You want the same date in all of those cells, or incremented by some amount?

You should just click on the first instance, and double-click on the lower right corner where it becomes a plus-sign. That will auto-fill everything until the end of what Excel thinks is the end of the column.

I think I figured it out...just converted the dates/times to total seconds and it makes it a lot easier to manipulate.

Still sucks though.

Probably too later, and not totally sure I understand what you are trying to do, but my guess is you just want to advance by one hour every row going down?

If so, in cell B2, enter both the date and the time (8/1/2018 1:22:52 PM). Format it so that it only shows the time. In A2, just refer to B2 (=B2) and format that one to show the date.

In cell B3, just enter the formula (=B2+(1/24)). That will advance it by one hour. Then just copy the formulas in the two columns down until you get where you want to be.

Alright here's a fun one.

Lets say I want to create a WFM log for employees, so I create a "Roster" sheet on the first tab. I use the Name Manager to create a Name called "Roster", that refers to column A in the "Roster" sheet. Then, if I use the formula "=ROSTER" in the first column pf every subsequent Sheet, it will show a live update when a new employee is added to the ROSTER tab.

However, if I have formulae (using INDEX+MATCH or otherwise) or data in each row on the other sheets, when a new employee is added to the ROSTER sheet, it bumps the rest down in column A, but all the other columns stay in place.

Ultimately, how do I make it so when an employee is added to the Roster (and ergo added to the =ROSTER reference), it also effectively inserts a new Row in every associated sheet and keeps my formulae intact?

Figured it out using a combo of VBA, Index+Match function and workbook group edits.

Got rid of the Names altogether.

I want to set up a check-box at the end of a proof in a spreadsheet that I use for multiple legal entities. The check-box must be clicked to show the user did a final check of the proof. However, is there a way to force Excel to un-check this box if something in the proof changes? That way you'll know if the user did the final check and confirmed everything was okay and nothing was changed afterwards. Any ideas?

Never mind on my question above, I've found a different solution. I'm going to add to the control page a threshold that is acceptable for the proof to be out. Sometime the proof will have to be zero, and sometimes within 1,000 is okay. By putting the threshold in the control panel page, I can update the threshold and then have an automatic check if the proof is reasonable.

I have a question that I hope somebody might be able to help with. We are looking to make cells in Excel fillable with a date picker; similar to what you can do in Google Sheets.

First you set the cell properties



Then when you double click on the cell you get a date picker:



We are using O365 installed on the desktop. We see a 3rd party app that claims to do this, but installing it comes with security issues of the 3rd party getting some level of access to the sheet.

Also tried saving the Google sheet as .xlsx and it didn't work.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Yeah, unfortunately that's the 3rd party app that also gets access to the Excel sheet that you are working on. Thanks though.

Hey guys I am having trouble with an excel formula. I am trying to to compile totals on a summary page over 12 sheets (months of year). I know sumif with indirect should be able to do this but I can't wrap my head on the formula.

on Summary Tab I want the sum total in j20 (this is the name searching in b5:35)

on each month tab I need to search for a specific name in b5:b35 and then add the corresponding totals between d5:d35

Each month is named Jan,Feb,Mar etc..

Do you even need to worry about indirect?

I just did 3 months and a random bunch of names in B5:B35

Code:
=SUMIF(Jan!B5:B9, "John", Jan!D5:D9)+SUMIF(Feb!B5:B9, "John", Feb!D5:D9)+SUMIF(Mar!B5:B9, "John", Mar!D5:D9)
Instead of the name in quotations you could point it to another cell that has the name you want to add to the total

Code:
 =SUMIF(Jan!B5:B9, Summary!J1, Jan!D5:D9)

Thanks that works fine. I was hoping to save time typing by using the fancier formula but I guess why break something that works

Is there a reason why it's all on different sheets? Probably easier to put it all together and pivot table it. Less chance for error that way too.

edit: If you don't know what a pivot table is or how it works, the tutorial built into excel is super useful. You can find it in "File, New" in Office365

I haven't messed around with pivot tables but it may be of use if I can dumb it down enough for other team members. We have the different sheets to track activities by the month and doing month by month plus yearly analysis which could probably be accomplished by a pivot table as well

Once you get the data set up in a pivot table, it would just be a matter of refreshing the table for new entries and then turning the filters to get what you want
The filtering is pretty straight forward, just dropdowns.

Depending on the size of your business you could even go as far as setting up an analytics interface with PowerBI or more costly, Tableau
(Apparently Power BI is included in all Office 365 subscriptions if your work already has this)
