1. Can we assume that you are talking about dates stored in your Excel file?
2. Can you provide some examples of
a. dates as they are displayed in Excel
b. the same dates as they are displayed in Word
c. how you want your dates to be displayed.

If the dates are coming across as dates, e.g. 01/02/2010, but you want
different formatting, e.g. 01 Feb 2010, then use alt-F9 to reveal your
date's field code - something like this

{ MERGEFIELD mydate }

and insert a date format field, like this

{ MERGEFIELD mydate \@"DD MMM YYYY" }
