Excel Problems

Doing this will completely mess your excel files. (At least for 2003). All my date formats are changed and when I enter new dates it doesn't recongnize the formatting anymore.

You could change your date & time format directly in your cell

Select the cell, format, date, time

Select in the list the output that you want or build yours in the format task bar
