Use the following formula, then apply a custom format to the Date column (mmm-dd-yyyy).

mm     dd     yyyy     Date
03     11     2011     =DATE(C2,B2,A2)

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

@wdosanjos: the Date() syntax is Date(year, month, day), so, using your example, it should be

=date(C2,A2,B2)

Not for points.
