I am trying to link dates in two different sharepoint excel worksheets

New Contributor



I am trying to link two seperate worksheets and use the dates from them which is 7/28/2021 format. The problem is the dates are transfered over but they look like numbers ranging in the 40k. I am not sure where the formatting went but if someone could explain how to link two workbooks by date and retain the format that would be appreciated. I already know how to place it in a formula from one workbook to another. The format will cause my formula to go all wonky if it isn't in the correct date format.

Just apply date format to the cells in column H, most probably they have default General format.
