I guess it is with the format "dd mmmm yyyy hh:mm:ss"

You can either 

Change the format of the cell (CTRL+1)


Use a formula to meet your needs (Considering A2 contains the date)

=TEXT(A2,"mm/dd/yyyy")  Resulting in "09/06/2021"

=TEXT(A2,"h:mm:ss") 12:00:00


Remember that using formula you are converting the values to a text value.

So I would suggest you just make reference to the Date cell and apply the desired format.


Let's say you have such a date in A2.

To extract the date, enter the formula =INT(1*A2) in a cell and format that cell as a date.

To extract the time, enter the formula =MOD(1*A2,1) in a cell and format that cell as a time.

Alternatively, use =DATEVALUE(A2) and =TIMEVALUE(A2)

clt + 1 does not do anything used it before

CTRL+1 is a shortcut to access the Format Options.
There you can select or create your custom format for the cell you will apply to.

As I said, if you just want the date format only make reference to the cell where there is a full date format =A2 and apply your desired format using the format Option accessed by CTRL+1
