From numeric to date

I have an Excel sheet with a columndate. In Excel the date 27.02.2014 is the same as 41697. When I import to R the column gives me the number 41697, how can i convert this number back to the date?

sapply(data1, class);

Strange to me because of the odd origin date it implies

[1] "2014-02-27"
