Van Lant, Robin

Even more specifically, once you open the cell formatting dialog, tab once to Category and arrow down to “Date”.  Excel defaults the cell format to General, which is at the top of the list.  Once “Date” is selected, tab once and you’ll have a list of the way you want the date to show up.  You can select choices where it just shows month, or month and day or month, day, year.  Arrow down and hit enter on the one you want.

Have you made sure that the cell(s) are formatted as “date?”  You’ll see that formatting option in the same place where you format the cells(s) number style.

Good afternoon all; perhaps someone can help me.  this is from one of my clients.


I wonder if you had a suggestion about a problem I am having with excel. I have gone through all of the help info with no luck at all. I don’t know if you can help but here it is. Excel does not recognize date formats as numbers only as text. When I enter a dates in a date column I need it to be recognized as a date in order to sort them to put them in order. I have no luck in using the date value or value function getting an error that my formula is wrong. I have gone on the internet and have had no luck with and it isn’t a disability issue for Microsoft accessibility help. Is there something I am missing? Do you have any suggestions ?
