I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be

Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10
