The only problem with it is that, when you press F9 or recalculate formulas, the now() will be changed to reflect latest date and time.A good alternative (although manual) is to use keyboard shortcuts CTRL ; or CTRL : to insert current date and time in the active cell.When you press a key combination such as Ctrl ; to insert the current date in a cell, Excel “takes a snapshot” of the current date and then inserts the date in the cell.Because that cell’s value doesn’t change, it’s considered static.I know there may be some scripting involved possibly, just wanting to know if this is possible and how I may need to go about doing it.How can I make cells I10 and I11, with =TODAY() and =NOW() in them, respectively. I need this time to be updated every minute, is there a way for excel to automatically do that. Thanks in advance Public Next Scheduled Update As Variant Sub Update Date Time() Range("My Date"). Calculate Next Scheduled Update = Now Time Serial(0, 1, 0) Application.
To turn the iterative calculation, and thus enable usage of circular formulas, go to menu iteration area.I am using 2 different versions of excel (2003, 2007) and having the same problem in both: the now() function is not updating in real time. Thinking it was my workbook, I started going through all VBA and worksheet formulas looking for problems but couldn't find any.Then I tried using the NOW() function in a new workbook and have the same problem. This is because Excel behaves as if the date 1900-Feb-29 existed.The year 1900 was not a leap year (the year 2000 is a leap year).We have a shared workbook Excel 2010 document that is being updated by several users at once.Regardless of how you have formatted a cell to display a date or time, Excel always internally stores dates And times the same way.We have a folder specifically for inbound and one for outbound, with item codes for each material.What I am wanting to know is there a way for me to point Excel to Folder A and then to Folder B then get the sum as a real time update?Microsoft decided to continue Lotus' bug, in order to fully compatible.Users who switched from 123 to Excel would not have to make any changes to their data.
