TRYING TO TRIM MONTH FROM JULIAN DATE CODE

TRYING TO TRIM MONTH FROM JULIAN DATE CODE

TRYING TO TRIM MONTH FROM JULIAN DATE CODE

(OP)
Hello,

Whenever i try to trim or copy or save as text a  date ie:Dec-02 it gives me part of the number format.
ie 01/12/02 and getting mid(4,2) etc gives me something like  91.
i want to be able to copy out the 12 and the 02.
Any help greatfully accepted.

thanks
Jose

RE: TRYING TO TRIM MONTH FROM JULIAN DATE CODE

Excel dates are really numbers that have special formatting applied to them.  So the date 12-31-02 is really the number 37,621.  In order to get the day, month, or year date numeric values, you have to use the DAY(), MONTH(), and YEAR() functions in Excel.

Hope this helps!
