Good Morning AT Community,

Would love some help on how to convert the date in the primary column (which is named Interactions in the screenshot). I am attempting to combine the name of the contact, type of interaction, and the date of the interaction into the name of the primary field. I get how to use Concatenate how to do this, but have tried every conceivable DATE_FORMAT method I can think of, and nothing gets me what I want - which is for the date to match the “When” field.

Thanks in advance.

Show what your formula is.

CONCATENATE(Contacts," - “,Type,” - ",DATETIME_FORMAT(When,“MM/DD/YY”)

that is one of the ones I have tried.

I also have one where I added a ) at the end

The general concept is correct. But you have a variety of different quotation marks there — some straight, some curly. They all need to be straight. And you would definitely need the extra parenthesis at the end or else you no longer have a valid formula that won’t even allow you to save it. Also, try to reduce the complexity of your formula by using the & symbol instead of the CONCATENATE function like this:

Contacts & " - " & Type & " - " & DATETIME_FORMAT(When,'MM/DD/YYYY')

That worked! Thank you!
