    #Value! Error when Concatenating

    I am trying to concatenate two fields together. They are both
    numerical fields. I have never had a problem but for some reason some
    will
    work but most give me the #Value! error. I am using the 2003 version
    of Excel. Does anyone know why this is happening? There are no
    formulas in these two cells.

    I tried +C13&D14 and I also tried =concatenate(C13,D14) and even
    =concatenate(C13&D14) but I keep getting the #Value! error.





    Thanks

    Lyma,

    Did you try
    =C13&D14
    ?
    What are in C13 and D14? Formulas?

    both are numerical fields. Yes I tried the = c13&D14. On some it
    works but most it brings back a #Value! error. There are no formulas
    in these two fields I am trying to concatenate.

    Lyma

    Try using Tools/Formula Auditing/Evaluate formula

    I might reveal to you what is happening...

    I just now tried that but all it shows is the cell I am using
    underlined, it doesn't show what the problem is. This is driving me
    nuts.

    When I did the evaluate formula, I notice on the correct one, it shows
    the field in quotes. On the one that gives me the error it shows it
    without quotes even though the actual numbers don't show quotes. I
    notice if I put an apostrophe in front of the number, the concatenation
    works. Are you supposed to always do that with numbers? I never had
    to before. Just wondering if it is a weird glitch or something.

    Check your other post in worksheet.functions

    Tools/Options/Transition
    Uncheck Trasition Formula evaluation

    #Value! Error when Concatenating

    Beege,

    Thank you so much for the tip - unchecking Transition Formula evaluation. I have looked everywhere to get rid of the #value...

    Thanks again.
