    I have a spreadsheet of all my vouchers for the year. I want to sort by date, then voucher and subtotal at each change in voucher number. I want to be able to roll that up so that both the date and the voucher number show next to the subtotal so I have a summary sheet to refer to (it's a lot of lines!!! not worth printing out the whole thing).

    Is there a way to format that so that the date pulls as it appears and doesn't get converted from 7/1/17 to 4256 or something like that? I want to insert a COLUMN on the following table that =A2&" - "&e2 to pulls the voucher date and the voucher number showing "7/15/2016 - 2001" next the subtotal for the voucher when it's rolled up. It's showing "42566 - 2001".

    VoucherDate TFundDescription TFund Amount Voucher
    7/15/2016 IDEA, PART B 1220 1,345.23 2001
    7/15/2016 IDEA, PART B 1220 1,000.00 2001
    7/15/2016 FACULTY HOUSING 1293 452.42 2001
    7/15/2016 ADMINISTRATION 1285 4,030.64 2001

    Thanks guys!

    sample spreadsheet attached may help
    if data is formated OK, then a simple Table of data and a pivot table would work - so after you have emntered the new data , all you do is refresh the subtotal will appear, I'm assuming this is the subtotal of the value of the voucher ??
