Supposing you have created a chart to track the daily sales based on a range of data in your workbook.
Unfortunately, there is no function to insert only a dynamic time stamp into Excel.
However, you can change the formatting of the cell to make the NOW function display only the time.
First, if any of your formulas are dependent on the current date or time, using a dynamic function helps you avoid having to insert updated information every time you open the file or run a new calculation.
Second, by placing a dynamic date or time next to another cell that contains a calculation, you can instantly know the last time the calculation was made.
In Excel 2007, 2010 or 2013, you can create a table to expand the data range, and the chart will update automatically. Select the data range and click Table under Insert tab, see screenshot: 2.
In the Create Table dialog box, if your data has headers, please check My table has headers option, then click OK. And the data range is formatted as a table, see screenshot: 4.
Excel has some built in shortcuts to make adding the current date and time a quick chore.
Suppose you have a new Excel worksheet open and you want to start adding some data that is tied to today’s date.
In the Select Data Source dialog box, from Legend Entries(Series) section, click Ruby and then click the Edit button, in the popped out Edit Series dialog, enter Tip.
