Hi, I have a date in column A and a date in column B. I want to concatenate the 2 dates to form a text string eg.

Column A Column B Column C
26 May 2010 28 May 2010 26 May 2010 to 28 May 2010

I use the following formula in column C to create the text string

=A2&" to "&B2

The problem is I get the following result in column C

40324 to 40324

and I need help to get the following result

26 May 2010 to 28 May 2010

Thanks
