separating date and time

Greetings

I have some formatted data that looks like this:
A
1 04/01/2013 12:00:00 PM
2 04/03/2013 09:00:00 AM
3 04/03/2013 01:45:00 PM

I would like to have the resulting data to look like this

A B
1 04/01/2013 12:00
2 04/03/2013 09:00
3 04/03/2013 13:45

Date in separate column with no time stamp remaining
Time in a separate column with no date stamp remaining
Time is 24 hr format.

I can format A1 04/01/2013 12:00:00 PM with mm/dd/yyyy
the cell will show 04/01/2013 but 12:00:00 still remains in the cell.
I want all time references removed. B1 only time.

Any help appreciated. Tx

Tx Claus, here are my results, testing one cell:

A3 = 04/03/2013 01:45:00 PM
A3 is selected, TextToColumns
Delimited is selected
Selected data shows 4/3/2013 01:45:00 PM
Next, , All Delimiters are not selected (blank)
data preview = 4/3/2013 01:45:00 PM
Next, general format, destination B1
B1 = 4/3/2013 13:45 in same cell
The fx(function) window shows 4/3/2013 1:45:00 PM

Cannot get them separated. Tx for additional help

first use custon format for the cells:
dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm
Then click in column header to select the column => TextToColumns =>
Delimited => Delimiter is Blank => Format for the first colum is Date
d/m/y, format for the second cell is "General" => Destination is A3 (if
your values begin in A3) => Finish
If you now have in column A a date with time 00:00 format the column for
date.
Or try this macro:

Sub SeparateData()
Dim LRow As Long

LRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
With Range("A1:A" & LRow)
.NumberFormat = "mm\/dd\/yyyy hh:mm"
.TextToColumns Destination:=Range("A1"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=True, _
Space:=True, Other:=False, FieldInfo _
:=Array(Array(1, 3), Array(2, 1)), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
.NumberFormat = "mm\/dd\/yyyy"
End With
End Sub

if you can't get my suggestions to work, you can also try it with
formula
For the date in B1:
=INT(A1)
For the time in C1:
=MOD(A1,1)
Then set the format of column A and B as you want it.
Copy column A and B and paste special => Paste values.
Then you can delete column A

Tx again Claus.... I have a solution that works thanks to you!
The data comes to me in the mm/dd/yyyy format (April 3, 2013) so I was able
to change that around.
I notice however that the macro format matches my data! :)
My work project is to identify peak work load by day of week and hour of
each day using the time stamps in question.
