I'd suggest you sort out however you parse the data into columns in the first place. :)

It looks like you're pulling the first eight characters, whatever they are, into the first column. You probably need to split it out up to the first space instead. I looked through the code a bit and didn't see where you were getting the data though.

Try Formula below:
=IF(D27="No",IF(ISERROR(DAY(C27)),IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("t ",C27)),DATEVALUE(CONCATENATE(RIGHT(B27,LEN(B27)-SEARCH("t ",B27)-4),C27)),DATEVALUE(MID(C27,SEARCH("t ",C27)+2,LEN(C27)-SEARCH("t ",C27)))),C27),"")
