Quick question for everyone:

Cell a1 contains $ 4,322.50, formated as currency. So far so good.

Cell b1 contains:
=''Your total will be ''&a1&'' plus tax''

It shows up as:
Your total will be 4322.5 plus tax

How can I make it show up format as currency?
I.e. : Your total will be $ 4,322.50 plus tax

Any suggestions??

Thanks as always.
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.
Told you it was simple

Yep, I should have known that one. Haven't had to use DOLLAR in a while.

Thanks again folks;

No better than the others, but slightly different:
="Your total will be $"&FIXED(A1,2)&" plus tax"
