Excel formula help

Occasional Visitor

I want my formula to be a cell * a number to a maximum of 2000


so for example:

If A1*.05 equals more than 2,000 I want the Max amount to show in the cell as 2,000


If it's under 2,000 than the number can be whatever the calculation.

The min function will show the smallest of the values. If A1*0.5 is less than 2000, that result will be shown. If it is greater than 2000, the cell will show 2000, because that is the smaller of the two values.

I am merging data from Excel to Word.  The format of the date in the Excel File is dd-mm-yy.

When I merge to my Word Document, the date appears in American Format.

e.g. 06-Nov-2015 appears as 11/6/15.

How can I correct this to appear in UK format -  i.e. 6/11/15   or even 06 November 2015? 

Thank you for your help.
