Code is

Function AddA(Offset_Cols_by, _
Offset_Rows_by As Integer) As Variant
Dim MyFormat
MyFormat = "A####"

AddA = Format(MyFormat & Application.Caller.Offset _
(Offset_Rows_by, Offset_Cols_by).Value)

End Function

Change to

AddA = Format(Application.Caller.Offset _
(Offset_Rows_by, Offset_Cols_by).Value,MyFormat)

You should have Application.Volatile in the function too - unless you pass the range to be offsetted from as an argument. The latter is more efficient because otherwise Excel will have to recalculate the UDF when anything on the sheet changes.
