I have a series of data. Here you have a small sample (this data is placed into a column A):


Each cell must be formatted into a proper date & time format. I'm achieving this using the following formula in column B (the following example corresponds to cell No A1):

=REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(A1;1;1;"2013");11;1;" ");5;1;"-");8;1;"-");14;1;":");17;1;":")

As the result I get this in cell B1:

2013-08-01 17:27:13

My question: Is there a way to simplify the formula? However it works, it doesn't seem to be very elegant right now.
