ATTEMPTING TO CREATE A SPREADSHEET THAT WOULD ALLOW START DATE AND DEADLINE, CANT PRODUCE INFO WITH FORMULA WORKDAY=

The WorkDay Function returns a number that's the serial date that is the indicated number of working days from a given date (the starting date). Working days EXCLUDE weekends and any dates identified as holidays. Use WORKDAY to exclude weekends or holidays when you calculate invoice due dates, expected delivery times, or the number of days of work performed.

The Syntax is:

=WORKDAY(start_date,days,holidays)

where:

- start_date is in Date format (and can be a calculated value);

- days is a number of elapsed days after start_date (can be calculated, can be negative to indicate a date BEFORE start_date);

- holidays is an array of holidays you can specify if desired.

Change the format to General, and see if you get a number like 40105, which is the same as 10/29/2009.

In the first row of numbers, assume row 3 for example (leaving 2 rows for titles, put in cell E3: =C3+D3. In the next row (assuming row 4, put in cell E4: =C4+D4+E3. Use fill down to populate this formula all the way down.

not sure if this is what you are after entirely but should at least help you out some what

=DATEDIF(A3,C3,"m")/3

As you said you cant just divide by 3 but I have divided the formula by 3 to see how many 3 months will go into the output you could maybe have another formula to divide it by 2 to see if it will divide by 2 to see if you get a whole number or not, if you do then you can just return the first part before the dot ( using split function ) and if the value is less then 1 then obviously the 3 months has not passed between the 2 dates

Assuming you put the start date in cell A1, put this formula:

=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+15,DAY(A1))

in the cell where the result wanted to be appeared.

P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+15,DAY(A1))

in the cell where the result wanted to be appeared.

use the below formula to get the date of the LWD (Monday thru Friday) of the month.

Assumed that if the date in cell A1 is 6-May-2005. then formula will be

=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,0)-(MAX(0,WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,0),2)-5))

Assumed that if the date in cell A1 is 6-May-2005. then formula will be

=DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,0)-(MAX(0,WEEKDAY(DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1)+1,0),2)-5))

dpprash,

I guess you mean the number of weekdays (or working days) excluding Saturdays and Sundays. So start a spreadshhet and put the start date (01/01/2009) in A2 and the end date (31/12/2009?) in B2.

Then paste the formula below into C2:

=B2-A2-2*INT((B2-A2+WEEKDAY(A2,3))/7)-MAX(0,WEEKDAY(B2,3)-4

Hello ycool11,
If your asking what i think you are the formula would be

=(a2-a1)*24

That assumes a2 is that last date entered and a1 is the initial starting date. if you would like a more intense formula let me know and i'm sure i can help.

I have created a spreadsheet for you to a) use and b) to learn from.

It is an Automated spreadsheet (as they should be) which calculates the number of minutes in a working week or month and calculates the average time per email giving Daily, Weekly and Monthly Outputs. It takes into account Public Holidays (or for time off). You can use the Output to create Graphs etc to visually display the Output.

It also allows you to calculate a Part Month average.

I have displayed it as it was CONSTRUCTED and as it would be USED.

The As Used worksheet is Protected and the only Inputs that can be done are in the Green Boxes (also the Saturday and Sunday boxes but you will need to Unhide the Validation List to include these and then to add 2 more columns titled Is Saturday? and Is Sunday? with the appropriate If Statement.

To unprotect the sheet go to Tools - Protection - Unprotect. There is no password so leave this blank.

All the workings are still there, the columns are just Hidden. To Unhide them, highlight the columns to the left and right of the hidden columns, click on Format - Columns - Unhide. To hide them again, highlight the columns that you want hidden, click on Format - Columns - Hide.

The LOGIC used (as in Functions) may seem complex but if you read the Descriptions in the first row you should be able to work out what and why it was done that way. Click on a cell to see what Function was used where.

You said that your spreadsheet was becoming a real mess, well I have created a monster for you (but not a mess).

I have uploaded the file to here:

Hope this gives you the push to really start using Excel.

Hi,
I guess you mean vacation accrual. It's hard to help you here, without knowing the exact accrual formula.
However here are some tips:
Set up a column with the start date for each employee and use the today() function to get today's date.
You can use the days360() funtion to calculate the number of days between two dates, assuming regular 30 days/month.
For more date related functions, click on the Fx (letter f with an subscript x) to the left of the value/formula entry field at the top of the spreadsheet. Thsi gives you a wizard with a list of functions. Select the Data/Time group and you see all available functions and can interactively pull them together.
Good luck
