#### leap year question

```Hi,
I have a column for dates, starting with the first day of the year. I only
have to input the first day on cell A@ (say 01/01/06) and the all the days of
the years will be display in the same column (I wrote the simple formula
=A2+1).  Now the next leap year is 2008 and i don't want to have to copy the
last row to add the extra day, I want excel to display the last row of the
date column if it's a leap year and not to display it when is not.  What
should I do?  Thank you
Thalia
```

```use a formula in A2 of

=A1+(YEAR(A1+1)=YEAR(A1)

and copy down to A366

or even just put =IF(YEAR(A365+1)=YEAR(A365),A365+1,"") in A366

```Hi Thalia,

With one exception (1900) Excel knows exactly which years are leap years. If
you just add 1 day, it will skip from Feb 28 to Mar 1 on one year, and to
Feb 29 in another.

```Hi Niek,
I know that, My issue is that I have a whole year of dates from Jan 1st to
Dec 31, and on a leap year I would have one extra day.  in cell A2 I input
the first day of the year say 01/01/05 and in the cell below I wrote the
formula =A2+1 and carried that formula down to get all the cells I need for
the year.  On 2008 I will need an extra cell in the end for the extra year
wich will display 12/01/08 but in other years if I leave that cell it will
display the first day of the next year and I don't want it to be displayed
unless it's a leap year.

```Hi Bob,
Thank you, I used the second formula and it works, I tried the first one and
I don't know why it didn't work.

29th of February in the year 1900
The year 1900 was not a leap year and we all know that but Excel will show a 29 of February for that year. We also know that there was a bug in Lotus 1-2-3 so Microsoft decided to leave things the way they were in Excel so Lotus users would have less code to change if they wanted to switch to Excel. My question is: "February 29th 1900 is a Wednesday. That makes the 1st of April 1900 a Thursday (it should have been a Wednesday). Every following day, including today, is then offset by one week day. How come Excel calculates today, September 8th 2003, as a Monday. Where in between ...

I recently migrated from Excel 5 to Excel 2000 and I have a question about comments. Is there a way to make comments behave like notes in excel 5?

I tried to hide comments in the view settings but each time I view a comment the view preference is reset to the default.

When this spread is open in Excel97 the home key will make the cell in column A of current row active.

Custom color question + smooth chart curves question
I have prepared a large number of Excel templates that have charts I pre-defined for the user. Each of the user-defined charts I set up uses colors that are non-standard (I added them into the color palette using RGB values). These custom colors conform to a corporate palette. These Excel templates were set up so that users could develop charts that they would paste into a Word template that had also been set up to conform to many of the same colors. Within Excel, I actually added the custom swatches to the palette, along the bottom row, which has room for such user-defined colors. The inten...
