Can you give me an example of a concatenation formula for a column

The resulting column would have the text and number in one cell.
You can concatenate values using the CONCATENATE() function or - more
easily - using the & operator. I'm guessing that you might want an
intervening blank between your text and the number, so you need something like
This works equally with numbers, which are naturally converted to
text on the fly. But remember that the number stored in a cell is not
necessarily what you can see: this is also influenced by the cell
formatting. The cell formatting of the number is not respected by the
automatic conversion, which instead uses the full expression of the
stored (or calculated) value. So you may instead wish to control this
conversion using the TEXT() function, e.g.
The format codes used in the TEXT() function are the same as you use
(and can see) in the "Format code" box of the Format Cells dialogue.
I trust this helps.
