I am concatenating a number of cells, including text and numbers. I have the original number displayed as a fraction e.g. 1 1/3. When I concatenate this, the result is 1.333333333333.

I have tried reformating the original cell, without luck. Is there any way to control this aspect of the concatenation?

Thanks in advance.

Tom.

Use:

TEXT(A1,"# ?/?")

when concatenating A1 with other cells like in

=TEXT(A1,"# ?/?")&" "&B1

Try this...

=TEXT(+C3,"0.00")&" "&+D3

where C3 holds your fraction. This will convert your value into text and the "0.00" will determine how it is displayed. The more 0's after the decimal, the more positions that will show.

HTH,
