How to convert result in Excel cell to text?

How to convert result in Excel cell to text?

For Exemple:

A1: name
B1: firstname
C1: =A1&"."&B1

I don't want to see the result as formula anymore in C1 but keep the result in C column in text mode (like name.firstname).

How can I do that?

Right click on the cell, go to Format Cells, go to Number tab and select Text.

Just put ' (apostrophe) before "=" in formula
I dont think you want to paste values... your excel must be shoing you the formulas instead of the results...
1) try formatting it as NOT text, and then F2 and enter
2) make sure excel is set to show the results instead of formulas (see images)
