Excel Tip - Extracting a Date of Birth from an ID Number

 

Have you ever had to extract a Date of Birth from an ID Number?

 

A client of ours once accidentally deleted all their respective Client Birthdays. They were incredibly relieved when they were introduced to the following Formula:

 

=DATE(LEFT(A2,2),MID(A2,3,2),MID(A2,5,2))

 

Simply copy and paste the above formula into cell A2 of an Excel Spreadsheet, pop your ID Number into cell A1 and it will extract the D.O.B.
