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.

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.

I NEED TO START A SPREADSHEET FROM SCRATH I AM A BEGINNER AT COMP


I am assuming that you want your date column to run daily - not updating itself with todays date over previous data....

In which case your column will run a daily date, You can achieve this by typing a date in the format you choose = 01/05/09, 1 May 09, etc hit return. scroll on the bottom corner of the cell you have typed the date in until it changes from a large white cross to a smaller cross and drag this down the column.

For the totals that need to subtotal autmoatically you will need to select a range - so is this total a weekly/ monthly total - How large is your range.

Once you have decided on the above - for example the in Column A the date ranges from 1st May - 31st May for a calendar month, the subtotal will need to include 31 cells - so in the Column B which is the subtotal = SUM(B2:B32)

You can copy and paste the sum into adjoining cells if you are seperating income from expenses etc.

Hope this helps.

Want to update the dates in excel spreadsheet


Try inserting seperate entry for furture day number and then reference that entry address for program math. You will have to either use same number of days to repeat (automatic) this math or accept that it would be a single shot type math. Depending on which version of excel you are using the alert can be a sound or color change. If 97 or older, there is no alert available. 2000 isn't much better.
Easier to set furture date in orginial date block right from the start. Unless you are running the excel program continuously in the background, program will only check date when running.

Good Luck,

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
