Creating a Combined Date/Time Shortcut
I know Excel provides shortcuts for entering the date (CTRL + ;) and the =
time (CTRL + SHIFT + ;), but I really need one that will enter both the =
and time in the same cell at the same time. (Since Excel does provide=20
formatting for same-cell date and time, it seems kind of odd that there =
a shortcut to facilitate entry.) Is it possible to create an entirely =
that doesn't use macros? (This last point is important, since the =

Our organization has an in-house security tool that generates a text file
with lists of policies and violations. A VB script reads that text file and
populates certain cells on an excel file. There is one column for each db and
one row for each policy. All are SQL 2000 and 2005 version.
New policies are not covered by the tool. So it needs to be tool+manual
scrips, or PBM, maybe?
I wonder if it can be done through Policy Based Management. I am not sure
how easy to generate a similar excel file out of SQL Server policies. Has

I am trying to find a simple way of moving data in horizontal columns

I can do this through the pivot table, but this is a long drawn out process.
I'm not sure if this will work for you, but you can try this:

- Now highlight the vertical area you want these value to got

You can't use it like that regardless of formatting, you need to put in the

ww...parsing a date and time field #2
I am having trouble parsing the date and time in a field. I download
data from a data base and the date and time come together in one
field. I want to seperate the two. The date and time comes across as
the following: "2/1/2009 14:37" in the cell. When I parse it, it
seperates into three columns as follows: "2/1/2009", 2:37 AM", and
"PM" I can see what is going on but I would like to get two columns
with one as the date and the other as the correct time. are they any
ideas on how to address this?
