Plus text to cell value with formulas


You can use formulas to plus text to cell value with the following formulas.

If you want to plus text at the beginning and end of cell value, the concatenate formula can help you: =CONCATENATE("text ",A1," text").

For example, I want to separately add text “Local” at the beginning, and add text “Grade 3” at the end of cell A2.

1. Select a blank cell, enter formula =CONCATENATE("Local ",A2," Grade 3") into the Formula Bar, and then press the Enter key. Then you can see the certain texts are added to the specified location of the existing cell value as below screenshot shown.

Notes:

1. For adding text at the beginning of a cell value only, you can use formula: =CONCATENATE("text ",A2).

2. For adding text at the end of a cell value, you can use formula: =CONCATENATE(A2," text")

3. The formula ="text" &A1, =A1& "text" or ="text" &A1& "text" can also help you. And if you want to separate the texts with delimiter (says comma), you can add “,” in the formula such as =A1&","&"text".
