Hi All. Ist tru that the way the date are shown can be changed by the date format tool, provided the date was entered the correct way. I think we are missing each other. I think the way the date was entered (17.08.07) and converted to (17/08/07) was good. At first it was in text so one wouldnt have known whether it will be taken as yymmdd, ddmmyy, mmddyy etc. well it end up like as 17(yy), 08(mm), 07(dd) instead as 17(dd), 08(mm) and 07(yy). My Q now is is there a way (formula) to swap these orders around...?
