In Microsof Excel: How do I get the result of a formula, to reflect in a sentence? For example: I have a calculation in cell A1. Now in A2, I have the following sentence: "The result is.... and is reflected on the schedule of differences" . I want the result from A1 to reflect in this sentence where the ...... is.

You can use & to add strings and values together. For example:

= "The result is " & A1 & " and is reflected on the schedule of differences"

Depending on how you want to show the number you might also need TEXT, FIXED or ROUND function around A1 e.g. for 2 decimal places FIXED(A1,2) – barry houdini Apr 9 '13 at 16:19
