Quickly Create a Series of Dates in Excel

In this lesson, I demonstrate two approaches to creating a series of dates in Excel:

  1. Use Excel’s AutoFill Options to drag your mouse to fill in the series. Be sure to use the “AutoFill Options” button when you release your mouse.
  2. Use an Excel Formula to increment the series of dates (by day, week, month, year, or even weekday.) This approach gives you the most flexibility if you will use a different starting date on copies of your worksheet.

I devote several lessons to Excel date formulas and date formatting on my DVD, “The 50 Best Tips for Excel 2007.” Click here to add it to your shopping cart.
