I am using =IF(LEFT(A1,1)="0",A1,CONCATENATE("0",A1)) to try and add a suffix of 0 to a column of data, yet for some weird reason it isnt working if the column already starts with a 0.
the column (A:A) is formatted general (have also formatted them text but the same issue applied), yet when I apply this formula, its returning a completely random number if the field in column A:A already start with a 0, and the forumula is only returning the correct values if the value in A:A doesnt start with 0. Any ideas why?
I was also hoping to add a 3rd clause, whereby if there is no data in column A:A i.e. a blank cell, rather than just add a 0 with nothing else in column B, to do nothing at all, i.e. leave the cell blank.
