    Hello all,

    I want the following formula to return this:

    As of: 05/08/2002

    Here's what I have: ="As of "&today()

    I get the date in text format (ie. 37384). How can I get what I want here?

    Does formatting the cell as a Data work?

    Is it not:

    ="As of: "&TEXT(TODAY(),"mm/dd/yyyy")


    Is it possible to add text after the date too, say you wanted it to read: "as of (today's date) and subject to change and availability
