I am exporting to excel from my MS Project 2016, using the Project Export Wizard. To make things easier I selected the field to map based on a ad hoc table (baseline, forecasts and actuals basically). When I open the excel file once the info is exported, cells in Excel are all Text and the dates have different formats: – Forecast and baseline start and finish: 15 November 2017 8:00 – Actuals start and finish: Wed 15/11/17
Excel do not recognize those as dates… What is the criteria for the Project Export Wizard to chose that format? Can I change it?
For the benefit of your understanding I would say that dates in the MS Project table I generated the exportation from is dd/mm/yyy
