# concatenate and multiply problem

#### tipoo

Hi,

A B C D
Island 2 3 4

Is it possible to first multiply digits in cell B2,C2 and D4 and then
concatenate text in cell A1. Also I want to apply formula in A2. I want to
see something like this in cell A1:

Island 24

Try this:

=A1&" "&PRODUCT(B2:C2,D4)

If I understand correctly, try this in A1.

=A2&" "&B2*C2*D2

HTH

Thanks heaps for a quick response but is it possible to use this formula in
cell A1. Because when put this formula it comes out zero in cell a1

Thanks

Hi Howard,

Thanks but is it possible to use this formula in cell A1 which basically
means the value that you are concatenating is in the cell (A1)where you are
applying the formula?

No you can't do that. If you have "Island" in cell A1 and you try to enter
the formula into cell A1, it will displace the word "Island" and the formula
will be the sole occupant of A1.

You could enter this in A1 and it will return "Island 24".
="Island"&" "&PRODUCT(B22)

No. You can't enter the formula in A1 since A1 already contains an entry.

You have to put the formula in another cell.
