Shippers tracking Number

When looking up a FedEx tracking number the URL format is:
="https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=TRACKING_NUMBER&cntry_code=us"

The TRACKING_NUMBER BEING A 12-15 digit.

I get a report with tracking numbers, lets say A1 contains a tracking number

If I do:
="https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers="&VALUE(A1)&"&cntry_code=us"

And then click the URL contains the "A1" and not the value of A1

Is it possible to get the actual number and not the cell location?

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you tried this:

="https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers="&A1&"&cntry_code=us"

This should just display the contents of the cell A1.

In the formula bar:
="https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers="&VALUE(A1)&"&cntry_code=us"

In the Cell (Hyperlink):
https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=012345678901&cntry_code=us

When above "clicked" and appearance in address bar:
https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=%22&VALUE(A1)&%22&cntry_code=us

How can I get: %22&VALUE(A1)&%22
to be: 012345678901

Thanks

I recommend using the Hyperlink formula.  Your formula then becomes:

=HYPERLINK("https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=" & A1 & "&cntry_code=us")
