Well your analysis is correct and the "date" is in text format. What is odd however is that the format changed from 12 Feb 2014 which DATEVALUE can recognise and I could have used to 12-Feb-2014 which it cannot.

For what it's worth, DATEVALUE() can certainly cope with that format (of text value) for me. But it won't cope with a genuine date formatted in that way, of course. It sounds as if at least some of your dates may really have been dates after all. There's no guarantee that all values in a column are of the same type or format, of course.
