Hi fellow Excel Addict,

I don't claim to be a great photographer but I was out for a walk with my wife on Sunday and the scenery was so beautiful I had to take these pictures (with my cell phone). Since many of my readers love to see pictures of Newfoundland, I thought I should share these with you.

Excel in Seconds with

Extract The Year, Month, or Day From A Date

If you you use dates in Excel, you've probably also needed to refer to just the year, month or day from a date in another cell. The solution is simple.

Lets say that cell A1 contains the date July 10, 2015 (entered as 10/7/2015 or 7/10/2015 depending on your date system). You want to extract the year (i.e. 2015) from that date and put it in cell C1.

    Simply enter the formula =YEAR(A1) in cell C1
    Same thing for month and day. Use =MONTH(A1) or =DAY(A1)
