When entering a date in a formatted cell, I find it easy to use the dash (top right of number keypad) as in 3-16 or 3-16-10 will both give the same: 03/16/10 when leaving the cell. I find this fast and easy and not as cumbersome as entering the slash. For more details, or for more office questions, please use the Office forum (as above).
