Excel imported my dates as day-month instead of year-month. How to fix?

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.

Need to find and completely remove all hyperlinks/URL's from a Word doc

I have a 100-page Word document full of miscellaneous content from different websites. Unfortunately, after each section taken from a website, there's basically a citation for where the content was taken from that contains the URL for the website. I need to find a way to find all these hyperlinks and delete them completely from my document. They're all from different websites, so really, the only commonality is the "http://" part.

How to get rid of the line above the endnotes in microsoft word?

In ms word, in endnotes, there's this little two-inch line in the upper-left corner to symbolize that you're in "footnote land," even on the second page of the endnotes and after. It's the same line that's at the bottom of the page before a footnote. Is there any way to remove this line? I have a mac, but I think the same issue comes up with PCs. I need to get rid of this line to fulfill the formatting requirements to post my dissertation, so any help would be much appreciated!

Making two columns work in MS Word shouldn't be this hard.

In Microsoft Word 2003, I'm trying to format a document so that there is both one-columned and two-columned text on the same page. Whenever I apply two columns to the text I want to be in two columns, it always shunts all that text to a new page, as if I had inserted a page break. What do to? [more inside]
