    Need help with a formula

    I am trying to create a custom sku for inventory that will consist of 3 pieces of information.

    Book #
    Page #
    Card #

    For Book 1, Page 1, Card 9 the sku should appear as B1P1C9.

    There are 20 books, each Book will have a maximum of 100 pages, each page will have a maximum 9 cards.

    I'd like to create a spreadsheet with a formula that could create this output for me so I don't need to manually create this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Will you have a list somewhere of exactly how many pages each book has. Assuming it is always 100 and 9 cards

    I just tried this formula, and it does not appear that the page number reset when it got to the next book. So the first page in Book 2 was 101.
