I have tried submitting the Excel spreadsheet for the DXCC Diamond Challenge, but all of the entries are rejected because of an "invalid date format". The date/time displayed in the error message is what is in the spreadsheet except the month and day are reversed.

Any suggestions? Anyone else encounter this?

The spreadsheet is protected so the user can not change the date/time format when submitting. Not much else I could do.

Finally gave up and just hand jammed the data into the on-line submission form. Should have done that in the first place since it requires a lot less information (no time, band or mode) than the spreadsheet.

Good job on typing them into the form! The form is a lot easier to use online and allows for applications to be filed electronically also.

The online form was modified to accept the spreadsheet uploads and simply ignore the date and time (the online form will show the date as the day that the sheet was uploaded). There were many different formats used for time and date. So, give the spreadsheet upload a try if you haven't already. Once you have uploaded, go back and look at the QSO Entry/View data and you should see the info there.
