    Your dates are not real dates - they are text.

    Thank you Ali. Noted you suggestion. But up to E37 it is working. If the dates are text, is there any solution to correct it?

    Yes, by ensuring that proper date strings are entered into those cells.

    Thank you for your reply. Is it possible to change text into strings in the above attached file? Would you please explain how to perform this task?

    There is no easy way - the Text to Columns feature does not work properly when time is included.

    In G2 drag copied down to G99:

    =DATE(MID(C2,7,4),LEFT(C2,2),MID(C2,4,2))+TIME(MID(C2,12,2),RIGHT(C2,2),0)

    Copy the range G2 to G99.

    Select cell C2 - right-click - paste values.

    Now delete the temporary data in column G.
