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

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+;

It's the same date, it's just formatted differently o...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.

...Hiding tasks with due dates in the distant future
I'd like to display only my tasks for the next month or so. How can I filter
out those that are in the distant future or recurring tasks that won't be
due until next year or the year after?
Goto the Tasks folder.
Goto the Customize current view. Click on the Filter Button.
Goto the Advanced Tab. Under define more criteria, clickon the Feilds and
then select All Task Feilds and then select Due Date.
Then under the condition Select Between and then in the Value enter the
range of dates ( say 3/8/2004 and 3/10/2004 ).

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.
