Beginning of the month formula

Beginning of the month formula
If A1 has 31Jan07 then this formula in A2 will show 1Jan07 (no need to
'select A1): =DATE(YEAR(A1),MONTH(A1),1). You may need to format the cell as it might display the date as 01/01/2007 You want something "For the rest of the year"? Not clear what this means. If B1 has a Feb date then the same formula copied to B2 will work. best wishes  Bernard V Liengme Microsoft Excel MVP www.stfx.ca/people/bliengme remove caps from email "Geo" > wrote in message ... > Looking for the formula (non array) for the start of a month selected. > ie: if i select 31Jan 07 in cell A1. > Cell A2 will show 01Jan07 > and so on for the rest of the year? >  > Geo

Beginning of the month formula
Thanks bernard,
I have a validation drop down list that when I select January then on cells A1 will show Beginning of that month and A2 the end of that month. The drop down list has Jan to Dec. I just need to sort the cells out to show the dates of the present year.

Beginning of the month formula
With your start date in A1 try:
=A1DAY(A1)+1 If by: > and so on for the rest of the year? you mean you want each 1st of the month from then on then try: =B1+33DAY(B1+33)+1  HTH Sandy In Perth, the ancient capital of Scotland and the crowning place of kings Replace @mailinator.com with @tiscali.co.uk "Geo" > wrote in message ... > Looking for the formula (non array) for the start of a month selected. > ie: if i select 31Jan 07 in cell A1. > Cell A2 will show 01Jan07 > and so on for the rest of the year? >  > Geo >

Beginning of the month formula
Try that again.
In some cell you can get any of: "JAN", "FEB" ...... Are these text or dates that just display the month? Does A1 automatically display 1Jan2007 when the 'dropdown' cell has JAN? You originally said it has 31Jan2007 I want to help so please keep at it.

Beginning of the month formula
If your drop down list contains the month names as TEXT entries: January,
February, March, April, etc... (they can also be the short month names: Jan, Feb, Mar, etc) Assume the drop down is in cell C1. For the 1st of the month (for the CURRENT year) in cell A1: =("1 "&C1)+0 Format as DATE For the end of the month (for the CURRENT year) in cell A2: If you have the Analysis Toolpak addin installed: =EOMONTH(A1,0) If you don't have the Analysis Toolpak addin installed: =A1+32DAY(A1+32) Format as DATE  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "Geo" > wrote in message ... > Thanks bernard, > I have a validation drop down list that when I select January then on > cells > A1 will show Beginning of that month and A2 the end of that month.
