Build a string in Excel VBA that would be the same as this formula

I have this formula in a cell within my workbook.
=CONCATENATE(E4, " ", TEXT(A1,"mmmm")," ",TEXT(A1,"yyyy")," MyFile")
Instead of depending on that cell to exist I just want to set a string to equal the result that would be in that cell via VBA
Assuming my string is created and is named "FileName" how do I get filename = the value of that 'formula'?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don't say which cell the formula is in or sheet it's on but let's assume it's in F4 on Sheet1.

This code will put the result of the formula in FileName.
FileName = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("F4").Value

Open in new window


If you don't want to use the formula you could use this.
FileName = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("E4").Value & " " & Format(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value, "mmmm yyy ") & " MyFIle"

Thanks Norie!  NOT using the formula was indeed the point.  I was able to plug all the right things into your syntax and get just what I needed.  :-)

Oh, I should note that the "yyy" part gave me a 'funky' number for year so I used "yyyy".
