I have a cell that is not quite right:
window=F3
I want the text "window=" but then the value of cell F3 after it.
As it is, I get "window=F3"

Give the points to rorya, but there's also a CONCATENATE function that some of my users prefer (because the quotes and & signs confuse them).

=CONCATENATE("window=",F3)

I was hoping you'd give it to rorya, but I guess he has enough points... ;)

Thanks for the grade.

Cheers,
Sean

I got my share. :) A split is always fair where someone adds useful info.
