    How about importing them, find-and-replace (Ctrl-H) all the spaces, dashes, parens and what have you until there is nothing left but numbers, then (since these appear to be US format dates), Format, Special, Phone?

    If you want to restrict the cells where this will happen, select the cells where you want to remove spaces. Then:

    1- Select Replace from the Edit menu.

    2- In the "Find what:" box enter a single space.

    3- Do not enter anything in the "Replace with:" box. If there is anything there, delete it.

    4- Click on the "Replace All" button.

    All spaces should be removed.
