How to convert a date that is presently separated out into 4 columns so that it is consolidated into column C?
I am working with an Excel 2003 file. Attached are sample records from the Excel file.
For the rows after the header, I would like to convert the values in:

columns C, D,E,F into column C.

Thus, the first record would be changed from:

Col A        Col B        Col C         Col D       Col E        Col F

5454        UNA          Jan              10             2013          9:26AM

Revised value for first record:

Col A        Col B        Col C

5454         UNA         Jan 10 2013 9:26AM

If you insert a column into C then paste the formula into C2 (assuming you have headers in your file) =CONCATENATE(D2," ",E2," ",F2," ",G2) not sure if this is what you are after.
