I have a polygon feature class that has acquired attributes from a joined excel spreadsheet.  The date field has to have a field type of text because there could be many different dates for the one record.  I used the field calculator to transfer the dates to a new text field (from a date type field) and when I double-click to edit the attribute in the new field more characters display (See Screenshots).  I tried copying and pasting the complete string but it still only pastes what is displayed when not selected.  Has anyone experienced something like this before?
