Hi everyone

I have a sheet that data is imported into and the word "DATE" is placed randomly in cells in column "M".

I am looking for a macro that can find each word "DATE" in column "M" and offset one cell to the left and change the cell format to NumberFormat = "m/d/yyyy".

Thanks in advance.

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

            End If
        Next
