Formula / cell format help

Dear All, I receive the excel files with date & time stamp for each entry in column B. I have to calculate difference between previous cell and next cell in column B (say B3-B2 so on so forth). It is giving me value error. I have tried to change the format if column B to custom formats but no luck with the error.

can you please help !

You will have to create a helper column with =SUBSTITUTE(B2,".","/")+0 and pull down
Format as required for dates and time
Your data is text looking like dates not real dates and time
