Hi Guys,

I need a date format with some text

my formula is

="( Registration from "&Date_P1_From&", Start Of Season )"

"Date_P1_From being a defined name with a date

The formula shows 40040 instead of the date?

Any help appreciated

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Is there a way to add "th" and "st" or "nd" into the date

ie "20th August"

Thanks

This seems to work

="( Registration from "&TEXT(Date_P1_From,"d")&MID("stndrdthstndrdthst",MATCH(DAY(Date_P1_From),{1,2,3,4,21,22,23,24,31},1)*2-1,2)&" "&TEXT(Date_P1_From,"mmmm yyyy")&", Start Of Season )"
