Generic formula:

DATE(year,month,day)

Syntaxt and Arguments

Year: a number between 1 and 4-digit number that indicates the year of date.

If the number is between 0-1900, Excel adds 1900 to the year number automatically. For example, the year number is 10, the date of the formula result will be shown as 1910.

If the number is between 1900 and 9999, the number is the actual year in the result.

Month: a number that indicates the month of date.

When the number is between 1 and 12, it is the actual month in the result.

If the number is greater than 12, it adds the number of months to the first month of the specified year. For instance, DATE(2019,14,21) returns 2/21/2020.

If the number is negative, Excel will subtract the absolute value of month plus 1 from the first month of the specified year. For instance, DATE(2011,-5,1) returns 7/1/2011.

Day: a number that indicates the day of date.

If the number is greater than the total number of days in the specified month, Excel will add the number of days to the first day of the specified month.

For example, DATE(2019,3,32) will return the date 2/3/2019.

If the number is negative, Excel will subtract the absolute value of day plus 1 from the first day of the month specified.

For example, DATE(2020,4,-2) will return the date 3/29/2020.

Return Value

The formula returns to a valid date in Excel.
