1. Create a worksheet with contents as below screenshot shown:

A. In cell A2, type the text string before the numbers.

B: Column B is the increment number column, in cell B2, type the first increment number, and then fill the below cells with the increment number you need.

C: In cell C2, type other text string after the numbers, in this example, please enter @localdomain.com (you need to format this cell as Text in advance).

2. In cell D2, type formula =$A$2&TEXT(B2,"000")&$C$2, then drag the Fill Handle down to the cells you want to get the increment number with text. See screenshot:

Notes:

1. . In the formula, “000” is the number of digits you want to insert between the texts.

2. In the formula, the texts referenced cells should be absolute.
