Excel - Add a suffix or prefix

December 2016




Issue


I need a formula that will add a zero at the end of a 4 digit number in each cell.

Solution


Use this formula:
Let say value is in A1, then in B1, use (to add zero as suffix):
=LEFT(A1 & "00000", 5) 

To add zero as prefix:
=RIGHT("00000" & A1, 5) 

Note that
