  • 1. Best method to populate cell based upon drop down list selection
    I am trying to populate a cell with text based upon a drop down list selection. I have tried the following but when tested, results are not always correct (a toucan is a bird, but a palmino is not a dog) Also, african grey returns #N/A. =LOOKUP(G16,{"pointer","collie","poodle","palomino","thoroughbred","quarter","parakeet","african grey","toucan"},{"dog","dog","dog","horse","horse","horse","bird","bird","bird"}) What am I missing? Drop Down List pulls from a source within the worksheet.

  • 4. Vlookup will not retrun value
    I have a very simple formula =VLOOKUP(M3,Days!$A$5:$I$28,9,FALSE) When I change M3 to N3 and hit enter, I see =VLOOKUP(N3,Days!$A$5:$I$28,9,FALSE) displayed. How do I get this to retun the value and not the text string?

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

I'm looking for a way to take a list of dates that are being cut and pasted

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:
