Convert Text to Date Format

If you import content from another source, such as a CSV file or web page, it's common that Excel will not recognize dates. Instead, Excel will sometimes treat them as plain text. This tool works like the Change All Date Formats tool, except that it will read in the date strings and replace each cell's content with a date value in your specified format.
