    Text format (2007)

    Ok - I have this vlookup that is suppose to return a date value - I've tried to put the Text () into the formula, but can't remember the correct place to put it to return a dd/mm/yy date format.

    I'm sure this is simple, but getting towards the end of the day and the brain is starting to wear out - any suggestions

    =VLOOKUP($A$3,'Data Input'!$A$3:$J$200,'Data Input'!I1,TRUE)

    If the value you're looking up is a date value, you only have to format the cell with the formula as a date.
    If you use the TEXT function, the result will be a text value that looks like a date, not a real date value.
