try:
CDate(Replace(Left("2013-07-25T18:43:01.000Z", InStr(1, "2013-07-25T18:43:01.000Z", ".") - 1), "T", " "))

not pretty but works :-)

First convert to date/time:

strTime = "2013-07-25T18:43:01.000Z"

datTime = CDate(Left(Replace(strTime, "T", " "), 19))

Then expand to convert to local time:

datTime = DateAdd("h", -4, CDate(Left(Replace(strTime, "T", " "), 19)))

Thank you too COACHMAN99, your original returned 6:43 versus 2:43. Which is the time diff missing.
