I need to pull a series of dates into days, months and years: ie. 25/01/03 into 25, 01, 2003 in 3 columns. I can get 25/01/03 to display as "January" by choosing a custom format (mmmm), but the underlying value is unchanged. If I "paste value" I get 37646. Is there a robust way of turning that 37646 into an actual value of 1 that really changes it, not just the way that it is displayed?
p.s. I need to do it this way because I am merging the single-date data with some data that displays dates in 3 columns.
