DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

04/18/04: Dates in Excel

Tech Support Pits:
From Bernd=== Dear Webby, In Excel , I am able to enter Dates from 1900 Jan 01 onwards and have them accepted as date format for calculation of age. I cannot however input any dates prior to that which I find very frustrating. Is there something I should be doing or another routine so I can calculate years from dates before and after the year 1900. Thanks for any assistance Bernd Dear Bernd To go back before 01/01/1900 you have to use Quattro from Corell Office. It goes back to 01/01/1600 If you want to calculate back further than that, you'll have to scrounge up a copy of Quattro for DOS. Quattro will read all of your Excel files and allow you to save them in Excel format, or Quattro format, or even as HTML web pages. You can get last year's version of Corell Office at e-bay for around $5 - $10. Have FUN Dear Webby
