Results of formula doesn't show in Excel

I am totally perplexed. Excel spreadsheet with three columns.  Column B has last name and column C has first name.  I want to concatenate those to into last, first.
Here is the confusion.  I know the formula and here is what is in the cell.
=CONCATENATE(B2,", "+C2)
That produces exactly that:
=CONCATENATE(B2,", "+C2) and not the results of the formula.  As I build it using the "Insert Function" button I can see the results is what I want but when I press enter only the formula shows.  I build it from scratch by typing all in and get the same.  What am I missing?
Formatting?  Is so what?
Thanks in advance.

You type in a formula and you see the formula, not the results?  Open the sheet and press CTRL + ` (grave accent)
