I saved data from sql 2008 directly to excel 2010, i need to convert the julian dates to calendar dates, but the formulas I have found are giving me the incorrect date.

=DATE(YEAR("01/01/"&TEXT(1900+INT(A2/1000),0)),MONTH("01/01/"&TEXT(1900+INT(A2/1000),0)),DAY("01/01/"&TEXT(1900+INT(A2/1000),0)))+MOD(A2,1000)-1

this should work, I am posting a file with the results attached

I have attached the file, am I missing a setting in excel 2010?

I think it's based on 1 AD which would mean the formula is:

=A1-693594

See attached.

Strictly speaking, "Julian Date" refers to the count of days since January 1, 4713 BC

People often assign different meanings to the term, however.

To answer your question properly, we would need to know what zero signifies in your date scheme (it would be enough to take one of the values, and say what you would translate it to in the Gregorian calendar).

Of course, if Kevin's guess is right, then your question is answered :)
