I use a program that can export data into Excel. For the most part, it works fine . . . except it doesn't correctly handle dates. For some reason, when it pastes a date into excel it includes 8 or 9 (depending if the month is 1 or 2 digits) spaces in front of the date which makes calculations with these dates impossible unless you go into each cell and delete the spaces (or do Find / Replace).
Is there a way I can create a non-VBA formula that will reference any one of these cells and some \how identify what the date is & then that cell can be the date I can calc on? I.e., A1 is the date with the spaces in front, B2 is the cell that will reference A1 and produce, as the contents of B2, the date in A1. I can then use B2 in calculations.
Note: the month formats possible are: M/DD/YY (Jan. - Sept.) & MM/DD/YY (Oct. - Dec.). There are no other variations.
Thanks in advance.
