I have a cell with prefix "item "@
when I enter a value eg 102 the cell displays item 102.
how can I copy that full string without macro and paste to other cell?

or a format that will insert the whole string as a value? probably complicated as would have to enter number then the cell refresh add the prefix and then re insert the full string as a value ?

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
