The "concatenation" formula worked except  didn't bring over a few zeros before #, how would i make this work?

looked like this:

ALE 1109 000111 D

after using formula "concatenation"

looks like this now:

ALE 1109 111 D  (without spaces)

I need it to look like this in one cell:

ALE 1109 000111 D

Any help would be great.

look up for a tutorial of excel formulas, the one that you need its called "concatenate" and it does exactly what your looking for, it coverts several cells into one single cell and so you can add any caracter you want between each cells data.

example.- concatenate(A1,",",A2)

then just pull the formula all the way down to wherever you need.
