To be notified 7 days before todays date


I have dated deliveries for the future which are listed in a column of a spreadsheet. I wish to be notified 7 days before this date automatically by a cell being highlighted (turn red) in the same row of this date so it reminds me to send out letters to customers of impending deliveries.

This is too complicated for a help site like this, you are going to want to consult an excel forum, or some excel professional in your area. This is far beyond the scope of what you can expect for $15, which I'm sure you now realize after 10 days of trying.

Thanks

Transforming birthdates into year codes


Here is a solution that might work for you. Please be mindful that there are several different solutions that will achieve the same thing in Excel (I am assuming Excel is your software).

1) Make sure each column in your spreadsheet has a heading.

2) Highlight (select) the column of birthdays.

3) Choose Format from the menu bar.

4) Choose Cells... from the drop-down menu.

5) For the "category", choose Custom.

6) In the "type" box, type yyyy

7) Click OK and when you return to your spreadsheet, you will see only the years displayed. However, when you try to edit a cell, you will see that the entire birth date is stored and preserved.

8) Now, highlight the entire table

9) Then, choose Data from the menu bar

10) Choose Subtotals... from the drop-down menu

11) In the "At each change in" box, choose the name of the column with the birth dates

12) In the "Use function" box, choose Count

13) Leave all other choices at their defaults

14) Click OK, and you are done.

Using this method, you can continue to enter the data as you always have. In that way, the birth date info is never actually destroyed or converted. What you are doing is simply deciding what is displayed.

I hope this helps.

Reminder in excel


There are a couple of types of spreadsheet - Depending on the size of the data you are working with - filter may the quickest option or Query report.

Your worksheet will contain all your data i.e. Customer, contact no, outstaning actions and due date - You can create a filter aon this set criteria on the due data - as less than or equal to todays date - which will only display your outstanding actions required by today or earlier.

Another option if you have installed MS Query, is to create a seperate report - again using the criteria of due date being less than or equal to today.

Producing this from your existing data is much easier than trying to re-create your data - But I can send you how I would create this sheet if the above explanation is not easy to follow - If you let me have your email address.

Hi running word 2003 have an auto fill in the date feature installed on a fax template how do I disable it. if I open up previous documents composed the present date populates yet the document was composed...


This is caused by the document using a "field" and not an actual date. Press <ALT+F9> to see the date's field code. You will probably see: { DATE } or { DATE @ "M/d/yyyy" } (NOTE: The M/d/yyyy formatting may be different for you; since this is personal choice). You can manually delete the field and type in your date. To automate this, open the TEMPLATE (*.DOT) and change the field by using: Insert > Field... and selecting "CreateDate" from the Field names list. Also - set your desired format too and then click <OK>. Save the change to your template and it will use the date you create the fax and keep that date if the fax is saved as a document and reopened in the future.

Creating vacation accrual spreadsheet


Here is one way to do it:
1. In column A enter the name
2. In column B enter their start date in the format day-month-2008 (31-12-2008 for Dec. 31, 2008); if a day is less than 10, put zero in front (03, 04, etc.)
3. In column C put 31-12-2008 (December 31, 2008, the last day of the year)
4. In column D, put C1-B1 and format as a number with 2 places after the period (10.25 for example) if you want to track partial days, other format for no zeroes after the period (13)
5. In column E, put this formula:
(D2/30)*1.25 (assuming this is line 2)
You can then copy these lines as many times as you need to, total them, etc.

Creating a holiday accrual spreadsheet.


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 K
