    Formula or macro to remove characters between date

    Hi. I would like to have a formula or macro to remove characters or spaces beyween dates.
    So 14.07.2014 will be 140714. Year always only 2digits.
    No matter what the input is. Could be these. 14/07/14 .14-07-2014, 14.07.14. What ever always. Result with no spaces or charaters and year always only 2digits.
    Please have a look.
    Sincerely
    Abjac

    In A1 Cell

    14.07.2014


    For getting the Text Output

    =TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","-"),"DDMMYY")



    For getting the Real Value, But preceding zero will get removed

    =VALUE(TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","-"),"DDMMYY"))

    Hi Sixthsense. Thanks for your reply. I get a formula error. Maybe its because I use excel 2003. Could you have a look at it.

    Thanks in advance

    It seems that your regional Date/Time Short Date setting set to MM-DD-YYYY, just change it to MM-DD-YYYY
