Excel Facts

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Re: how do you put quotes around a string and have it displa

Hi use double quotes.

Code:
Sub test()
Dim MyStr As String

MyStr = "Outside quotes ""Inside Quotes"" Outside again"
MsgBox MyStr
End Sub

or if you are using the concatenate function you can use:

Code:
=E14&"""test"""&F14
