Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10
2004 which is not a ra...VBA

I have used MS Money 95 for years, and it works just fine for me on Windows

I can nolonger find my original install disk. Will the latest versions of

I have designed an Access database that holds records relating to my stores
audit results going back for about 5 years plus a load more information
relating to these stores. This was used to produe a pack once a month,
however a change in senior management means that I have got to shelve this
and prodce a similar pack in Excel.
The idea would be that the user could select a month or a 12 mnth date range
that would produce data that could then be used to populate a number of excel
templates that have been designed. Having not used excel for years I would be
