Frequently asked questions

What is Excel Date Picker and what do I need it for?

Does the week start on Monday or Sunday in the Date Picker calendar?

The utility takes settings from the Windows calendar on your computer. If your week there starts on Sunday, it will start with Sunday on the Date Picket pane as well. The same is true about a week starting on Monday.

Can I choose any date in the past or in the future?

Almost. Due to the Excel's limitations, you won't be able to choose a date before the year 1900 and after 9999.

What about the date format?

By default, the utility uses the dd/mm/yyyy format. However, if you select a cell and set your format before picking the date, the utility will use the format you've chosen.

Can I subtract years or days from the date I choose?

Sure! For this use Date Calculator. Select a cell that contains a date value you want to use for calculations. Run Date Picker and click the calculator icon in the upper-right corner of the Date Picker pane. Enter the number of years, months, weeks, or days you want to subtract, and press Enter. The result date will be automatically inserted into the initially selected cell.

How to add weeks or months to the current date?

Easily. Select any empty cell and start Date Calculator. Enter the number of weeks, months, days, or years you want to add to the current day, and press Enter. The result date will appear in the initially selected cell.
