I was trying to write a formula to find the number of days between two dates in Excel 2003. I decided to test it with the dates of the beginning and ending of the Revolutionary War. I got a #Value error.
Experimentation showed me that Excel; does not recognize any date before 1900 as a date.
Is Microsoft so business-oriented that it ignores scientific or historical uses of dates?
How do you use dates before 1900?
