Try this formula:
Code:
=DATE(RIGHT(A1,2),MID(A1,4,2),MID(A1,6,2))

THS100219 into 10/2/1919
OK, to make it "2019", try this variation instead:
Code:
=DATE("20" & RIGHT(A1,2),MID(A1,4,2),MID(A1,6,2))
THS080719 should be 08/07/19 but it return as #VALUE instead.
I cannot recreate that error, it works fine for me.
Make sure that your formula is referencing the correct cell.
If it still doesn't work, check for extra characters in your entry.
So, if your entry is in cell A2, this formula:
=LEN(A2)
should return 9. If it returns a bigger number, you have extra characters in that cell.

Thank you very much. Second code works perfectly.
