Hi All,

I have a coworker who would like to enter dates in excel without using a slash. So for example, she wants to enter in 011804 and have it display 01/18/04, or 01/18/2004...when we do this though, with the cell formatted to date, the date is displayed as 04/25/1932 heheh.

Is this possible? I'm using Excel 2003, SP1, and she has Excel 2000 SP3. Thanks in advance for your help!!!
