Hello,
I tried to save it as "Microsoft Excel Macro-Enabled Worksheet" sadly it didn't work.
Column 10 just shows the data raw still and if I use the tap below and try to write TEXT(O11,"ddmmyyyy") then it just say error https://gyazo.com/86725f9998a3b51456424c5cfe013f97

@B.Frederik, just FYI, you can alert another user to your post by "addressing" it with @username like I did here. Otherwise nobody will be aware of your posting unless they stumble across it.
I also had problems within the worksheet you posted. B10 simply refused to properly accept any version of the formula. There is nothing technically wrong with the formula you're using. I got it to work in row 11 and was able to copy and paste that into row 10 to get row 10 to work.
 
Thanks, didn’t know :)
 
But that was in the online copy, opened in LO Calc, with macros disabled. It's possible that your worksheet is corrupted. As a test, open a new worksheet. Copy and paste just the formula to the same cell in the new one. It should be treated as a formula and produce a blank cell since all of the referenced cells are empty there.
Then start copy and pasting the referenced cells and the formula should build the output based on as much as is present in the new worksheet. If that works, it means the original is corrupted (it happens).
 
Opened a brank new excel docuemnt. Still getting the same error gyazo.com/dac5fadc90fcfc895516ac632ceccc2a
brank=blank
Could you possibly try and send the one you modified that work? It’s really strange. Almost feels like getting pranked.
 
This is just strange. What happens if you use just the cell reference instead of the text function?
I looked at how to post the file, but I don't have an account at the site.

Try posting in C6 just =text(b6,"ddmmyyyy")
 
You should be able to go to mega.nz/f and just "Try without account" and just drag and drop
 
You need to right click on the file. And then click "Manage link" and then Link with key and then link that
 
It says links are only for registered users. If we can't get this figured out, maybe I'll register. :-) Something else to try. In D6, type = then click on the function wizard. Look for the text function and use the wizard to create what you tried in C6.
 
wizard?

Next to the formula edit box, there are three icons, X, checkmark, and fx. If you start a formula with =, then click the fx, it opens a function wizard. You select the function you want and it opens a little entry window for each parameter. There is also guidance and help available. If we have Excel build the function, we should see what's wrong.
 
:o! That might have worked. Going to try it in the main sheet now
 
Here's an image of the working cells on the copy:
 
Yeah it works now. Great, i'm still very astranged what really happened.
Thank you so much for you help. I greatly appreciate it! As I'm still pretty new to this side. Is there a way to "solve" a post?
 
Can you get the original formula to work that way? Was there anything obviously different in what the wizard produced? BTW, if you have a long formula, you can edit it, postition the cursor in the function name and click the fx to open the function wizard.
The way to indicate that the problem is solved is to click the checkmark next to the answer to "accept" it.

Yes I got the original formula working now with using the wizard :D. I can't see anything different at all, it says the exact same as if I would have written it manually. I guess the wizard is just wiser somehow.
And cool thanks for the tip :)
 
Another one to add to my "strange problems" collection. :-) Glad we got this working for you.
 
Haha, I'm in your debt. If you think I could in any way help you out in any way just say so :)
I would be happy to donate a pizza to your paypal if you want :)
