Date as day of the year

I have a column of values in the form of

10/26/2015  1:16:41 PM

In the column next to it, I would like to have just the date.... ie: 10/26/2015. I don't want the  time associated with it at all.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As with your other question, get the whole date number only, but this time use the INT function...


...and again format as desired.
Ryan ChongBusiness Systems Analyst , ex-Senior Application EngineerCommented:
there are other alternatives:

1. use formula:

Open in new window

in which A1 = 10/26/2015  1:16:41 PM , and again format as desired

2. use formula:

Open in new window

in which A1 = 10/26/2015  1:16:41 PM, but this will convert the Date value as Text value.

see which approache is best suit your need.
