Mid and Value formula

    First, i think the field you have the date time in ("Meeting type AGM/SGM", ) needs to be text. The date field seems to remove any time


    Also, what format do you want the date in in the new field?

    I think that if you make ([Meeting type AGM/SGM] a text field

    and you have a new date field, the following formula in the new date field should work


    The corrections i made over your original formula is that i swapped the month and date fields in the formula. You also had an extra, unballanced ) at the end of your formula which i removed


    =DATE(VALUE(MID([Meeting type AGM/SGM]3, 7, 4)), VALUE(MID([Meeting type AGM/SGM]3, 4, 2)), VALUE(MID([Meeting type AGM/SGM]3, 1, 2)))
