Field update with Picklist value and Date (Picklistvalue / Created Date)

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could help, please!!!

I am trying to create a field update that will update a text field with the data from another picklist field and the created date field.

For the picklist field I originally had TEXT (picklistfield_name), but I was not able to add the DATEVALUE Created Date.

Any idea of how this can be achieved?

Thank you,

Rog

Update field with formula :       TEXT( Adequacy_of_Position__c ) + " " + TEXT(DATEVALUE(CreatedDate))

Did you mean field update will be concatenation of picklist value + created date value?
Can you please let me know the exact requirement including objects and field names?

Hello Nayana, thank you for your quick response. How are you doing? ;-)

That is correct. I need those 2 field values to concatenate.

The field to be polulate is: Opportunity Positioning (Name field)

The fields I need are: Adequacy of Position (Picklist field)
                               Created Date (Date field)
