Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

I think you are going to have to show us a example of what is in the cell(s) and what you want it (them) to look like afterwards.

Why not make the second number a cell reference ....
So if you put the number in say cell B12 and change the formula to
Code:
=A12 + B12
you can then change the number to anything without changing the formula
