Hello,

I have a formula in cell D4 that contains a reference to cell C2 which
contains a date. Cell C2 is formatted to display its information as a date.
How do I retain the date formatting of the information contained in cell C2
when it is displayed in cell D4?

The date that is in cell C2 is: 11/1/2006
And the formula that is in cell D4 is: = "'" & C2 & "'"

Cell D4 displays like this: '39022'
But I want cell D4 to display like this: '11/1/2006'

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Corey Foote
