Default Excel - Golf - how to display "-2" as "2 Under" or "4"as "+4" or "4 Over" in a calculation cell

Have managed to create a formula that displays "0" as "Level", but cannot fathom out how to insert text before or after a value as above. The cell already has a calculation in it, e.g. =e5-e1 (e5 being gross score, and e1 being handicap.

Any help would be greatly received.

Steve

Alright so this can be done with concatenating.
Your formula should look like

=(E5-E1) & IF(E5-E1=0," Level",IF(E5-E10," More Text"," More Text))
