That function will not provide you with the result you desire.  For instance, using the Test sub, it returns


Day_4 Month_11, Year_2013


I'd suggest you look at as it will give you the format you are seeking.




I'm not sure since the translation isn't the best, so maybe you're looking for something like that.



Sub OnlyText()
Dim lngRow As Long
For lngRow = 1 To Cells(Rows.Count, 4).End(xlUp).Row
If Not IsEmpty(Cells(lngRow, 4)) Then
If IsDate(Cells(lngRow, 4)) Then
Cells(lngRow, 4) = Format(Cells(lngRow, 4), "DDDD.MMMM.YYYY")
End If
End If
End Sub
