Suppose, you don’t have anything computer, cell phone or any kind of calendar, are you not able to tell the day of the week of any date?

Let me tell you how you can do it!

Suppose your date is 12/25/2018.

1.

Take 17 that is 17 years of 21st century.

2.

Take 4 meaning that from year 1 to year 17, there  are 4 leap years.

3.

Take 3 from the months which have 31 days, 2 from the months which have 30 days and take 1 from the month which have 29 days.

4.

From that calculations, there are 6 months having 31 days meaning 18 days, 4 months having 30 days meaning 8 days and take 25 days from December.

5.

Now final calculation is:

17+4+18+8+25=72 divided by 7=10 remaining 2.

6.

Now you can count them as, Sunday 0 Monday 1 and Tuesday 2.

So December 25 2018 will be Tuesday!

Actually, if you want to know what day a particular date is, just type the date in a cell, e.g. in A1 type 12/24/2018, then press Control+1 to format the cell and select the date format, then from the available options select the one that has the weekday included (for me it’s the second from the top).

If, for example, I enter 12/25/2018 into A1 and then apply that format, it will read “Tuesday, December 25, 2018” so I now know that Christmas day this year is on a Tuesday.

Now, if I want to know how many days it is until Christmas from today (May 11), I type 5/11/2018 into cell A2, then in cell A3 I subtract the larger date (Christmas) from the smaller date (today), so I put =A1-A2 and the result in this case will be 228 which is the correct number of days from May 11 until December 25.

 

the day

Hi,

Following is a formula to calculate the day of the week  from an input date.

In the first cell, in this case A4, type in 3/12/1988 and the cell with the formula will display the week day. 

 

=TEXT(A4,"dddd")

 

Depending on where you live and the date format, you may need to change the formula a little.  This formula  works on 3 December 1988 and not December 12 format.  But then it may not need to be altered at all.  You’ll just need to experiment.

Subject: Where can I learn about formulas for Excel?

 

Hi.

 

I’m looking for a source to learn about the different formulas for Excel.  I purchased the book that CathyAnne Murtha wrote, but it doesn’t contain all the formulas that I’m looking for.  Essentially, I’d like a kind of Excel for Dummies where all the formulas are listed and how they work.  As an example, I’d like to know how to have Excel tell me the day of the week a date will be.  Also, I’d like to know how many days are between dates.  I looked through the book I got from Ms. Murtha, but it doesn’t list all the formulas.

 

Thanks for any help.  Dates aren’t the only thing I’m looking for.  I know Excel is a very powerful program, and I’d like to learn how to use it to its fullest potential.

 

Thanks for any info.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Hi, Sieghard. I just thought of something. I only have one power plan listed

thought of is this: Maybe Fast Startup isn't listed under all the power
plans which may be available under each machine. If you have more than one
plan listed, you may be required to switch the plan you are using before
Fast Startup is listed as an option.

Turning off fast startup may have an effect on Jaws speaking at the login
screen, but it should not affect Jaws starting once you put in your password
or PIN and the desktop loads. In what way did turning this off make things
worse, this is something I have never heard, it just means Windows doesn't
save certain things when it shuts down and in fact loading Windows from
scratch usually is always a better option. In any case, this also presumes
that this is on a laptop since I have never seen the fast startup ooption on
any of my desktops, only on my laptop.

Richard,

I had the same problem. Jaws was not speaking at boot time after updating
windows.
The solution was to turn off fast boot. Tis was turned on by the windows
update.
Go to Control Panel
Power Options
Choose what the power buttons do
and (Untick) fast boot.

Hello all,

There used to be a list of excel functions listed by category in the Excel help.  Since I do not have the latest version of Excel, I can not say how accessible this still is to access.
You can also find out a lot by searching Google for the type of Excel function you are looking for.  I just always include the words excel and function in my search criteria.

Here is a web page from Office Support listing all excel functions by category:


Hope this helps!

Hi,

Following is a formula to calculate the day of the week  from an input date.

In the first cell, in this case A4, type in 3/12/1988 and the cell with the formula will display the week day. 

 

=TEXT(A4,"dddd")

 

Depending on where you live and the date format, you may need to change the formula a little.  This formula  works on 3 December 1988 and not December 12 format.  But then it may not need to be altered at all.  You’ll just need to experiment.

Hi All,

 

Asking for a friend:

I have a rather strange problem with Word 2016 but I had the same problem with 2010.  I'm running Win 10 1803 with J2018 latest, but get the same result using NVDA as well.  When I am in a document and am arrowing down it will skip pages. It will go from page one to page three, then page five, etc. It does not do this when doing a say all or if I am arrowing right or reading word by word with the insert + right arrow. This only happens on my desktop and not the laptop so I am pretty sure it is some odd setting that I have accidently made. But I have gone over and over the options and can not figure out what setting is causing this.
Before installing 2016, I uninstalled 2010 thinking the problem would not persist but I was wrong. Does anyone have an idea what setting is causing this & how I can fix it?  Thank you all very much.

Hi Bill: Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it did not have the desired result.

 

I am using an HP laptop, and I bett the fast boot option has something to do with this.

 

I have a hot key for loading jaws and it works pretty fast. I think I will just plug along for awhile. See what develops.

Turning off fast startup may have an effect on Jaws speaking at the login screen, but it should not affect Jaws starting once you put in your password or PIN and the desktop loads. In what way did turning this off make things worse, this is something I have never heard, it just means Windows doesn't save certain things when it shuts down and in fact loading Windows from scratch usually is always a better option. In any case, this also presumes that this is on a laptop since I have never seen the fast startup ooption on any of my desktops, only on my laptop.
