I want to join a list of date together quickly. the join function requires the text function for every single date.
Is there an easier way to join a list of date together?

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

You have left some important information out of your post... where is the list of dates? how do you want them joined? where do you want the output to go to?

Just guessing here... I'll assume your dates are in cells A1:A10, that your want the output to be m/d/yyyy forma, that you want them joined using a comma/space as the delimiter and that you want the output to be shown in a MessageBox... here is a macro that will do this
Code:
Sub DateLister
  MsgBox Join(Application.Transpose(Evaluate("IF({1},TEXT(A1:A10,""m/d/yyyy""))")), ", ")
End Sub

Is there away to do it without using VBA?
I am not sure... my version of Excel is 2010... some of the later versions have a function called TEXTJOIN which I think would work the same way I used Join (except you should not have to TRANSPOSE the array result), but I am not sure and have no way to test it. If your version of Excel has this function, then I think the answer is "yes" and if you can figure it out yourself, great; otherwise you will have to wait for someone to come along who has that function in their version of Excel in order to show you the way.

Welcome to the MrExcel board!

Rick pointed out that you have omitted some information from your post and you still have not provided that information.

You also mentioned the "join function" which is a function in vba, not worksheet functions, so it is not surprising that a vba suggestion was made. ;)

So, still guessing at some of the things Rick asked, see if this formula helps. It is an array formula so should be entered without the {} but confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter. If confirmed correctly, Excel will insert the {}.
