Current date and TimeActual date and time
Inserts the current date and time into a single cells.
Suppose you just want to type in the current date and time and create a time history of your activity at the same time. Or, you want to have the current date and time displayed each time you recalculate a formula. Either set a date or time that does not vary, or have it up-dated.
However, a statistic value is one that does not vary when the spreadsheet is re-calculated or opened. From a spreadsheet, choose the cells in which you want to paste the current date or time. In order to enter the date, enter the date (e.g. 2/2), and then click Home > Number Format > Quick Date or Long Date.
Enter the time, enter the time, and then click Home > Number Format > Time. Any date or time that is updated when the spreadsheet is re-calculated or the spreadsheet is opened is regarded as "dynamic" instead of static. For a spreadsheet, the most commonly used method to retrieve a date or time in a single mobile is to use a feature.
Use the TODAY and NOW features as shown in the following chart to add the current date or time so that it can be updated. See TODAY and NOW for more information on using these features. Remark: The results of the TODAY and NOW features only vary when the spreadsheet is computed or when a macro containing the feature is executed.
Time and date are taken from the system time of the computer.
