for him either, or that the poster misunderstands what this function is supposed to do.

The real question is this: After I get to a referenced cell with Control +[ is there a way to QUICKLY get back to where I started?

Exchange Server 2003 - pop3 connector
Hello all Our Exchange Server 2003 calls our ISP hourly and downloads all email for our domain from a catch-all pop3 account. When users are reading mail the time stamp which appears is the time which the email was downloaded by our server. What we want to be able to see is the time the email was created by the sender. Does anybody know how to do this? Many thanks Fin The way to go is to use SMTP rather than POP. You'll then see the time that the mail was received into the system, which will be a better representation. If you need to know where a delay was you can look at th...
