    Assuming those are text strings:

    =INT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"PM"," PM"),"AM"," AM")*1)

    Thanks Dom, this will work for me but how can we convert to read as a "Date format (dd/mm/yyyy)" using same formula rather than changing a format cell to date?

    Hi,

    How about

    =TEXT(INT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"PM"," PM"),"AM"," AM")*1),"dd/mm/yyyy")

    In terms of the formula you could I think (based on your sample) you could also use:

    =0+LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-7)

    Format cell as dd/mm/yyyy or if you want the above as literal string rather than a date

    =TEXT(LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-7),"dd/mm/yyyy")
