right click the cell-> click on format cell-> select date (from options on left under category) and in there you can choose any type of format that you want for date.

Let me know if this helps.

if you want to do the entire column then click on the  letter corresponding to the column in question so that the whole column is highlighted. Then right click and choose format cells and follow the steps above.

yea that is very strange. Usually if you select the date format it applies right away. That looks like a custom format. Go back to that format view and select "custom" check to see if you have anything that looks like that format and delete it. Then try and go back and apply that date format again.

when you click on the date format that you want nothing happens?

You will have to use string manipulation. The data is all in text format and not in date format.
