In cell value AND notes e.g." 12.50 and some notes here "

I'm looking for a Lotus 123 equivalent feature in Excel.

In 123 I could enter into a cell:

+23+10;and some notes here

and the cell would evaluate to a value of 33, and the notes would be in view in the edit box when one selected the cell.

(The Excel cell note feature is not what I am looking for, wonderful though it is.)

thanks for your interest.

The N() function allows you add comments directly inside your cells on your formulas. To use the function to add a comment, simply add a plus sign (+) to the end of your formula, and then enter some text in quotes inside the parentheses, passing that text to the N() function.

That feature is not available in excel.
You can do following:
=23+10&"and some notes here"
By the way.... N() is for Office 2013

N() is the correct/best way to do this task... and it is available in previous versions also, not just 2013
