Hi Rodel,

Thanks for the tip, it spare us from lengthy process just to arrive on a proper date format.

Please share your wisdom on how to update a programme using excell, and how important are the templates. I tried it once but I messed up the WBS.

Export files are in text format. If you need to change the format highlight the column that need to change then press ctrl+h (Replace Command) then enter ‘ on Find what text box and leave replace with blank then click replace all. Then press ctrl+1 (Format Cell command) then format it by date format you wanted.
