Folks

I have a field value in row/col B3 (this is a variable though) how can I use this to concatenate with multiple other fields i.e.


=B3&C3&B3
=B3&C4&B4
=B3&C5&B5
=B3&C6&B6
=B3&C7&B7

essentially b3 remains fixed in the formula

You can use $ signs to produce an "absolute" reference, i.e. one that won't change when copied down, e.g. use this formula in row 3 copied/filled down

=B$3&C3&B3
