Create a date from 3 different cells [Solved/Closed]

Hello,

In excel I have date spread across 3 cells; 1 with the day (A1), 1 with the month (A2) and 1 with the year (A3).
I want to put these 3 numbers into one cell as a date (A4).
A1 A2 A3 A4
15 11 09 15-11-09

I've looked at the "date and time" functions, but can't find anything.

Does anyone know a function or a VBA code that will solve my issue?

Hello,
Use the formula DATE(year,month,day) in your case, write this formula into A4:
=DATE(C1,B1,A1)

and personalise your date format to have : dd-mm-yy

Funny coming across this thread again. I believe this is my first post ever on this site and Aquarelle's kind reply got me hooked. Have been trying to do the same for others ever since.

Funny, I can't get hooked to Excel. I must be more of an intellectual, a philosopher, a poet, a nature lover, a wanderer...peace on earth to all men of good will and the heck with the others.
Thanks a lot.
