In Excel when I enter a year like 1921, the computer automatically changes it to a date, 4/4/1905 due to one of the date/time formulas. How can I stop that conversion and preserve my 1921?

So, say 1921 is in B2, please try =TEXT(B2,"yyyy") in the cell where you want the date to be.

Advice if it helps or post the formula that you are using if it does not work.

I need some help with my excel query, I have an excel
I have an excel workbook with several sheets. One sheet (ClientTbl) is set up as the parent table and all other sheets (each on separate tab) are set up as the child tables, i.e AddressTbl, EmployTbl, etc... The reason for this is that due to the nature of our contact with clients, it is likely that their address will change from one contact to the next or they will change employer from one contact to the next. Within the child tables, the date and time the information is entered is automatically record. I need to create a query to create one CURRENT record for each client and would like to take advantage of the pre-record date/time filed to ONLY report the record from each table that is the most recent. How would I go about doing this? I have put sample tables below ClientTblID LastName FirstName 1 Doe JohnAddressTblID Address Date 1 15 N.
