How to automatically get zodiac signs (based on date ranges)

Hello friends!!

I have a list of entries of people and their personal data which also include their birthdates. I also have an empty cell in each of their lines which i would like to have their zodiac sign automatically filled (through a formula)

I would like to have a seperate sheet with date ranges for the zodiac signs

RE: Get zodiac sign based on date


Here's some solution. It is a bit [rather a quite :)] long formula but like that all is on one place and no need to have separate sheet with date ranges for the zodiac signs.

 {"Capricorn", "Aquarius", "Pisces", "Aries", "Taurus", "Gemini", "Cancer", "Leo", "Virgo", "Libra", "Scorpio", "Sagittarius", "Capricorn"},
 {"22.12.2011", "21.01.2012", "20.02.2012", "21.03.2012", "21.04.2012", "22.05.2012", "22.06.2012",
  "23.07.2012", "23.08.2012", "24.09.2012", "24.10.2012", "23.11.2012", "22.12.2012"})
 <= DATEVALUE(TEXT(A1, "") & "2012")) * (DATEVALUE(
 {"20.01.2012", "19.02.2012", "20.03.2012", "20.04.2012", "21.05.2012", "21.06.2012", "22.07.2012",
  "22.08.2012", "23.09.2012", "23.10.2012", "22.11.2012", "21.12.2012", "20.01.2013"})
 >= DATEVALUE(TEXT(A1, "") & "2012")), 0))

The years 2011, 2012, 2013 are not important. They may be, for example 1999, 2000, 2001 but must be used in the order in which I used them.


Best regards.

Thnx for the reply!! i get an error in the formula
could you upload a working excel file maybe?!

RE: Get error in the formula


What type of error you get?

Something like #N/A or #VALUE!?

Or you get error when you try to enter the formula?

Some guess:

 - Check your list separator. For example, mine is ";" but here I changed to "," because is most used in the other countries. Maybe yours is also ";" or another one and must replace all "," in the formula with it?

 - Check your date format. In some countries first is the Month then the Day and last the Year. Somewhere the Year is placed at front.

RE: Get zodiac signs in Google Docs


I'm very sorry but I have no any experience with Google Docs and don't know how to get any other date format except MM/DD/YYYY. In fact, the most formulas are not working as expected. However, I modified the formula and I tested it on Google Docs. It works, but only with MM/DD/YYYY date format. If you know some way to change it to your used date format just make necessary modifications into the formula or you need to change the date format of your data.

Here's the formula:

= ARRAYFORMULA(CHOOSE(MATCH(1, (DATEVALUE({"12/22/2011", "01/21/2012", "02/20/2012", "03/21/2012", "04/21/2012", "05/22/2012", "06/22/2012", "07/23/2012", "08/23/2012", "09/24/2012", "10/24/2012", "11/23/2012", "12/22/2012"}) <= DATEVALUE(TEXT(A1, "mm/dd/") & "2012")) * (DATEVALUE({"01/20/2012", "02/19/2012", "03/20/2012", "04/20/2012", "05/21/2012", "06/21/2012", "07/22/2012", "08/22/2012", "09/23/2012", "10/23/2012", "11/22/2012", "12/21/2012", "01/20/2013"}) >= DATEVALUE(TEXT(A1, "mm/dd/") & "2012")), 0), "Capricorn", "Aquarius", "Pisces", "Aries", "Taurus", "Gemini", "Cancer", "Leo", "Virgo", "Libra", "Scorpio", "Sagittarius", "Capricorn"))

I'm sorry that I cannot help you more with this issue.


Best regards.
