    Post Converting text " 12/31/2019 to date format

    Hello,
    I am having trouble calculating the number of days between two dates
    I have entered in my date in the following format: 12/31/2019
    It's showing up as text and won't let me convert it to a date format thus I keep getting an error when doing the calculation .
    Is there a way I can convert this date to a date format with out having to use the =todate() function?
    Thanks

    You can use the Data | Text-to-Columns feature, and specify MDY on the final panel.

    Hope this helps.
