Time Without Limits

No Delimiters

Excel is most happy when you enter dates and times with the correct separators.

1/1/2004 is a good date. So is 1-1-2004.

If you just entered 112004 in a cell formatted as a date you'll get:

Wednesday, August 27, 2206

the 112,004th day since January 1, 1900.

Chip Pearson has come up with VBA code, using the Worksheet_Change event procedure, that will allow you to enter dates without dashes or slashes.
