How to pull part of a cell to another cell?
I have a list of birthdates, formatted as 01/01/2001. What formula can I use to pull just 01/01 to another cell?

Hi @Linda Hwang,
One way of achieving this is using the LEFT function, which returns the leftmost characters from a text string. More info here: https://help.smartsheet.com/function/left
If you want to return DD/MM in a new column, the formula would look like:
=LEFT([name of your birthdates column]@row, 5)
Cheers,
Ric
