This does not work with Australian date formats. 12/10/2020 (27 Nov) when combined with the time will show 10/12/2020 (10 Dec).

Apologies, I want to withdraw my previous comment. (I copied and pasted the formula, and I now realise that I can change the format.)

It doesn't work. I do not understand the message below. I don't need it explained to me. I just need a formula that works please. Thank you.
"There's a problem with this formula.
Not trying to type a formula?
When the first character is an equal(=) or minus (-) sign, Excel thinks it's a formula.
you type: =1=1, cell shows : 2
To get around this, type an apostrphe (') firts:
you type: '=1=1, cell shows: =1+1"
I have replaced the rows and cells numbers and letters and have done it several times.

You have to replace the comma after the cell selection (in this case A2 and B2) with a semicolon.

Thank you for solving a problem that I have been wrestling with for the longest time!  None of the "help" on CONCATENATE worked for me, but your formula above worked instantly.  Fabulous!
