I am trying to find a way for an IF function to return both text and the characters from a field. What I have now, and what I am looking to get are this.

Say A1=Text 2, or a number or something and I have
=IF(........, "Text 1...<A1>",.....)

I need the A1 in the IF to actually show the value of what is in box A1, not physically the spelling A1. What I would be looking for would be "Text 1 Text 2", as what Excel returns on a true statement.

The hard part is I can only find out how to either return text, or return the cell value. I don't need what is in A1 to actually be computed as anything, but it is just the end solution to be displayed.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Yeah, that does it. I figured there must be a way to do it, I just wasn't sure the format. Thanks so much for the help I really appreciate it.
