"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.

Presuming you're using a newer version of Excel, select the field that holds the date and click the small arrow in the Number group on the Home tab. (see image)

There, you'll need to select the Date option, if it's not already chosen, and you can then choose the format of the date. This is one of them.

Right-Click the cell Format Cells Custom
and Enter


and OK

or as a formula


please post a sample workbook

CorinTack - do not convert to a real date..
Put this formula in a new column and fill down.
=TEXT(MID(A1,FIND(", ",A1)+2,99),"mm/dd/yyyy")
