# Date formula In Excel 32

Hello Everybody

I’m your excel guru and today I have brought you a formula of excel called Date. DATE

Well, it cannot get you a date exactly, I don’t know. But it can help you in getting a date typed onto your excel sheet. OK
See, in certain cases sometimes what happens, people type in dates in this form. You may have data in this form, like this, you have a serial number, then you have Days, these are the dates, this is the Month and this is the year. Now you want to have it in this form like 2nd Oct 2010. This is what it is, 2 nd Day 10th Month, 10th Year. Now you want to have it in this format. How can you have that? Well we can have it using the date formula. I will tell you how see.
It starts with Date = Date. Well, I have taught ok let’s see Date, I have taught this. Date Value I have taught, Date Average I have taught, D Average no D Average Yes I have taught D Average I have taught Day, have taught Days360 Well I have taught everything How cool.
So In excel 2007 and above, it’s a very good thing that when you start typing the initials of a formula name, the formulas relevant to that to that spelling show up so if you just select the formula and press tab. You don’t need to type the complete name and even the bracket would open up itself. So the first thing it is asking is for a year so this is the year its asking then a comma its asking for a month so I select this month then comma its asking for a day this is the date I press Enter. See I got 2nd Oct 1910. Well Excel is living in the year 1910. Bill gates Sir look into this. Ok
This can now be replicated. You can change replicate it further below also and you can also change the formatting. Simply change the formatting. Format cells do a right click format cells. Go to date you can choose a long date over here. And here is the long date. That’s so easy
Let’s try something else. Let’s try this one Alright. OK and We will do it in another manner .We will go to Formulas tab we will got to insert function. We will type in date Click on go here comes date OK its asking for a year and the year is over here this is the year this is the month the month would be this and the day would be this and here is the answer 18 5 1911 see what if we had 2011 mentioned over here see this changed. So this is the date function for you.
Until then, until the next video
So this is your Excel guru signing off for the day.
Happy Excel Learning!
