Hello..

I'm sure this has been asked many times but I could not find teh anwer by searching the forums.

I need a simple true false test to validate a date cell. i.e. 00/01/1900 should be false.

Can someone please assist?

Thanks

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

Does the date already exist in the cell or is someone entering it from the keyboard?

If the latter, you could use Data > Data Validation with Allow set to Date.

If the former, Zack Barresse has written a function which will do the job: http://www.vbaexpress.com/kb/getarticle.php?kb_id=323.
