    does not work at all , only USA formats works. Normally you put the day first as 31/10/2018 Canada , UK, etc. which is Oct 31 2018 but Kutools does not work , it just assumes the US format is the original and doesn't ask or try to figure out, there is not 31 months so it should know that is the day. I guess I will uninstall Kutools and look for something else. It seems to me there is better program that recognizes any date formats and converts.

    This works better: =DATE(YEAR(A2),MONTH(A2),DAY(A2))

      This was good. I follow your example and applied also =TIME(HOUR(A2),MINUTE(A2),SECOND(A2)) so to place in a separated cell the time!

    I think using ROUNDDOWN(A2,0) would be easier.

    An easier formula would be
    =text(A2,"mm/dd/yyyy")
    Sello - for your issue just swap the mm and dd around.

    hi there,

    I have tried this formula "=MONTH(A2) & "/" & DAY(A2) & "/" & YEAR(A2)" several times with no success. The date/time format that I seek to change is DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM format. So, I inserted the formula as =DAY(A2) & "/" & MONTH(A2) & "/" & YEAR(A2). Should I leave the space in between the '&' sign? The only result I achieve is #VALUE!

    Regards,
    Sello
