Fill Series Dates: not letting me change the series from year to m


M

Mike

Hi, I am using 2003 and was copying a series of dates from a spreadsheet (
2003) into a new spreadsheet. I then wanted to use the Fill Series to
display ascending months on these dates e.g. 01/01/2008, 02/01/2008 etc.
However, it is only doing the years in a series. I went into Edit>Fill Series
and selected DATE and MONTH as my settings but still no joy.

Is their some settings that is preventing me from changing the series
automatically?

Check the entry in the cells after the copy process... I think you will find
an apostrophe in front of each "date" meaning they are not dates, but text
that looks like a date. If you remove the apostrophes, it should then work
as you expect.
