    I'm having problems concatenating a text formatted cell with a date formatted cell. Each time that I try to concatenate the 2n cells the date reverts back to the code e.g. 37305 rather than retaining the date format 19/01/02. Does anyone have any ideas to get around this.

    Thanks

    Matt

    Matt,

    Try:

    =A1&" "&TEXT(B1,"dd/mm/yy")

    where A1 houses a text value and B1 a date.

    If your text is in A1 and your date in A2 :-

    =A1 & TEXT(A2,"d/mm/yy")

    Adding a space to the concatenation is not necessary.
    Instead, the formula could entered as :-
    =A1&TEXT(B1," dd/mm/yy")
