  • 4. Numbers stored as text
    I am having a problem with numbers being stored as text in Excel. I am exporting the data from a SQL Server dB using a DTS package. I have tried converting the fields before export in DTS and this does seem to work temporarily, but the Excel file will eventually convert to all text. I have read the help regarding converting these fields from "numbers stored as text" to numbers, and have forwarded that information on to the end users. However, this can be only a temporary solution, as the end users do not want to do this every day. Thanks in advance for any help!

    I'm looking for recommendations on books to use to study for the MCAS test. I have passed the test for Excel 2003 and would like to do the same for 2007. I have not been using 2007 very long. (I'm hoping the studying will get me up to speed more quickly, too.) 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
