In column 'C' type '=Date(B1,A1,1)'

Where B1 is your year and A1 is the numeric month.

    Re: Excel Help

    you could probably concatenate it, but I'm not sure if it would then read the result as a date if you're trying to do further analysis

    Re: Excel Help

    So I need a timeline of events displayed along a horizontal line with elapsed time hash marks.

    Something along the lines below. It's for individual illustrations on a case by case basis.

    Anyone have any tips to get there? I've blown about an hour digging around it's definitely not intuitive. I don't have trouble with the elapsed time, I am having trouble getting a graph to look like that.

    What do you mean "I don't have trouble with the elapsed time". What are you plotting on the vertical access?

    Like a gantt chart?

    If that format works for you, I can make it more dynamic. It's static now.

    Re: Excel Help

    Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier Rog. Thank your for the help. I'll give this a look in the morning and see if I figure it out from advice.

    We have a monthly meeting where case vignettes are discussed and they make these, by hand, every month for a couple dozen patients. The data elements are in a database (it's essentially a table of Event 1 @ 02/07/2017 15:34, Event 2 @ 02/07/2017 15:39 etc). Some patients have 5 Events, some have 7 or 9 etc depending on the treatment given that individual case). The important part is the various elapsed times between events in the course of the patient care.

    I'm used to looking at the table and pulling out the outliers or just using quick filters on raw numbers, committee is used to the timeline with hash marks and elapsed times. Try as I might, I was unable to make any headway on convincing them that we could just use the actual numbers and parameters, they have to see it. The admin assistant has retired and the new one basically begged for help not making versions of that red and green whiteboard drawing attached in my first post. I didn't think to put it in a gantt as I was focused on duplicating what they've been used to, that's a great suggestion; thank you.

    Thanks for taking a look at it at all, I appreciate the advice.

    Anytime. If you need any additional help or advice, let me know. If you're using an Access DB, the whole thing could easily be automated.

    I set up a gantt for them. Hopefully everyone will be fine with that but there's some older physicians that really hate change in any form so I'll know next month. I just felt really bad for the gal when she realized she was going to hand type a bunch of labels in every month just for this meeting.

    There's something just infuriating about not using data when it's already in a table. Pet peeve. Thanks again.

    Huge pet peeve of mine as well. You're welcome. Let me know if I can provide any additional assistance.

    Re: Excel Help

    Been looking to get more familiar with excel. Are there any good tutorials or guides that are worth looking into? I can do basic things like sum and whatnot, not much beyond that, looking to gain a little more knowledge.

    Not really needing a specific area either, just want to be well rounded and quicker than I am currently.

    Try Udemy. They have tons of courses that'll help you out in just about anything tech related. Don't pay full price cause it's probably not worth it, but they usually offer steep discounts on a regular basis. Plenty of excel courses for you there.

    Depending on what version of excel you have, there are some nice templates that are already set up. If you go to set up a "new" sheet, there should be an area with sample templates - usually a "personal budgeting" template will be there

    Let me know if it's not and I can send you something

    Re: Excel Help

    Hey Rog (or anybody else). I know this one's easy with conditional formatting, is there an easier way to do it? What would the formula look like for the conditional formatting?

    So, I've got a huge workbook for my finances. Tracks all my money in & all my money out. I've written it all from scratch, and it's been a huge work in progress. Just a little side project I'm working on.

    One of the sheets is all 12 months at a glance, and hidden below that is (along with some other random info) all of my projected expenditures and income for that month.

    What I want is if that line has already been paid (I have another sheet with all of my transactions) or the paycheck has been deposited, format the font to include a strikethrough so I can see visually what's been paid without having to look it up.

    If you'd rather I send you the .xlsx I can do that too, there's a lot going on behind the scenes (the values are all pulled from other sheets, for instance, as well as the due dates...) and once you see that it may make it easier?

    If you want screenshots pm me.

    The formula would look the same in conditional formatting as if you had the formula in the cell of your spreadsheet.

    If you have multiple worksheets within your workbook, then it might be easiest to just send me the file. I'm happy to help any other way but, if you just want this done, sending me the workbook is the easiest for me and would be the fastest for you.

    Re: Excel Help

    I just sent you the file back with my notes. I think your workbook could use a couple of small changes and then you'll be able to do what you want easily. If you want to PM me your password so I can edit it, I can make the changes and then send it back the way I think it would work best.
