    How do I Fill a column with dates (for 3 years of daily data)

    I am trying to make a graph and have daily data for a period of 3 years and
    then weekly for an additional year and a half. I want to be able to tell it
    start on "THIS DAY" and end on "THAT DAY" and it puts the dates in
    automatically. Right now I am trying to type them by hand and with over
    1000 days that's goint to take me forever.

    One way, put start date in A2, assume you put 01/01/01 (US date format thus
    Jan 1 2001)

    =TEXT(DATE(YEAR(A2)+3,MONTH(A2),DAY(A2))-A2,"General")

    will give you number of days (1095)

    In the name box type A2:A1096
    press enter, do edit>fill>series, select day and 1 as step value and press
    enter
    last cell will show 12/31/03

    or just grab the fill handle of A2 and copy down
