hi Folks
Just wondering if there is any quick way to do the following...
1/1/2014
1/1/2014
2/1/2014
2/1/2014
I can quickly replicate a single date or a day on day sequence but was wondering if there is any quick way to do the sequence above..

Hi,

In A1 insert 1/1/2014 then in A2 the formula

= A1+0.5 then fill down if you have a date format you will only see the same date twice one at midnigth the other at noon

Try this if I understood you perfectly,
=IF(A1=A2,A1+1,A2)

Open in new window

Cell A1=1/1/2014 & Cell A2= 1/1/2014


Thanks

I can not find anything really handy. Only to create 2 culimns with the dates and in third combine them.
In A column date>blank>date>blank and drag it down
In B column blank>date>blank>date and drag it down
In C column combine values from A and B

see in the sample

Hi

like I said, when you enter a date without time it assumes it is 0:00 by adding 0.5 it adds 12 hours , by adding another 0.5 hence 12 hours you get the next day

Does the trick - was hoping there was some way just using the mouse on its own. But this does it.. :-) Thank you.

Actually you can go to

Home / Editing/ Fill / Series

then choose Type Date / Date unit Day / Step Value 0.5 to have the same result

You will have to copy the date of your stop value
