    Splitting Date & Time into two seperate columns

    Hi,

    I am looking for some help please.

    I am trying to use the Text To Columns function within my VBA code, however, when trying to split a date and time in the following format: 28/04/2008 13:59:10 it is displaying my time as 03:59:10 with PM in text in the next again cell.

    Is there anyway that I can have it so that it only displays my date in one cell and then the correct 24 hour time in the next cell?

    Many thanks
    McCrimmon

    Using text to columns
    Fixed width > Next
    Double click on the black line between Time & PM - This will remove the line & stop the entry being split into 3 columns.


    Remember unless the cell entry is text the underlying date/time is a number and the cells formatting is changed to display the data in the required format without changing the underlying value

    The date of 28/04/2008 13:59:10 has a numeric value of 39566.5827546296 where the decimal part of the number is the time and the whole number part is the date

    The column with the date may still display an 0:00 time
