    Combining text and the TODAY function help

    Hello people I am in need of assistance in trying to complete the following formula.

    The formula is to consist of text at the start an example been "hello world " then I wanted it to have a space then today's date showing.

    I did the following formula ="Hello World " & TODAY() thinking that would be enough but instead I get the following result

    Hello World 41933 I know that the numbers is due to excel calculating the date in it's own method.
    The question I need answering is how do I do it so that instead of the above it comes out as Hello World 21/10/2014.

    Any advice would be grateful and thanks

    Try this:
    ="Hello World "&TEXT(TODAY(),"DD/MM/YYYY")
    Does that help?

    Thanks that did help sorry to bother you again.
    Is there anyway of having the above code but adding a day to the date that is on the computer so the 21/10/2014 would come up as 22/10/2014.
    Thanks again
