I’ve got 2 Excel (Text) data field which I want to combine the output in third one.
Example:

A1=5
A2=6

I would like A3 to become 56…(aka 5+6=56) not 11
Is there any way to add and not to calculate in this regard?

Thanks in advance!

If it is always single digit numbers you can also use

=10*A1+A2
