I'm just starting to use Excel. I have a worksheet with dates down column A, for example 1-Jan, 2-Jan, etc all the way to 31-Dec. Column B is for a constant number, which should be entered on the first day of each month. Can this be done automatically as each date passes?

In January, only 1-Jan would have a value entered, the rest would be blank. On 1-Feb another value would automatically be entered.

Any help would be appreciated.

Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Hi Map,

Not quite sure what you mean, but does this serve. In B1 enter the formula: =IF(DAY(A1)=1,5,"") and copy down. That will put a 5 against each first day of the month. Amend formula to show what your constant number is.

Hi again,

Just re-read your question. If you don't want the 5 (or whatever constant you want) entering until the date is reached then enter in B1 : =IF(TODAY()>=A1,IF(DAY(A1)=1,5,""),"") and copy down.
