concatenate date / time

Hi. 

 

I have a spreadsheet with columns 'date of delivery' and 'time of delivery'.

 

I want to concatenate these two fields in the dataflow to produce one date/time field.

 

I appreciate that the fields have to be text to concatenate them. Can anyone provide me with a script to do this please?

 

Here's what I have : 

#"Added custom 2" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed column type 1", "Custom"each Time.ToText([crf79_timeofdelivery]) & [Date of Delivery Attempt])
 
Expression.Error: We cannot apply operator & to types Text and Date.
Details
Operator = &
Left = 10:30
Right = 7/15/2020 12:00:00 AM
