Date column not changing its format when imported from a text file

  • I would bring the text tile into Power Query which is called Get and Transform Data in later versions of Excel. Once in the PQ Editor, you can change the date from text to Date format.

  • You say : "While turning text to columns I change the type to date DMY" - that is not the way it works .... you are supposed to choose the date type of the data coming in, and NOT what you are wanting to change it to. (if I'm understanding your comment correctly, of course).

    Cheers, Glenn.
