Concatenate a point.

Another problem is that first formula must provide a result formatted as
a date, let's say June 2.  The second formula must provide a result as a
day-number-of-the-year (which I haven't figured out how to do yet). 
Using concatenate the result is a 5 digit number returned for the first
formula even though the cell is formatted as a MMMM D.

How can these format requirements be maintained?

The answer to this question is very similar to that for the almost
identical question that you asked (and had answered) last November 21st:

If a cell contains a formula, the result of that formula is what
appears in the cell, so having two formulae would be simply
contradicting yourself. As you already know, if you wanted F30-2 you
would not expect to use =F30 and then =-2 separately but instead
=F30-2. In the same way, you must construct a single formula that
creates the combination of values that you ask for. You can combine
results using the CONCATENATE() function or, more simply, the "&"
operator.  Try:
=F30-2&"   "&A10+4

Incidentally, do please put your name in the real name field of your
mail messages: it's an elementary courtesy to those offering to help you.

I trust this helps.
