Adding text to the end of a value in a row.

I have values like this
"IUC-4100-HD", "KH1040" in the "A" column.

I want to add "-PS" to each row in that column, like :
"IUC-4100-HD-PS", "KH1040-PS", etc.

How can I do this? thanks

You could get that result in column B, e.g. if data starts at A2 then put this formula in B2 (or any other column in row 2)

=A2&"-PS"

Copy that formula down the column.

If you want the original data replaced then copy column B and then use Edit > Paste Special > Values to convert to fixed values (not reliant on the formulas) .....and then you can delete the original column

thanks Barry, ..
I put that formula in "X2", but it just creates one new row, in X3 : "I604-PS".
The remaining 2000 rows are blank.

Do I need to select the whole X column?

Did you mean X3? You may have copied an extra line when you copied the formula from here - make sure you copy only the formula itself.

Paste formula in X2 then put cursor on bottom right corner of the cell until you see a black "+" - that's the "fill-handle" - double click and the formula should fill down the column as far as you have continuous data in the adjacent column (I'm assuming you have data in column W)

did that, but now it fills in every other row (blank row in between) plus it's
putting the result of the row above it instead of the rows real value
ex: X4 contains  A3's new value.

Like I said, MikeMC, you may have copied an extra line when you copied from here - that can happen and throw the formula out.....

Try deleting column X and starting again. Just type the formula in X2

=A2&"-PS"

and then fill down as before - does that work now
