Appending one number to another (& Operator??)

My senario....
on Sheet3 I have cells filled in from A1 to A200
I want to copy Cell A1 from Sheet3 to range ("I9") on sheet1.
At the same time an Inputbox would come up asking the user to enter their job no.
the value of the inputbox would append itself to the front of Cell A1 on Sheet3 and copy it to Range (I9") on Sheet1.
example....
Number in Range ("A1") on sheet3 = Y600
the user would type in the inputbox the number 9999
I want the end result on Sheet1 Range ("I9") to read  9999-Y600 (is it also possible to get the "-" in there too?)
 Or if the user enters 8888 in the inputbox the end result would be 8888-Y600.
the rest of the macro returns back to sheet3 and deletes row 1 so this same number (Y600) cannot be used again and then returns to sheet1 for saving.

Thank you

Hi He4Giv,

There's an excel forum for these questions although it looks a lot like an assignment?

Public Sub GetNewJobNumber()
Dim strJob As String
  strJob = InputBox("Enter job number")
  Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("I9") = strJob & "-" & Worksheets("Sheet3").Range("A1")
  Worksheets("Sheet3").Range("A1:A1").Delete
  Rem don't know if this is neccessary
  ActiveWorkbook.Save
End Sub

HTH:O)Bruintje

PS not tested but i'll leave that up to you ;)
