Part II: Calculating Elapsed Days with Microsoft Excel (10 points) “Dates in Excel live a dual existence. Although the program stores them as the integer number of days since January 1, 1900, Excel’s number formatting forces it to display the values in a format such as MM/DD/YYYY. This dual existence leads to a confusion – Excel will often perform the correct calculation but display the answer incorrectly. This article should clear up some of the date mysteries and introduce a few new functions.” Open a blank Excel workbook. Enter the value 39493 into cell A1. Press the Enter button.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
