Hi guys,

I'm a bit confused about how to format a cell of which formula to use to have the expected end result.

I have a few cells like this:

6491
7620
6486
7610-8
0888-8
0880-9
0888-8
894
890
898

and i would like add a fixed number in between which is 984100, so it would look like this:

64919841000
76209841000
64869841000
76109841008
08889841008
08809841009
08889841008
08949841000
08909841000
08989841000

So those cell that has only 4 digits will have a extra 0 in the end, and those that has a number 1 to 9 in the end will get the last number in the end and those that only have 3 digits will add a extra 0 in the beginning and a extra 0 in the end.

so like this:

6491 = 6491 + 984100 + 0  = 64919841000
and
7610-8 = 7610 + 984100 + 8 = 76109841000
and
894 = 0894 + 984100 + 0 = 08949841000


Hope this made sense

Could you ever have only 3 digits to the left of the hyphen? (e.g. 888-8 rather than 0888-8)

Awesome!
This works although there is one thing, those that only has 3 digits in the cell it need to add a 0 in the start aswell... how to do so?

I should note that the IFERROR() function only works on Excel 2007 onwards. Example workbook attached. If you need this to work in older versions, it can be rewritten to use backward compatible functions.

Taking note of the 3 digit value followed by hyphen:

=IFERROR(IF(LEN( LEFT(A2,FIND("-",A2)-1))=3,"0","") & LEFT(A2,FIND("-",A2)-1) & "984100" & RIGHT(A2,1),IF(LEN(A2)=3,"0","") & A2 & "9841000")
