Excel change Date to mmddyy as Text only

By vwrman ·
How do I convert Date formatted cells received from others (such as 1-5-05 or 2/18/2005,etc) to a Text format of 010505 or 021805? When I try, I just get what appears to be the right format (010505 or 021805) but it is not Text. I must have Text.

Have you used the Text command?

Based upon the example in your question above with a cell formatted to 01/01/2005, the command =TEXT(A1,"ddmmyy") would return 010105.
