We are using SQL Navigator version 184.108.40.20612. When I export the data with date fields into Excel it comes as TEXT format. i.e., if we use the filter on the column in excel, we cannot see the date fields organized as Year > Month > Days in the drop down. I have to use the excel formula DATEVALUE() and convert the text into datevalue number and format it as DD-MMM-YYYY and then apply the filter. Could you please suggest if there is any way to get the date fields into excel without having to do so many fixes in excel. I noticed this issue only in recent versions… may be from 7.1. I was using 6.4 before and did not have this issue.
