If date is in A2, hours (as a number) in B2 and minutes (also as a number) in C2 then in D2 try


format D2 in required format

PS Hey Saurabh!

Use this formula assuming you have values in A1 as in date and time in b1..

=TEXT(a1,"mm/dd/yy") & " " & text(b1,"hh:mm")

Alternatively you can also do this...


and format the same as mm\dd\yy hh:mm by right click format cells-->custom and enter your format there..

Hi Barry, How ru doing buddy..?
Assuming your 3 columns are A2(mm/dd/yy), B2(hh)  and C2(mm),
then formula to concatenate all three is as follows:

=TEXT(A2,"mm/dd/yyyy" )&" "& RIGHT("00" & B2,2) & ":" & RIGHT("00" & C2,2)
