Thank you all for your assistance. You have pointed to features of which I
was not aware, but found easily. The work-around solution will not be
necessary. As for not deleting the single quote that is not there, that
work-around works, but is very labor intensive. I will be doing some
experimenting to see the best way to implement your suggestions to import
number and date and time data, but the preliminary test suggests that it
works on dates in the mm/dd/yyyy mixed-endian format. Now to test it on the
dd mmm yyyy big-endian and yyyy-mm-dd small endian formats which are the
three main formats. Of all the formats, I have been using the small endian
format since the sixties as it sorts properly even in text format. I was
surprised when I found out that the International Standards Organization
chose that format and called it ISO8601. Again, thank you all. 2012-09-01
