Default Add a string to a cell


I have a column with lots of rows having different numbers in it. I need
a add a string to each of the cell before the number.

For example:

Col A

1234
2345
3456
4567

String to be added = 'AB'

Result:

Col A
AB1234
AB2345
AB3456
AB4567

Any help please.... TIA.

You could try a "Custom" format of:
"AB"General,
Which display and print what you're asking.

This will leave the numbers as real numbers, just in case you might need
future calculations.
