    hi Nive, welcome to the forum. try:
    =--LEFT(A1,FIND(":",A1)-1)+MID(A1,FIND(":",A1)+1,LEN(A1))

    then format cell as you desire

    With your text

    Format that cell the way you want:
    • Select the cells to be formatted
    • CTRL+1...to open the formatting window
    ...Category: custom
    ...Type: yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss
    ...Click: Ok

    Is that something you can work with?
