Can anyone tell me whether it is possible to generate boolean date format(yyyyddd or dddyyy) from normal date format (ddmmyy,mmddyy or yymmdd) in a spread sheet?
Actually I have a spread sheet with ddmmyy date format on it. I need to convert them to boolean date format in order to calculate no of days using the system dats.
If I can get this spread sheet boolean date format then I would be able to create a macro to obtain the no of days due.
Please let me know if you have any idea to do this !!!

If the data is actually stored in Date format, the easiest way ,ight be to change the Date Display setting under Regional Settings in Control Panel.

Assuming Microsoft Excel.
- Open a new sheet.
- Highlight cells A1 and A2. Right-click them and select Format Cells... Under the Number tab, select Date in the Category window and 03/04/97 (or similar) in the Type window then click OK.
- Right click cell A3 and select Format Cells... Under the Number tab, select Number in the Category window, set 0 Decimal places and click OK.
- Type the following in cell A1:
- Type the following in cell A2:
- Type the following in cell A3:
- The results you now see in cell A3, i.e.,
is the difference, in days, between the two dates in cells A1 and A2.
