Converting Excel Date Serial Number to Date using Javascript

0 votes

I have the following javascript code that convert date (string) to the Date Serial Number used in Microsoft Excel:

function JSDateToExcelDate(inDate) {

    var returnDateTime = 25569.0 + ((inDate.getTime() - (inDate.getTimezoneOffset() * 60 * 1000)) / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
    return returnDateTime.toString().substr(0,5);

}

So, how do I do the reverse? (Meaning that a Javascript code that convert the Date Serial Number used in Microsoft Excel to a date string?

Please do try this :

function ExcelDateToJSDate(serial) {
   var utc_days  = Math.floor(serial - 25569);
   var utc_value = utc_days * 86400;                                        
   var date_info = new Date(utc_value * 1000);

   var fractional_day = serial - Math.floor(serial) + 0.0000001;

   var total_seconds = Math.floor(86400 * fractional_day);

   var seconds = total_seconds % 60;

   total_seconds -= seconds;

   var hours = Math.floor(total_seconds / (60 * 60));
   var minutes = Math.floor(total_seconds / 60) % 60;

   return new Date(date_info.getFullYear(), date_info.getMonth(), date_info.getDate(), hours, minutes, seconds);
}

Custom made for you :)
