    From a list of dates that changes in length, make list with all middle dates

    I have a list of dates that changes in length. I want to make a list with those dates, excluding the first and last. How can I do this?

    For example, from this list:
    3/1/2011
    4/1/2011
    5/1/2011
    6/1/2011
    7/1/2011
    8/1/2011
    9/1/2011
    10/1/2011
    11/1/2011
    12/1/2011
    1/1/2012
    2/1/2012
    3/1/2012

    I want to create this list:
    4/1/2011
    5/1/2011
    6/1/2011
    7/1/2011
    8/1/2011
    9/1/2011
    10/1/2011
    11/1/2011
    12/1/2011
    1/1/2012
    2/1/2012

    THANK YOU!

    Assuming first data list starts in cell A1 and formula list starts in B1

    Paste in B1 then copy down as needed.

    =IF(ROW(B1)-ROW($B$1)+2<COUNTA(A:A),INDEX(A:A,MATCH(SMALL(A:A,ROW(B1)-ROW($B$1)+2),A:A,0)),"")

    Or, assuming your original list in in A1:A13, enter this formula in your first cell (anywhere is fine) and copy down until you start to get blanks for the results:

    =IF(ROWS($1:1)>COUNT($A$1:$A$13)-2,"",INDEX($A$1:$A$13,ROWS($1:2)))
