  • 3. How can I add the same text, ex 'Fa-09' to every cell in a column
    I'm trying to add the text 'Fa-09' to every cell in a column that already has existing text. I know 'merging' the cells together will simply take the value from the first column and overwrite the other column. I tried 'consolidating' but that is more for numerical data... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

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:
