    I want not only it to show only MM-DD but I don't want the year at all as I am sorting this data. I can format as MM-DD but only want that. excel is automatically inserting the current date year( even though it is not shown). which is confusing my sort. I will be adding new dates ongoing and do not want the year I added it in the sort.
