I have my age in A1.  I want B1 to say, with the proper substitution:
"I am A1 years old."

How do I get the value of A1 in the B1 string?

Flyster is correct; Just a technicality... There should be another space between A1 and "years old".

Corrected would be:
="I am " & A1 & " years old"

Note the space at the front of " years old"
