As I said before, getting the date into a spreadsheet as a date was the
problem.  Once there, I am able to format the data as required.

CSV was just an example. I get the data in just about any format (raw
(unformatted), comma delimited, tab delimited, xls, xlsx, doc, docx, txt,
pdf, etc. Even with the xls I sometimes get dates and numbers in text

If all the sources would be willing to enter their data into a database,
then a database would be useful as the data would then be of a fixed layout
with a fixed structure.
