    prefix and suffix fixed value

    Hi Experts,

    I want to prefix and suffix fixed value. E.g. I copy paste 123 or ABC to a cell and it should show file://ImageFolder/123.pdf or file://ImageFolder/ABC.pdf

    Prefix: file://ImageFolder/
    Suffix: .pdf
    Value: 123 and ABC

    Expected result: file://ImageFolder/123.pdf
    file://ImageFolder/ABC.pdf

    Any help please?

    Try using Custom Formatting
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: prefix and suffix fixed value

    Hi Ford,

    I tried with custom formatting "XXX”#"ZZZ" and "XXX”Text"ZZZ". It works well with numbers but not working with alphabets or alphanumeric. Am I doing something wrong? I want it to work with numeric, alphanumerics.

    Thanks,

    Hi Ford,

    Now the alphabet works but not the number. Both number and alphabets are working if I type the value in the cell but when I copy/paste only alphabet works and not the number. Could you do your magic in the attached file? I want to copy/paste the value from other field and there is no manual entry.

    Thanks,

    Re: prefix and suffix fixed value

    short answer - dont copy/paste.

    When you copy/paste, you also transfer the formatting from the source cell, which is probably wiping out and replacing the custom formatting you applied.
