Excel 2007
Cell A contains the following data
HALCHAK JR, JOHN 10/31/2010 10/28/2010 Williams 9

I need a formula for cell E and F
Cell E needs to extract the first date from Cell A (in this example it would be 10/31/2010)

Cell F needs to extract the second date from Cell A (in this example it would be 10/28/2010)

Thanks

Excel Facts

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.
It works if the date is always mm/dd/yyyy
but if the date is m/dd/yyyy of mm/d/yyyy

How can I force the date to be mm/dd/yyyy

Excel 2007 does not seem to have a custom date
