Converting a YYYYMMDD Number to Date Format in Microsoft Excel

Posted in Uncategorized by rmt on May 17, 2012

To tell Excel to interpret the number that’s in cell A1 as a date in YYYYMMDD format, enter this formula in a separate cell:

=DATE(LEFT(A1,4),MID(A1,5,2),RIGHT(A1,2))

Then do Format Cells->Date on the cell into which you just entered the formula.
