VALUE Function – Excel

Posted in Did you Know? on February 23, 2007 by

When you bring data into Excel from other places, some of the data may not be in the proper format. For example, dates might be left-aligned, signifying they came across as text.
Quick Fix: Use the VALUE function in an extra column to the right of these text dates, to convert the text into a number value. This number, when formatted to date format, shows the proper date. It will be right-aligned in the cell, and will sort chronologically, rather than alphabetically.
