    [SOLVED] Keep Date in Date Text Format not Date Value

    Just a silly problem I have run into.

    I have this formula exactly:

    =DATE(YEAR(TODAY()), MONTH(TODAY())-2, 0)&" - "&DATE(YEAR(TODAY()), MONTH(TODAY()), 0)

    What displays is "40298 - 40390".

    What I want to display is "4/30/2010 - 7/31/2010".

    Thanks!
