without getting into scripting, an easy creative way to do this is as follows. You can use a similar concept for alot indirect cell editing.

1. insert a new column before the one you have your values in.
2. copy the new column and the one with your values.
3. paste them in notepad (this will show everything with a {Tab} before it
4. highlight from the beggining of any line to the beggining of any line to the beginning of your word and copy (basically you're copying a {tab}
5. go to Edit => Replace
6. Paste the {tab} in "What to Find" and replace it with ssh paul@
7. now copy everything from notepad and paste it back in excel

Column A      Column B        Column C
Tim                 Fox                 Tim Fox
ssh paul@    bart.com      ssh paul@bart.com  


Column C would be this...  =A2&" "&B2
Obviously copy that down the list of 500
