I have a spreadsheet with ticket numbers from another team. I need to add INC to the left of the numbers.

For example if I have a number 0101999
I need it to look like INC0101999

Is there an automated way to add this?

Add a column then use formula:

= "INC"& A1

and copy down

You could insert a column next to the column with numbers (eg say the numbers are on column C2 and down) and then insert this formula

="INC"&C2

If you want to do it via VBA, can you post a sample?

Does the INC have to be actually in the cell value?

You could use a Custom Format:

"INC" 0

Select the required cells and apply the formatting using the usual cell formatting options, choose Custom.
