Hi M.Hanzla,

Well, when I enter a date like 15-7-15 and format that date as dd.mm.yyyy, find and replace doesn't work for me at least. Replacing "." with "/" or "-" with "/" both result 15.07.15 as the cell is formatted.

Did you do something different or do our Excel versions (I'm using 2013) behave differently?

Best regards,
Trowa

ok dear now i completely understand what you were trying to say
That is "custom Format" you are talking about.In case of custom format i used a trick that always work
1-copy the whole column of date
2-open notpad and press ctrl+v
3-press ctrl+a(to select All)
4-in edit you will find replace.replace "." with whatever u want and click replace all(ctrl+H shortcut)
5-copy all dates to paste in excel again and done :)
