Hi Selwyn,

I believe you are cross posting your questions with each experts which is not fair, since you are wasting each of our time.  

We are volunteers just spending our time to help someone but due to cross posting you are making our concept worthless.

I know the above words are something harmful and which i typed intentionally, because I seen your cross posting messages with other experts (In Private) for the same question which you asked with me earlier.

Please ask your question with AN expert (whoever you feel) and if you don't get the expected outcome then you can approach other expert by providing the link of your earlier thread.

Please have a look in the below link which is well drafted earlier to know what happens if you cross post your questions.

For the above query you should keep the cell formatting as text or the value of A1 should be entered by preceding single quote ' to make the cell entry as text which will leads the data to appear in formulabar with $ symbol as expected.  Or VBA solution will help you to achieve this...

Hope this helps!
