Works: Find Command Doesn’t Find Some Dates in Spreadsheet

PSS ID Number: Q46497 Article last modified on 06-10-1996

1.00 1.10 2.00


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, versions 1.x and 2.0


In a Microsoft Works version 2.00 spreadsheet, the Find command might not correctly identify the appropriate cells containing a date if the spreadsheet was converted from Works 1.00 or 1.10.

This problem occurs because dates entered in earlier versions of Works are treated as text, not numbers.

A date must be completely retyped in Works 2.00 in order to take on the desired format.
