  • 2. Search Range for Criteria in given cell and produce results
    I have a spreadsheet that has two worksheet. Worksheet "start" has two columns - Column A is a date Column B is a number - rows contain dates and continuous numbers EX Row 1 = 0000417 Row 2 = 0000418 Row 3 = 0000419 - each with a date of 060105. Worksheet "clear" has two columns - basically the same as Worksheet "start" - difference is they are not in sequence and not always the same numbers and they are scrambled. I don't want to sort this data. I would like to use Worksheet "Clear" - Take the first Row and determine if the first Number is on Worksheet "start" - if it is then tell me what the date is from Worksheet "start" - if not then leave it blank and repeat this for all given numbers. I am unable to get the RANGE to work for each individual cell on Worksheet "clear". It works cell by cell but not by range. EX of formula tested IF((CLEAR!A1=START!A1:A25),START!B1,"NONE") The results show {TRUE;FALSE;FALSE.... So that the last value is the only thing that appears in this cell - therefore getting a NONE result because the last result is FALSE... once the value is met - I'd like to search the rest of the cells to pull each date for each item...

    I am wondering if there is way to change the font size, font color, or tab color so it is easier to keep my sheets straight. I dont really want to make a table of contents or anything like that, I just need certain sheets to stand out more than others.

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 
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:
