Thanks- the"/" works perfectly.

Nothing's easy in this world. 

What has been created in the calc sheet is the day number of
        the year which is followed by the "/".  In the cell beside the
        result is the remaining number of days in the year.  Here's an
        example of what I'd like to see for this date (February 10,

41 / 325

In this case 325 is the remaining
      number of days in the year 2020 from the date Feb. 10.
The cell in which the formula used to
      obtain the figure of 325 is-


"S4" is the cell where the day number
      of the year is located returned by the formula, as mentioned

      / "

What happens to the remaining days
      number in cell S4 the dreaded error-

#VALUE!   is returned.

I suspect this has something to do with
      the formatting of the cell but can't figure it out.

Any ideas?

      specified.Wouldn't it be easier to use=DAYS("2020-02-10";$Begin_Here.$E$76)or 
just="2020-02-10"-$Begin_Here.$E$76?Even more easily, abandon your "Begin_Here" value and try (with
      your 10 February 2020 date in R4)=R4-DATE(YEAR(R4)-1;12;31)This will produce the number 41 - 
providing the result cell is
      appropriately formatted.It would be nice to have a /
        (forward slash) after the day number of the year which is
        returned by the above formula. How can this be done?You can concatenate strings using the 
"" operator, so just
      put"/" after any of these formulae, such as=R4-DATE(YEAR(R4)-1;12;31)"/"The numerical value 
41 is implicitly converted to a string and
      concatenated with the slash to create the *string* 41/ .I trust this helps.Brian Barker
