Ryan ChongBusiness Systems Analyst , ex-Senior Application EngineerCommented:
may I know which column contains "ero" dates and how you want them to be formatted to "US" dates?

A data value always contain constant value, just need to know what's the format to be used to display it accordingly.
rjefAuthor Commented:
column 'A' and 'B' are US all the rest are Ero
rjefAuthor Commented:
i also need to be able to calculate between them IE. time between column 'A' and column 'E' in hours
Ryan ChongBusiness Systems Analyst , ex-Senior Application EngineerCommented:
Assuming "ero dates" are in format of "d/m/yyyy" in your spreadsheet and actually those values could be saved wrongly when importing to Excel.

For example, when you format cell C2: 8/9/2015  4:21:56 PM to "d mmm yyyy h:mm", you will get "9 Aug 2015 16:21" instead of "8 Sep 2015 16:21". Which means your date could be wrong in your source or have been modified in the spreadsheet. I assume the actual date is 8 Sep 2015, instead of 9 Aug 2015.

Date formatting
So, to get the above value to "8 Sep 2015", we need to convert the dates accordingly, using formula such as:

to get the difference in hours for Column A and E, we probably need use formula:


Open in new window

and using format: [hh]:mm

format hours
