Add Text Before a Formula

Occasional Contributor

Good Morning all, Excel amateur here again in need of some help.


I'm trying to add this text Account Number:

before this formula,

=”'Employer Summary'!B6


B6 is the account number on another sheet. Could someone please show me the formula for this?


Thanks in advance

It's absolutely easy as follows:

="Account Number: "&'Employer Summary'!B6


All you need is to put the text in double-quotes and join it to the formula using the ampersand operator &.


Hope that helps
