Adding text to a formula in Microsoft Excel


You want to have text and the result of a formula in the same cell; for example the cell should say “Total Sales Made: ” followed by the result of the calculation to work out annual sales.

Starting Point: Click in the cell in which you want the result.


Type an equals sign as all formulae start with an equal sign, then type in the required text enclosed within double apostrophes, in this case: “Total Sales Made: “ Now type in an ampersand (&) sign. Now enter the relevant formula, in this case SUM(B4:B25).

Press the Enter key.

Format the cell as required.
