Working with Dates and Times
Excel uses a serial number system to store dates. The earliest date that Excel can understand is
January 1, 1900. This date has a serial number of 1. January 2, 1900, has a serial number of 2, and
so on.
Most of the time, you don’t have to be concerned with Excel’s serial number date system. You
simply enter a date in a familiar date format, and Excel takes care of the details behind the
scenes. For example, if you need to enter August 15, 2010, you can simply enter the date by
typing August 15, 2010 (or use any of a number of different date formats). Excel interprets your
entry and stores the value 40405, which is the serial number for that date.                                                             Search JabSto ::
