Does Excel think that there is always 29 days in Feb ? I'm doing a spreadsheet that has leadtime dates on it and formulas calculate dates every seven days. It always includes the 29th Feb and throws all my formulas out !

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)

Welcome to the board!

Are you sure you have 2005 as your year? Excel will think there's a Feb 29th only in leap years...

Are you using 2005 or 2004? Because in 2004 there are 29 days. It works ok for me. What is the formula you are using?
