Is there any way to concatenate a date and text:
cell a1 is a date 03/11/02
cell a2 is text 96% - Good
cell a3 is a comma ,

i want to concatenate all three:
03/11/02, 96% - Good
but the date comes out as a number 35755 or similar.

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

Hi,

Try this:-

=TEXT(A1,"mm/dd/yy")&A2&A3

If you're using a different date format then change as necessary.

Dan just to be pedantic I think it should be:

=text(a1,"dd/mm/yy") & A3 & " " & A2

I see you're trying to resolve the comma problem!
