Now I can change it using the below formula:

=IF(ISTEXT(A1),REPLACE(MID(A1,4,3)&A1,7,3,"")+0,DATE(YEAR(A1),DAY(A1),MONTH(A1)))


the result

09/12/2013 15:00      12/09/2013 00:00

however, the time doesn't  change

Hi,

I think your formula is okay, but you need to check the formatting on the cell containing the formula.

Format the cell containing the formula using this format:

dd/mm/yy hh:mm

and it should work - at least it does for me!

Alan.

Thanks I found did the solution:

I have calculate the formula on the main cell, then calculate the time of the main one using
=Time(hour(main cell), minute(main cell),second(main cell)) and then add the date with time

A: main cell     B:formula(a)   c: time(A)    D: B+C
