I have an excel sheet created by a 3rd party program.
One of the columns has dates in this format: "Jan 19, 2015 03:00:00 PM"
I would like these dates to appear in the following format: "19/01/2015"
I have selected the cell or cells, right clicked and selected "Format Cells…", chose "Date" in the category, then chose "14/03/2001" in the type, to no avail, the dates won't change.
I also tried "Custom" from the category and "dd/mm/yyyy" from the type, again, no changes at all.
The file is not protected, the sheet is editable.
Could someone explain what I could be doing wrong?
