Excel Macro code to Add Header and Footer Date

How to Add Header and Footer Date in excel sheet through VBA Macro Code

To use VBA macro code in an Excel spreadsheet, you need to do the following:

  1. Open the Excel spreadsheet where you want to use the macro code.

  2. Press “Alt + F11” to open the VBA developer window.

  3. In the VBA developer window, click the “Insert” menu and select “Module” to create a new module.

  4. Paste the VBA macro code into the module window.

  5. To run the macro, click the “Run” button in the VBA developer window or press “F5” on your keyboard.

Alternatively, you can also create a button or a shortcut key to run the macro. To create a button, go to the “Developer” tab in the main Excel window and click the “Insert” button. Then select a button control and draw it on the worksheet. Right-click the button and select “Assign Macro” to assign the macro code to the button. To create a shortcut key, go to the “Macros” tab in the VBA developer window, select the macro from the list, and click the “Options” button. Then, enter a shortcut key in the “Shortcut key” field.

Note: If you are running the macro for the first time, you may need to enable macros in Excel by going to the “File” tab and selecting “Options.” Under the “Trust Center” settings, click the “Trust Center Settings” button and go to the “Macro Settings” tab. Select “Enable all macros” and click “OK.”

Copy Below VBA Macro Code for Add Header and Footer Date
Sub DateInHeader()
With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
.LeftHeader = ""
.CenterHeader = "&D"
.RightHeader = ""
.LeftFooter = ""
.CenterFooter = ""
.RightFooter = ""
End With
End Sub

This macro adds a date to the header when you run it. It simply uses the tag “&D” for adding the date. You can also change it to the footer or change the side by replacing the “” with the date tag. And if you want to add a specific date instead of the current date you can replace the “&D” tag with that date from the code.
