Newbie question: how to replace non-date with date when Find box won't allow a non-date entry?

Hi!  I'm importing approximately 100 "Line Lists" of people with COVID19 in congregate care facilities (Nursing Homes, et.) per day.  Each list has a lot of other data to be cleaned as well - demographic and symptoms.  I am getting overwhelmed by the number of tables and the number of typos in each.  Doing some of the cleanup systematically in Power Query would be a huge help.

Thank you very much for your help!

You are going to need to provide sample data and explain what is is you have, and what you want the expected result to be.
