Subject:custom date format in PowerPoint? From:SIANNON -at- VISUS -dot- JNJ -dot- com To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 4 Dec 2001 9:55:14
Found a somewhat ugly way:
Insert>>Object>>Microsoft Excel Worksheet.
Crop it to show only one cell (sized to accommodate the date).
Click in the cell and Format it as desired.
(go to format>>cell>>number tab>>Date,
pick one with the elements you need,
then switch to Custom and re-order them as desired)
Verify you're still in the target cell.
Insert>>Function and select TODAY and hit OK.
(or enter =TODAY() in the cell)
Center it if desired (sounds preferable, from your desc).
Now exit the Excel editor, and move the block to wherever you need it on
Sleep is for the weak,...just not *this* week.
