    Concatenation of a date field with a text field (excel 2003)

    Is there a way to concatenate a date field with a text field and keep the date format mm/dd/yyyy? When I concatenate, the date value becomes a numerical value as opposed to the date format.

    You can use the TEXT function to format the date. Say that A1 contains a date and B1 contains a text value. You can use the formula
    <code>
    =TEXT(A1,"mm/dd/yyyy")&B1
    </code>
    or variations thereof.
