    How do you combine a date cell with a time cell to create a single date and time cell?

    example:
    A B C
    1 03/04/02 | 08:15 | 03/04/02 08:15 |

    Simply adding the 2 together should do the trick!

    Try formatting your result cell as

    mm/dd/yy hh:mm

    Also, make sure cell C1 =A1 + B1 rather than A1 & B1.

    That's how I'm entering it. Here is the exact cell contents:
    2/19/02 7:25

    the results are 4/24/04 7:25

    One thing I didn't tell you was that the data was imported from an AS/400. When I enter the dates manually, adding the two fields works.
