I have attached a spreadsheet that should explain what I am trying to do which is:

I want to concatenate text and date, but the date needs to be like 1st  Aug 16, 2nd, 3rd, 4th Aug 16 etc so not like 1/8/16, 1 Aug 16 or 1-8-16

So, Collections JK13 would become Collections BH13 24th Aug 16 after concatenation

For some dates, date prefix is not working e.g. 21, 22,31 etc. Please revise the formula. :)

Or another formula could be this.....
In G7
=F7&" "&DAY(G2)&MID("thstndrdth",MIN(9,2*RIGHT(DAY(G2))*(ABS(MOD(DAY(G2),100)-12)>1)+1),2)&" "&TEXT(G2,"mmmm, yyyy")

What does it mean to be "Always On"?
