    change a cell with a letter and string of numbers to a word and a string of numbers

    I am trying to convert all the data in a particular column to "<word> <letter> <numbers>". Some are "<word> <letter>", some are "<letter> <numbers>". Is there a formual that will auto add in these fields to every cell? I have attached a file to demonstrate further what I mean. Thanks in advance! Book1.xls

    Select the column and replace "a* " sans quotes with "company a " sans quotes.

    How about..

    ="company "&LEFT(A2,1)&" "&RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-FIND(" ",A2))
    or
    ="company "&LEFT(A2,1)&" "&LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A2,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789")),ROW($1:$10000))))
