I have been trying to concatenate a named ref with a cell and it is not working...  any ideas?

PO = ActiveCell.Value
            ActiveCell.Offset(0, -5).Select
            ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(PO,""/"",RC[-1])"

Open in new window

If PO is:  123456789   and RC[-1] is  3000   I am looking to get:  123456789/3000
