How to plus text to cell value in Excel?
In some cases, you need to add or plus certain text to existing cell value in Excel. And you may spend too much time in manually typing text in the existing cell value. This article provides two methods to help you easily plus text to cell value in Excel.
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 function 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 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.
