I have a series of dates in a column, currently recognized as text. Thus sorting doesn't work correctly.
When highlighting the column and changing the format to
Date, Excel still recognizes it as text (you can notice it: it stays left-aligned).
The only solution I've found is to go on each cell individually and hit F2 and then ENTER.
If there are many cells, going to the top and hitting F2, ENTER, F2, ENTER.... is not really an option.
What faster solution is there?
Doing a multiplication by 1 seems to work but is there a nicer way?
