Quickly convert cell formulas to text strings in Excel

In Excel, when you enter a formula, you will get a result value. But, sometimes, you want to display the formula results as the text strings in the worksheet cells. For example, I enter a formula =A1+A2-A3 into a cell, and I will get a result value, now I would like to convert the result value to this text string =A1+A2-A3 in Excel. With our Kutools for Excel’s Convert Formula to Text utility, you can convert cell formulas to text strings with only one click.
