formatting stuff in Excel

Howard Traxler

Good morning all,

I have a file that I downloaded from my bank as a .CVS.  This is because they don't offer an excel format.  So I imported it into excel.  Now in the date column it will only show date by serial number.  I've gone into the formatting menu and changed it to date and chose a type of date display.  But it doesn't change.  It stays serial numbers.  Anybody know what I'm missing?  Thanks. Howard
