    Help! Something's wrong with my excel template. The rows & column headings are all the same! That is they're 1, 2, 3, etc. This makes entering functions into cells impossible because the cell location is gone too! Can anyone help with this issue. Not sure why this has happened.

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, 
Day, Year.  The data seems to be recognized in Excel as a date because it 
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.
