    Default mail merge change the format of the date

    Hi I am not sure if this excel or word issue. I have a column in excel which has dates formatted as below. When I mail merge to word, I loss the format and the date will convert to something like that 30/09/20, instead of the format below. Why is that. Thank you so much.

    Excel is just sending the data over to Word, not the formatting.
    You need to format it on the Word side.

    TIPS FOR FINDING EXCEL SOLUTIONS
    1. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access
    2. Use the Search functionality on this board
    3. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.
