    For this formula, the value in Sheet1!E4 is a date (MM/DD/YY). It pulls it as a number here. Anyway to format this as a date.
    Thanks

    =CONCATENATE("Flash Report for the Week Ended", " ",Sheet1!E4, " ","(000's)")

    Try:

    ="Flash Report for the Week Ended "&TEXT(Sheet1!E4, "mm/dd/yy")

    Not sure I understand, but is it:

    ="Flash Report for the Week Ended "&TEXT(Sheet1!E4, "mm/dd/yy")&"(000's)"
