I need to pull a date into a text string, when I use

=a1&b1&c1

where b1 is a date, the serial value of the date is applied to the string. I need the text to be the displayed date (mm/dd/yyyy). Many thanks...

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
