I was asked recently how one could add X to every number in a cell – this would be for a product code, a part number etc.
This is a matter of formatting the data. Select the cells you want formatting. On the Home tab, in the Number group, click the little dialog box launcher arrow . The Format Cells dialog box will be displayed with the Number tab uppermost.
Click Custom. In the box to the right, choose the format that is nearest to the one you already have – in this case #,##0.
Then in the Type box adjust to what you need, in this case ###0X.
Click OK. Your column will be formatted as required.
