Text to Date.


Well-known Member
Hello friends, hope all is well!

the cell A1 has this: 9/18/2018 12:00:00 AM

the Cell is not recognized as a date. Can you please help provide me with a formula that will convert this to date i.e. 18-Sep-2018 ?

Thank you very much in advance!

Here a UDF which can help you
Somewhere put =MyDate(A1)
Option Explicit

Function MyDate(ByVal WkRg As Range) As Date
Dim T
    T = Trim(Left(WkRg, 10))
    T = Split(T, "/")
    MyDate = DateSerial(T(2), T(0), T(1))
End Function
