Hi

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to swop a backward date around?

The date come from a as400 file and looks like

1021107

this would be 07/11/02.

or would i have to do a lookup table.

many thanks

if cell A1 contains your value 1021107, this would also work:

=DATE("20"&MID(A1,2,2),MID(A1,6,2),MID(A1,4,2))

Use Text To Columns, using "Delimited", and in step 3, change the column type to "Date" using YMD or YDM, because I don't know which one are you using in there !
