pulling data from multiple cells and then adding text

Hello!

I'm able to create a field that takes information from two different cells and combines them into the new cell, but I also want to include some standard text in that same cell.

Specifically, I'm entering heights...as in 5 feet 6 inches. I'd like to be able to enter just a 5 in the first cell, a 6 in the 2nd cell, and have the 3rd cell automatically read 5ft 6in .

I can get the 5 and 6 to work, but I'm struggling with the integration of the text.

Can you help?
