# How to Split Date and Time in Excel

Video duration: 00:03:16
If you download data into Excel, one column might have the Date and Time combined in each cell.

In this short video you will see how to quickly split that value into separate date and time columns.

The first method uses a simple formula, and the second method is done without a formula — just a bit of typing.

How do I extract date-time to time without changing the embedded date? When I extracted the time from date-time, and re-extract the date from the extracted time, the extracted date becomes the default date which is january 0, 1900

Current Problem:
12/21/15 05:00 AM > 05:00 AM > 01/00/1900
12/21/15 05:00 AM > 01/00/1900 > 12:00 AM

Desired Output:
12/21/15 05:00 AM > 05:00 AM > 12/21/15 or
12/21/15 05:00 AM > 12/21/15 > 05:00 AM
