Hi,
please try
Function fExtractDate(strText As String) As Date
Res = ""
For Each Item In Split(strText, " ")
    If IsDate(Item) Then
        Res = DateValue(Item)
        Exit For
    End If
Next
fExtractDate = Res
End Function

Open in new window

I think it should be like this....
Function fExtractDate(strText As String) As Date
Res = ""
For Each Item In Split(strText, " ")
    If IsDate(Replace(Item, ".", "/")) Then
        Res = Replace(Item, ".", "/")
        Exit For
    End If
Next
fExtractDate = Res
End Function

Open in new window

you can easily get this done by built-in formula . see attached file.

=DATE(MID(A2,SEARCH(".",A2)+4,4),MID(A2,SEARCH(".",A2)+1,2),MID(A2,SEARCH(".",A2)-2,2))
