Start your text with a single quote ' if you want to enter what Excel might think is a formula, because it contains numbers or is a mathematical expression. The message box does say "If you are not trying to enter a formula, avoid using an equal sign, a minus sign, or precede it with a single quotation mark" 


When you hit the first "" it thinks you want to do a subtraction operation and tries to put a formula in the cell. If you first format the cell as text and then type that in you'll be fine.
