In Excel (2007), how do you get a quotation mark to be included as text itself rather than its usual role as a text indicator?

For example, suppose you are creating a line of text by combining the text in several cells with various connecting text and the resulting formula includes this:


 where the vertical bars (|) represent quotation marks.  In other words, it needs to include the text :

    ","    (quotation mark - comma - quotation mark)

Is there a way to do that?


PS  Would the word "concatenate" be appropriate to use somewhere above?  I've seen it before and looked up the definition but I don't really understand the correct usage.  Thanks
