I'm trying to format numbers in an excel column to a date format.

I have a column of numbers starting in cell A1 and ending in A29163.  The all have 8 numbers in the format 19000103   The first 4 numbers are the year, the next 2 are the month and the last 2 are the day.  I would like the cell to show the date format as 1900-Jan-03     Can anyone please help me automate this with a vba script to do it in one shot? Thanks

It is always much faster to use Excel's built-in formulae rather than use VBA. So teylyn's solution is the best way to go.
