A Concatenate formula I use inserts a number in text to create something simliar to the following: Cost of twelve gross wigets total $2967.56 and freight is included. It works find, but I would like to have the numbers formatted as such: $2,967.56...I have tried many ways to do this with a formula...will I have to use VB?

Thanks before hand.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

With the text and amount in cells
try

=A2&DOLLAR(D2)&A3

Revise references as necessary.

You could also look at the function Text.
