Excel not updating formula after change Tanner dating
On the dropdown list, verify that Automatic is selected.
When this option is set to automatic, Excel recalculates the spreadsheet’s formulas whenever you change a cell value.
Step 2 Now the function is written we can switch back to the worksheet.
Next step is to get the numerical value of a background colour.
Step 1 First of all we need to create a custom Excel function.
Creating a custom excel function will then return a numeric value based on the cell’s background colour.
I personally tend to like the dd-mmm-yyyy or the mmm-dd-yyyy formats so that there is no room left for ambiguity. In the end your formula should look something like this =DATE(2009,6,28) The DATE formula can result in the following error values: If the parameters specified in the year, month or day cause the resulting date to exceed the minimum and maximum limits (January 0, 1900 and December 31, 9999 in Excel 2003), the DATE function would result in the #NUM! If the parameters have been specified incorrectly (entering string instead of a number), the DATE function can result in the #NAME? For example, say you entered “jul” as the month instead of 7 (which is the number representing the month July) and entered =DATE(2009, jul, 30), that would result in the #NAME? Again, just like the month parameter mentioned above, the day is not limited to numbers lying between 1 and 31 but can be any number (negative or positive) till such time that the minimum and maximum limits for the date, as mentioned above, are not breached.For Example if you were to write a date function as =DATE(2009,4,35) it would give you a date 35 days ahead of 1-Apr-2009. Similarly you could use a negative number generate a date in the past.For the purposes of this example the formula will show Yes or No depending on the cell colour.But you could simply replace this part with whatever calculation you want to run depending on whether it is true or false.
