# Convert A Date In Specific Format

Oct 19, 2009

I'm trying to convert a date in the following format: 19970121 to 1/21/1997 and am having trouble getting rid of the leading zero in the final version. I also need it to pick up the 2 digits in months that have them from 9 (Sept) through 12 (Dec), though, for use in a VLOOKUP function. Can this be done at all?

Here is the code I've been using so far that doesn't entirely work for what I need it to do:

=CONCATENATE(LEFT(RIGHT(B2,4),2),"/",RIGHT(B2,2),"/",LEFT(B2,4))

where B2 refers to the column the original date form (19970121) is in. I'm still stuck with the leading zero in this code.

## Convert The Digit In Specific Format

May 6, 2009

I work in the flooring industry and the format we use for cuts of carpet/vinyl is 40-3 (for 40.25 feet), etc. So we are trying to create an excel spreadsheet that will add up these cuts. Right now it's kind of a mess because we have decimals in a column we will be hiding and are converting that to our industry format.

The formula I am having trouble with is as follows:
=MID(A18,1,FIND(".",A18)-1)&"-"&MID(A18,FIND(".",A18),3)*12

The problem is that whenever the totals end in zero, the formula won't convert 40.00 to 40-0. It gives me an error every time. If the total is 40.25 it will convert it to 40-3 just fine.

## Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

Oct 6, 2008

Example......

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

I want to create this text "(WG 01-01-2006)" but then with the actual date of that day of course, which can be inserted in de active cell.

Whatever I do, copy, pastespecial, reed text with RIGHT, change format on an temporary cell etc. Excel keeps returning the number in Excel date format counting from 01-01-1900. Nice for calculating but I want the date text!

## Convert Non-US Dates To US Date Format

Dec 9, 2006

I am parsing a string which contains (European) dates:

"10/08/2005,11/08/2005,12/08/2005,13/08/2005,14/08/2005,".

When broken into individual cells, dates before the 13th of the month are recognised as "American" dates and display as "08/10/2005", "08/11/2005", 08/12/2005" etc. with automatic date format. Dates from the 13th onwards are left in general format as "13/08/2005", "14/08/2005".

I have written a macro that converts each date individually to its correct Excel serial number, but I can't help thinking that there must be a simpler way, and that I cannot be the first to have asked this!

## Convert Text Entries To Valid Date Format

Jan 23, 2010

I receive data from an external source and it displays what appears to be dates in column B.
In column G I apply a formula to display month/year info.

It turns out that some of the data in column B is valid date data, but other data imports as plain text and therefore I can't get the month/year info that I require.
I have attached just a small example.

I get this data monthly and it usually covers thousands of rows and therefore impractical to change manually.
