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.

...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

I've created a database with about 15 tables for a participant data in a
research study. Each participant will complete the 15 assessment measures.
My ultimate goal is to create a data entry system whereby a research
assistant can pull up a form and enter an ID number, plus the answers to the
15 assessment measures.
I know I can create a query to combine all the tables, but it seems like the
research assistant would have to enter the id and date 15 times (once for
each table pulled in to the query).
Is there a way to just enter the ID number one time and have it apply t...dates
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.

I am using Excel 2007. I have a spreadsheet that the figures can be
negative or positve. I have formatted the cells with this custom
format $#,##0;[Red]$-#,##0. On the spreadsheet the format works fine.
I created a chart from the data. I have a data table at the bottom of
the chart. The problem is that the format from the spreadsheet is not
reflected in the data table. When I click on Format Data Table, there
is no option for number formatting. There is a number formatting
option available when i click Format Axis, but this doesn't change it,
because the actual axis is Text.

7/4/2008 or 7/4/08 it still shows 4-JUL ?

Server A publishes (pushes) transactional updates. Server B subscribes
(pulls) to Server A.
I need to stop replication process temporarily and switch server A to single

when I start it again?
