2-digit years in imported text files
Posted by Brenda Hernandez on January 24, 2002 7:49 AM
I have changed my regional options settings to interpet all years as falling between 2000 and 2099. I can enter a 2-digit date such as 6/1/36 directly into a cell and Excel will correctly interpet it as 6/1/2036. However, when I import a text file with a column of 2-digit dates, that same entry of 6/1/36 will be interpeted as 6/1/1936. I need to sort on date once the file is imported so I can't leave the date column as text.
