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

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

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.
