I entered one value down with CTRL ; and was still able to format it.
When I right-click and Format the cell (for this cell), even when I choose a different date format, it will not change in the Sample above the Types for the format... The dates are by default, right justified as the one above it.
The following C# code retrieves a reference to the Cells property and displays the number of rows and columns in the active work sheet: You can retrieve multiple Excel cells by either specifying the row and columns number for the Range object or you can use the Range objects’ get_Range method.

But if I manually enter the date, I can change the format, as long as it isn't entered in the format in the example. i tried a formula the attempt to convert it to text and one that attempts to convert it to date formats, nothing happens.
