I created a macro to do this but is there a way of converting a date to year month day without code?

8/1/2007 to 20070801

Hi could you not use customer format yyyyddmm for that?

Problem would be is that it'd still be stored as a number

How about the other way round?

From 20070801 to 8/1/2007.

Assuming that's not a formatted date....

If you want to convert in the same cell you can use text to columns. At step 3 choose date format and YMD.

With a formula in another cell

=TEXT(A1,"0000-00-00")+0

format as date
