Formula opposite Concatenate

Hello,

I have a text extract that needs to be converted to regular date format. For example: 02APR2017:00:00:00.000 needs to be 4/2/17

thanks!

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.

Just use format date and select English USA as short date, that is it

With the text string 02APR2017:00:00:00.000 in C4 use:

=DATEVALUE(LEFT(C4,9))

Then format as Short Date
