Hi all,

I have this line in a waiver: ="That the total amount of the contract including extras is $ "&D35&" prior to this payment on which he has received payment of $"&F35&" prior to this payment. "

Which produces this: "That the total amount of the contract including extras is $ 91855223 prior to this payment on which he has received payment of $ 2323312.11 prior to this payment"This seems pretty simple but it's not transferring the formatting of the referenced cell.

Could someone help me to get some commas and .00 in there??

Thanks!

You should use the TEXT function.
="That the total amount of the contract including extras is $ "&TEXT(D35," #,##0.00")&" prior to this payment on which he has received payment of $"&TEXT(F35,"0.00")&" prior to this payment. "

PERFECT!! Thank you so much. It's hard to know what to look for when you can't describe it so I though using what I found was a great solution. Obviously not, yours worked perfectly!
