Using MS Access/Format text data when creating reports

Question
I linked a field in my reports to a table text data that represents a period.  The current data reads '07'.  I want add "Per" in front of the '07'.  So in the format field I added "Per "@ and got "0PER 7.  I tried the '&', too.  Same result.  How can I get the data to read "Per 07"?

Answer
Hi Susan,
You will not be able to read the value in your concatenated field unless its stored in that text format.

Period ='07'
Concatenated data should be= "Per "&[Period]
