Date format problem

Hi, at present I have:

"Date: "&If(IsBlank(ViewRecords_gallery.Selected.'Todays Date'), "-", ViewRecords_gallery.Selected.'Todays Date')

 

Which is fine buts displays in US format. How do I incorporate "[$-en-US]dddd dd mmmm yyyy" into the formula?

I've tried several different ways but don't really understand what I'm doing 🙂

Probably like this...

"Date: "&If(IsBlank(ViewRecords_gallery.Selected.'Todays Date'), "-", Text(ViewRecords_gallery.Selected.'Todays Date', "[$-en-US]dddd dd mmmm yyyy"))

I got the dreaded white cross in red circle 😞

The explanation is attached as a screenshot. Any ideas?

Some garbage text was included because I am posting from mobile. Can you please try my code above again? I removed the extra characters.

Lovely. Thank you. I did wonder what the extra bit was 🙂

Yeah, I frequently browse the forums on my mobile and whenever I go back to edit my post for grammar it adds many weird symbols that I have to delete.
