BAAAM tool export date format


Level 1

Hi, am trying to read the created and update date fields on the BAAAM export from AAM but the data which is available can't be transformed into any dates which Excel recognises, anyone know how to convert it? Thx

Hi @richlodge5 


Here is the BAAAM Date formula: =((A2/1000)/86400)+(DATEVALUE("1-1-1970")-DATEVALUE("1-1-1900"))

Make sure you replace the 'A2' to reference the the date cell you are trying to change. Also make sure that the raw (reference) date column (in this example 'A2') is formatted as general

The new date column will need to be formatted as 'Custom' and then you should make it: m:dd:yyyy AM/PM.  


It can get a bit wonky sometimes so if anyone else has a better way please share.

I use the formula below (and then format that cell as a date)




(where A2 contains the UNIX timestamp you are trying to convert)
