Recording a Data Entry Time in Excel

Recording a data entry time in Excel is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps.

First, open up a new Excel spreadsheet. Then, locate the cell where you want to record the data entry time. Next to this cell, create another cell where you will input the formula =NOW().

Once you have inputted the formula, hit Enter. This will populate the cell with the current date and time. You can then format this cell to show only the time by selecting the cell and going to Format > Number > Time.

And that's it! Now you have a cell that is automatically updated with the current time whenever you open up your spreadsheet.
