I have A2 populated with the name of the month (January) and A4 with a year (2005). In D2, I want to assemble a date like 1/01/2005. Thought this should be relatively simple but seeming to have problems with it.

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

James,

I think we are missing something. If month is in A2, year in A4, where is the day? You need all three to make this combo.

Was actually hard coding "1" for the day since I am looking for the 1st day of the month (A2) and then the first day of the next month (A2+1 in a sense).

Since A2 is January, I should have 1/1/05 and 2/1/05.

Try the following...

=DATEVALUE(A2&" 1, "&A4)

Hope this helps!
