  • 1. Lookup...?
    Hi Guys, I am trying to find a matching value specificed in a particular cell within a seperate range of cells and then return the value adjacent to the matching cell from that range. For example, If I have the word "dog" in cell F6 and know it is contained somewhere within the range A7:A35, I then want excel to return the value in the cell adjacent to where "dog" is contained (ie somewhere between B7:B35). Many thanks in advance, Ant
  • 2. Page Break 10% and not adjustable
    Page break drag and drop used to cover 8 columns and 60 rows (approx). Width and length normal. When drag and drop are done, the system adds more page break lines and states fit to one page is at 10%. System allowed the changes on 10 of the 15 tabs, then just gives in to adding page breaks. No Macros, no VBA entries. Options |View | page break is checked, but greyed out. Options | Edit | Drag and Dropped is checked. Please advise on this issue and how to get page to fit 1 to 1, again.
  • 3. How to assign text to forms
    Is there a way to assign the active or selected cell on a worksheet to a TextBox on a form? This is what I have to far but it is not working. Private Sub txtSiteRw_Change() txtSiteRw.Value = Application.ActiveCell.Address If txtSiteRw.Value = "" Then Me.cmdFillForm.Enabled = False ElseIf txtSiteRw.Value <> "" Then Me.cmdFillForm.Enabled = True End If End Sub Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  • 4. Creating weekly summaries
    I have a workbook with 4 sheets used to track sales. On sheet 1 we enter the sales information. Sheet 2 is used to summarize the sales daily, sheet 3 for weekly and sheet 4 monthly. Daily summaries are pretty simple. I can use SUMIF and COUNTIF to count the number of sales for the day, and total them up. The weekly summaries seem to be a little more tricky for me. I can use column A for the first day of the week and column B for the last day of the week, but I could use a little help with the formulas to count and total the sales for the week. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks Jim

automatic dates in a column

Postby gsbbr » Thu, 08 Jan 2004 02:29:23 GMT

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,

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:
