How to change from MM/DD/YYYY to DD/MM/YYYY?
Thanks
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
This is my most adaptable decoder for a MM/DD/YYYY date:

=DATE(RIGHT(A2,4),LEFT(A2,SEARCH("/",A2) -1),MID(A2,SEARCH("/",A2)+1,LEN(A2)-(5+SEARCH("/",A2))))

Use following Formula
=IFERROR(IF(DAY(B2)>12,DAY(B2)&”/”&MONTH(B2)&”/”&YEAR(B2),VALUE(DATE(YEAR(B2),DAY(B2),MONTH(B2)))),DATE(VALUE(RIGHT(B2,4)), VALUE(MID(B2,4,2)), VALUE(LEFT(B2,2))))

Hello, Karthik, convert MM/DD to DD/MM/YYYY, only select the dates cells, then press Ctrl + 1 to enable the Format Cells dialog, then under Number tab, then choose Custom in the Category list, and go to right section, type dd/mm/yyyy into the Type textbox, click OK. Now the dates are converted to the date format as you need.

Hi, Joy. Just use Text to Columns to split them by / , for example, 1/5/2021 8:26:00 AM will be split into 1 5 and 2021 8:26:00 AM, then use the formula to combine them.

i think it can be easily done by changing regional settings of the windows, suppose in Pakistan we use dd/MM/yyyy and by changing these settings excel sheet will automatically change accordingly.
