Excel 2013 Formula not converting


I'm using Office 2013 and Excel is not converting my formula to the value. For example:

A1, B1
Doe, John

When I do =A1&", "&B1 in cell C2, I'm expecting Doe, John. However I get =A1&", "&B1. It is not select the values in cell A1 and B1. This worked fine in Office 2010. What is the correction?

just right click C2, select Format Cells and make it General. Then enter C2 cell (double click or F2) and press ENTER
You see formula in C2 and not Values probably because C2 is formatted as Text
