  3. I have deleted some of the conditions and tried using separate for loops for each status outcome. Similar to the Date, Time is also converted to a decimal. However, one of the comments by Dave Marriot , provides a basic idea of how you can use Visual Basic for Applications for these purposes.
  4. I'd like to highlight your amazing work if there's a suitable opportunity. In other words, you can use Visual Basic for Applications to format a date and have Excel display only the day.
  5. Text will display March 24 Label2. You can change the date system if you want by clicking on Tools menu. If this or any other Tutorial has helped you, please piece your success story below. We assume that you know the basic concepts of MS Excel and Visual Basic for Applications. The following code line does work: If Int Cells i, 1. Mainly for the managers who look at this sheet and don't want a bunch of empty custodes, so the macros either hide or reveal the appropriate rows. Note: Version markers indicate the version of Excel a function was introduced. I have another part of the code that changes the color of the row based on the company who has to complete the action.
  6. Date and time functions (reference) - Regardless of which of the methods above you use, Excel displays the Format Cells dialog box. The correct order of day, month and year will not be realized by this function if it is entered in a format other than one of the recognized date settings.
  7. Visual Basic for Applications or VBA is a scripting language that enables automation of tasks in the Microsoft Office suite of products. It is leveraged by programmers to create effective and efficient macros. Today, we are going to take it a step ahead in this intermediate tutorial and take a look at a vital date function namely CDate. This function is used to convert the strings or numbers into date format. We assume that you have working knowledge of MS Excel and VBA. If you are new to this concept, we suggest you to. Date Systems in Microsoft Excel Date and time functions are frequently used in MS Excel and VBA. Please note that MS Excel stores date as sequential numbers known as serial values. MS Excel considers time to be a part of a day and it is stored as decimal fractions. Dates and times can be added and subtracted. Therefore they can be included in many calculations and VBA programs. That is you can compare two dates or subtract one date from another. There are two date systems in MS Excel- the 1900 and 1904. By default Microsoft Excel for Windows is 1900 and for Macintosh is 1904. You can change the date system if you want by clicking on Tools menu. You should also be aware that, the date system will be changed automatically when you open an Excel worksheet from another platform. That is when you open a worksheet created in Excel for Macintosh, while working in Excel for Windows, the system will automatically select the 1904 date system. The following table shows the first and last date for each date system. Date system First date Last date 1900 January 1, 1900 serial value 1 December 31, 9999 serial value 2958465 1904 January 2, 1904 serial value 1 December 31, 9999 serial value 2957003 How Microsoft Excel Interprets Two-Digit Years If you are using Microsoft Windows 2000 or later versions, the regional options in Control Panel controls how Excel interprets two-digit years. If you want MS Excel to assume the year values as you intended it to be, enter the year as a four digit value. The reason is, Excel will not interpret century. Microsoft Excel VBA has many date and time functions. A few of the important ones being Date , Day , Now , DateAdd , TimeSerial and DateSerial. It also has equal number of data type conversion functions. An important data type conversion function that is frequently used in VBA programming is CDate. What is CDate Function CDate identifies date and time literals along with some numbers that fall inside the range of acceptable dates and converts them to the date date type. If there a fractional part of the number it is converted to a time of day starting from midnight. The CDate function identifies date formats depending on the locale setting of your system. The correct order of day, month and year will not be realized by this function if it is entered in a format other than one of the recognized date settings. If the year is not specified in the date, then the current year is used. Also note that a long date format is not recognized if it also contains the day-of-the-week string. VBA CDate converts a value of any data type, string or integer, into a date type. The syntax of this date function looks like this CDate expression Here the argument expression is mandatory. When you enter a valid date and time expression this function converts it into type Date. The variables are passed through the CDate function. The output is as follows. From MS Excel versions 2000 onwards, you have VBA to automate tasks that you would otherwise perform manually. This is normally done with the help of macros. The example given below will help make the concept clear. Here is where you write the code. Select will get the date entered in the cell A1. The last two steps will move the cursor to cell C1 and display the date in column C1 when the procedure is executed. In the next program, we take a look at how to compare two dates in VBA using CDate function. However, if the dates that you are comparing are entered as numbers or string, you need to convert them using CDate function. The following example helps make the concept clear. Call that Macro whenever you want to delete rows in your table. As usual, the best way to get familiar with these formula, is to try them out for yourself.
