Type this formula =TEXT(A2,"m/dd/yy ")&TEXT(B2,"hh:mm:ss")(A2 indicates the first data in date column, B2 stands the first data in time column, you can change them as you need) into a blank cell, and press Enter key, then drag the fill handle to fill the range you want to use this formula. See screenshot:
Tip: You also can use this formula =A2+B2 and then format the result cells as date and time formatting.

The article saved my job because I finished the report I work on in 5minutes but I need assistance of a formula that will return a difference between two cells with combined date and time. Example 18/2/19 08:35 and 21/2/19 08:32.
Why make it so complicated? Why not simply say "=A2+B2" and format that column to display date and time? As long as you have only put the date in column A, it will assume the time is 00:00, and the addition will therefore be the exact date and time of the two columns.
