You can use the following formula...
=text(a1,"mmddyyyy")
Assuming you enter date in A1 in mm/dd/yyyy format.

I need to do the exact opposite and I'm stumped.

I have a date string "20091128"  that i need converted into "MM/DD/YY"

In excel I can split the cell into three parts, but can't put it back together in the format i want.

any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!
