Display 2 dates in one cell with text

Hi all you BO people,

I have yet another unsolved problem.

I have a cell in which I need to display the following:

[CustomDateDimension] to [CustomDateDimension]

I can easely put in a single [CustomDateDimension] (which is a SQL retrieved date). And that shows all nice. But as soon as I put in another date in the very same cell, it returns "MULTIPLE VALUE".

I then tried this:

=[CustomDateDimension]+"insert some text here"+[CustomDateDimension]

which also generate "MULTIPLE VALUE".

My question:

Is it possible to input 2 different dates and some text in one cell, and how is that done?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Andy,

    You are Trying to Concatenate to date objects and display them in a single cell. As your date Object contains multiple Dates WEBI can't Display all of them in Single cell thats why it is giving Error. If You hardcode the dates it will dislplay them correctly in single cell.

    WEBI Will Display correctly Date in Single Cell if you use Like this:

    ="9/24/1984""To" "10/12/1985" because there are only two values that WEBI is Concatenating.

    Not Possible when you use Date Object that contains Multilple dates valuesin a column..

    WHen you USe like this

    =[Date Obejct]" To" [Date Object] it will correctly display the Concatenation Only when you add New column to the table and insert this formula to it.

    I Hope this Helps..
