  • 1. Can I automatically extend formulas to added lines in Excel 20
    Thanks very much. I've actually had that happen in the past after I entered data, and didn't know why. But I am working on a new spreadsheet, and nothing I try seems to extend the formulas, even entering data - I'm still stumped.

  • 2. Wy is Excel automatically rounding my sums?
    I can't figure out how to make it display the actual sum. The formula doesn't show any kind of roundup function in it. Has anyone dealt with this already?
  • 3. update consolidated sheet when data is added to worksheets
    As I add numberic information to a number of worksheets I want the consolidation sheet to be updated with the new total. I find that when I have information going to the consolidation sheet then enter a new value in the worksheet that the total of the column is not reflected in the consolidation sheet. The consolidation sheet still shows the total that was and is in the cell that was used for totalling in the first calculation. Can I make the value shown in the consolidation sheet a "floating" cell from the worksheet?

automatic dates in a column

I know this is an elementary question, but I do not have a manual, and
the "Help" doesn't open in Excel.  I've used Excel for several years,
made graphs, etc., but I still don't know how to do the following.

The first column needs to be consecutive dates, e.g., 1/1/04, 1/2/04,
1/3/04, 1/4/04, etc.  I have been entering each date in manually, but I
know there must be a simple way for Excel to do this for me.  I have to
enter dates for the entire year.

Can anyone help?  Thanks for your patience.

Put the date in the first cell, select the cell again, move the cursor to
the lower right corner of the cell,
copy it down by left clicking and holding down the mouse button while
dragging downwards

4.Separating dates from one column to Month, Date, Year columns

I'm looking for a way to take a list of dates that are being cut and pasted 
from an Access Database into excel and separate it so I can sort by Month, 
Day, Year.  The data seems to be recognized in Excel as a date because it 
sorts by the the year.  The format is mm/dd/yyyy.  When I try to change the 
format to anything else, it won't allow the change. column based on existing date column

If your end date is in A1, then in B1 use:
