How do I fix this? I "imported" a table from a PDF (big mistake). In the pdf, the dates were formatted as AA-BB, where AA was the month and BB was the year. Excel interpreted that as AA is the month and BB is the day, and gave them all 2013 as the year. So now the date reads as 11-Jan instead of Jan 2011. I no longer have access to the original dataset because I only just noticed the mistake. I am using Excel 2010 on Windows.

In Excel 2007, is there a way to highlight all cells within a certain range (in my case, five adjacent columns) that contain dates in the future? [more inside]

In Excel I have 2 columns with dates in them. D1:D20 Start Date G1:G20 End Date. I want to highlight the cell in the range G1:G20 if the date is more than 14 days form the date in D1:D20. Obvious answer is conditional formatting, but I can't seem to create a formula with relative cell references. [more inside]

I have an excel file with a column of dates, in the xx/xx/xxxx format. I would like to strip out the month and day information, so I could just have a column that shows the year, but excel's method of representing dates as serial numbers has foiled every attempt. Any ideas? [more inside]
