This formula doesn't work: = day(today())

Except from spreading one formula into 2, is it possible to make it workable in
1 formula?
If so, how?

It works for me.  Make sure that you format the cell as General after you
enter the formula.   HTH   Otto

Thanks for all.
Problems solved.

The reason of not working is:
- after I entered the formula, Excel will help me to change the cell format into
"date". That's the problem.
Is there any way to stop this automatic change?

Your formula contains an invalid external reference to a worksheet
I'm sure this has been asked before, but I've just wasted a whole day trying to find a solution and got nowhere! I have a complex spreadsheet which I inherited from my predecessor. It contains many sheets, plus macros, chart objects, text boxes, auto shapes, etc. When I try to close the spreadsheet it objects "Your formula contains an invalid external reference to a worksheet". Try as I might, I just can't pin this down. I've tried the obvious, such as searching formulae for '[', looking in named ranges and asigned macro names to no avail. In desperation ...

How do I enter a formula to calculate a 7% sales tax? If A1 holds the pre-tax price then =A1*7% will compute the sales tax while =A1*1.7 will compute the price_with_tax-included.
