Hi,

I have a list of 2700 cells with references in. For reporting purposes, I need these references to begine with "ID" however at present they do not.

How can I insert ID at the beginning of each reference without doing it manually?

E.g. Instead of 1234567 it shoudl read ID 1234567 and so on.

Thanks in advance

Are the cells in random places or in a single column/row

Code:
Sub test()
    With Range("a2", Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
        .Value = Evaluate("if(" & .address & "<>"""",""ID ""&" & .address & ","""")")
    End With
End Sub

If you are not happy with VBA
In a blank column type ="ID "&A1
copy this down to the bottom then copy and paste special Values over the top
