That sounds like what I was looking for. I'll play with it later.

Two simple questions which should be available through Help, but I
haven't been able to find anything.
1. Is there a way to format content within a formula? I need a cell
that concatenates a properly-formatted date to some text, but I can't
find any way to specify the date format.
2. In conjunction with #1, is there a function to return an entire
date in external format rather than having to get the month, day, and
year separately? All I've found is a way to convert a human date to
an internal date.
The TEXT() function is your friend.
I build the cell formula as
... what I really want is MM/DD/YYYY.
Any ideas how to simplify this?
="my text "&TEXT(R2;"MM/DD/YYYY")
I trust this helps.
