so i have this cell with

Code:
=today()

the format is 04-02-11
i want to separate the numbers to three different cells, so that for example A3 will have 04, B4 will have 02, C4 will end up with 11

is that possible?

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

I think since 04-02-11 is actually just a mask for 40635 you may have to use

A3 =MONTH(A1)
B4 =DAY(A1)
C4 =YEAR(A1)

and then format to mm - dd - yy respectively
