how to do date 15/06/04 plus 5 months?
hi what formula should i use if i want to work out the date of say
the 15/6/04 plus 5 months from now??
Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com
the only way i know is to type this formula into the cell:
the cell "A1" (or any cell) will be the cell that the
original date will be in. just add in the 6 after the MONTH
(A1) to get your new date
hope that helps

...a status like "checking" to change to date format when completed
I am creating a DB that is for Tracking engineering drawings.
I want to have a status field that has the following
1. not started
2. in process
3. in checking

Is it possible to have the complete status change to a date somehow?
I want to avoid having two fields, a status field and a complete field
I would suggest that you may want to change that to have four date fields.
That way you can easily check its status in the process and get a complete

I can't see how to format the date in the UK manner, i.e. 6/12/09, rather

Select the range to format
Choose date and look to see if the day, month year is in the order you like.
If it is, you can use that.
If it's not, choose Custom
(or what you like)
If the values don't change, then your dates aren't really dates. They're plain
old text that look like dates.
Select your range (one column at a time)

when I type a date into a cell, it automatically converts it to a date-time
and formats it according to the system parameters.
Is there any way I can turn this off? I don't want my date as a date time
nor do I want it to format to what the system format is.
I'm not sure what a "date time variable" is, but if you want an XL date,
but in the format you specify, preformat the cells with that format.
If you don't want the date converted to an XL date at all, then
preformat the cells as Text. They will then be left in whatev...CSVDE Dates in Excel

...Sorting dates, ignoring year
I have a speadsheet of birthdays which I would like to change to be

Is there an easy way to sort a column of dates but ignore the year? Or do I

You could split the dates into separate columns:

But I'd insert a helper column with formulas like:

I was wondering if anyone could let me know how I can find the difference in
days between two date fields, would appreciate the help.
Just try this.
Enter two dates ( 01/08/2003 and 21/08/2003 )
In another cell subtract the two dates, but format that cell as "General".
If all is well, just must find a 20 in that cell.
Or is it too simple and not what you want ?

One one sheet I have a time series of data sorted by month. How do I go
about (on a different sheet) using some sort of dropdown box (either
through data validation or a combo box), so that the user can select a
beginning date and end date, and the spreadsheet will display only the
information in that time period. The number of columns would have to
dynamically adjust I believe.

Using Excel 2002 - we have huge list of dates that often have no DAY, or
that only have a year. We have to sort them and don't know how.
You need to make some simple assumptions. For example, if there is no day,
then assume the day=1. If there is no month and no day, then assume 1 jan.
Then re-format the data.
Then sort in the usual fashion

aligning a series of data with the proper dates. I have 2 series of data –

etc). Series 2: Includes a value for each quarter in 2010 (e.g., Mar-10,
Jun-10, etc). After creating each series, I select the appropriate dates
(Series 1 – 2009 dates / Series 2 – 2010 dates). The first issue that I’m
