    Concatenation with Cell Format (XP; 03)

    Is it possible to format text that is referenced in a cell concatenation?

    Example:
    Cell B7 = Time
    Cell B10 formula = "Now is the " &B7 & " for all"

    The end result in Cell B10 would look like: Now is the Time for all


    Thanks,
    John

    Yes. Since B10 is a formula, it should begin with =.

    ="Now is the "&B7&" for all"

    Hans,

    It does not work for me. When I try to bold the B7 in the formula the bold button is greyed out.

    I'm sorry, I misunderstood your original question. The answer is no, you cannot change the formatting (font, color, bold, ...) of part of the result of a formula.
