Format column and fill with date.


I have column D with data in general format which are Invoice Dates. Example:


I am trying to get column C to show the dates as 10/09/2013

Here is the code I am using. I am getting type mismatch error.

Sub Invoice_Date()

Selection.NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yyyy;@"
Selection.Formula "=DATEVALUE(MID(D2,5,2)&" / "&RIGHT(D2,2)&" / "&LEFT(D2,4))"

Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("C2").End(xlDown).Select

End Sub

This function will loop through column D and set column C to the datevalue of the YYYYMMDD in D

Sub ConvertYYYYMMDDToDate()
    Dim i As Long, c As Range
    Columns("C").NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yyyy;@"

    For i = 1 To Range("D1048576").End(xlUp).Row
        If IsNumeric(Range("D" & i).Value) And Len(Range("D" & i).Value) = 8 Then
            Set c = Range("D" & i)
            Range("C" & i).Value = DateValue(Left(c.Value, 4) & "/" & Mid(c.Value, 5, 2) & "/" & Right(c.Value, 2))
        End If
    Next i
End Sub
