I have one column (A) with decimal numbers A second column currently has this function: =DEC2HEX(A1) The second column currently shows the hex equivalent of the decimal number e.g. 14=E I wish the second column to show "0xE" as it would in Visual Studio I have tried ="0x"+DEC2HEX(A1) and also ="0x"+TEXT(DEC2HEX(A1),"00") but neither work. How can I do this please?

Use & to concatenate text.

="0x"&DEC2HEX(A1)
