    Is there an alternative to using an apostrophe or single quote to designate a quantity or number as a label?

    This will probably sound obvious, but would formatting the cell(s) as Text do what you want? If not, what are you trying to accomplish?

    Sometimes formatiing cells to text doesn't work for for me. I know that sounds crazy, but it doesn't. I use this:

    =TRIM(TEXT(A1,0))

    Hi d2100:
    I am not sure about the purpose or the context of your question, but the # symbol is used in some cases instead of ' symbol!
