Hello,
 With previous versions of excel I would be able to right click on column, format, date options and select ISO as the date format.

I cannot figure out how to do this with office 2013 and need my dates to be in this format.

I am running WIndows 7 Pro, office 2013.

Choose custom and enter "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss" as the type.

still failing.  I am trying to replicate how excel 2003 used to allow you to change the date locale to International (ISO)

Not unless you record a macro changing the column.
Then you could just assign HotKeys and format the whole column with 3keys.

Thanks for leading me in right direction, I will open new question for part two of this. Using yyyy-mm-dd works. Also selecting English (Belize) will give you option for correct format as well.
