    I am trying to link a date value into a cell that also has text. When I do this, the date value converts a #. My formula looks like this: (where A1 is a date)
    ="as of :"&A1
    I've also tried using the text function to convert the # back to a date, like this:
    ="as of "&TEXT(A1,"date")
    But this returns "as of 31at2002".

    The only way I can get the date to look like a date is to put it in its own cell, but this doesn't look smooth.

    Try this:

    ="as of : "&TEXT(A1, "mmmm dd, yyyy")

    It's never too late to learn something new.
