Ive got a simple question (i hope), i have a table with dates in them but they are in an english format for example 20190618 or 20210131 but i need them to be in the format 06-18-2019 and 01-31-21.
Is there a simple formula to change the format ?
i have multiple columns with this format so if there is an easy to do this besides making 10 new calculated colums it would be appreciated 🙂
