    Is there any way to force Excel to maximize the window whenever it opens, either from starting Excel or by activativating an excel file please. It is irritating to open a file, maximise it and then when reopening at a later stage it is back to a small window. Most of these files come in from other users Can i set an auto open macro on a custom template or if all else fails what is the shortcut key to maximise Thanks
  • 2. how do I add a zero in front of a bunch of 4 digit numbers?
    I have a spreadsheet with over 1000 CSI codes that are only 4 numbers. The 4 numbered CSI codes all need a Zero in front to make it a five digit code. Is there an easy way to just globally add a zero to just these 4 digit codes? Example: Wrong codes How I want them to look 2515 02515 2351 02351 7524 07524 Just hoping there is a way to avoid having to go into each cell and add a zero. Thanks for your help

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:
