Hi,

I'm trying to convert dates to text format using this:
Code:
=MONTH(A1)&"/"&DAY(A1)&"/"&YEAR(A1)
This makes the date in this format 5/1/2005 for 1st May 2005.

How can I make it into this format please: 05/01/2005

Cheers Glenn
 

Excel Facts

Select a hidden cell
Somehide hide payroll data in column G? Press F5. Type G1. Enter. Look in formula bar while you arrow down through G.
Thanks anthonya but they are in text format.

In A1 for example I have 05/01/2005 mm/dd/yyyy in date format (yes - I can format this as any date format).

I want to cut and paste that date into a txt document.

To do this I converted it to text format in another cell using the above formula but it comes out as m/d/yyyy.

Cheers Glenn
