Problem with excel data appearance.

I am viewing an excel file shared by one of my teammates. All date columns having values like 08/06/2013  08:00:00 appear as ############ in the cells. Any suggestions what could be the problem?

As Ramin implied, you get the #### because the column is too narrow to show the whole value.

Additional information:

Sometime, Excel shows ##### because the cell has a negative date or time value:
If your information is date or time:
1. Verify dates and times are positive values when you’re using the 1900 date system.
2. Use a formula to subtract dates or times correctly to avoid negative date or time value results.
3. Change negative formula results that are formatted as dates or times to a different number format.
