Hi and Good day;
 
Im creating a formula field in CR, that consist of a date and text, I searched the Function and even Operator tabs, but can't seem to find, everytime I try to save it says that there's an error in formula.
 
my date looks like this... yyyy-mm-dd
 
and I'd like to add a text before the date field but all of them as a single formula field, also I'd like the date to be displayed as mm/dd/yyyy.
 
Please help. Thanks.

Create a formula like this:

"Your Text that comes befor the date " + ToText({your_date_field},"MM/dd/yyyy")

Notice the MM must be upper case.  lower case mm's are for minutes.

Sir, seems that the syntax is ok, there's no error anymore when I saved the formula. Thanks Ido.
