Hi ,

I’m using Ms Excel 2003 and in my excel sheet there is a column in which
dates are entered as DD/MM/YYYY (e.g. 24/03/2010 as a text) format and I
wanted to convert it into MM/DD/YYYY (e.g. 03/24/2010).

Can excel programming is required to convert such date or is there any excel
function.

Please suggest.

Hi Nitesh,

Because you say the dates are entered as text you can use Text to Columns to
change it to a real date and it should format the cells as dates.

Select the column with the text dates.
Select menu item Data -> Text to columns -> Fixed width -> Next -> Next-> Date
At the Date dropdown select the date format that it is in currently ie. D/M/Y
Click finish.

The date will now be in your regional date format and the cell formatted as
Date. Now you can re-format the date using Number format to any format you
want.

You can use following code.

Just paste the following in any standard module.Call like any other
function from Function Wizard (It will be in Usedr Defined Category)

Function DateConvert(dte As String, Optional sep As String = ".")
Dim fstpos As Integer, sndpos As Integer
fstpos = InStr(1, dte, sep, vbTextCompare)
sndpos = InStr(1 + fstpos, dte, sep, vbTextCompare)
DateConvert = DateSerial(Mid(dte, sndpos + 1, 50) _
, Mid(dte, fstpos + 1, sndpos - fstpos - 1) _
, Left(dte, fstpos - 1))
End Function


You may use excel function Mid,Date,Right,Left but that will be a
large one.
