    I am trying to merge data from an Excel S/sheet to a Word doc and this data includes dates which I need in the format of '28 September 2005'. I've changed the format in both Excel & Word and for some reason it still merges the dates as '9/28/05'. I've even gone to the extent of putting a character in front of the date so Excel doesn't recognise it as a date but surely I don't have to do this everytime? I have pages & pages of Word docs to go through and edit this extra character out of.

    What am I doing wrong??? :confused:

    I do beleive I just figured it out myself! LOL :p

    Simple add one space before the first number of the date in the Excel spreadsheet. I thought this would also add the space to the Word doc but it doesn't! Problem solved. :D
