I had this question after viewing Finding missing dates..
Also I would like to change the date format to YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.
I tried changing it by going to text to columns and also by formatting cells but it didn't work. :(

For Date and time Formatting you can use this function :
=TEXT(<your date and time column>, "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss")

Because your Date and TIme stamp is not in a recognised format, use the following formula to convert it:

=DATE(MID(A2,7,4),MID(A2,4,2),LEFT(A2,2))+TIMEVALUE(RIGHT(A2,5))

This assumes that your text dates represent "dd.mm.yyyy" format.

Then just use a Custom format of "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss" (without the quotes).

Thanks
