Dates on Works spreadsheet

I have entered a column of dates showing just the day and month e.g. 15/10 (15 October). I wish to include the year (last two numbers) - is there any way this can be done without having to enter each date separately ? I tried using 'Format - Numbers - Date' entering the correct year in the first cell and then dragging the mouse over the required cells, but then I get '03' as the year regardless of what I initially entered.

Could tell us the software your using? I'm using Xp Office, and that does it how you want it done.

My system is Windows 98 - using Works Suite 2000 for setting up the spreadsheet.

In your example did you just enter 15/10 or did you enter 15/10/03 and format DD/MM.

If you did not put the year in you may have to do it by hand in all cells

I have just run a test in Excel I entered the dates as: 15/10/03 and 20/10/03 selected the cells and chose a date format and the result was 15 October 2003 and 20 October 2003. You must select the cells before formatting.
