Do Anything with Text in Formulas

itCONCATULA

Evaluates a concatenated formula, or any other all-text formula in which the operator is text.

Evaluates any of the following arithmetic and comparison operators: +, -, *, ^, /, =, <>, <=, >=.

Syntax

itCONCATULA(text_formula)

 text_formula Required. The text formula to evaluate.Must be in the form . Can accept a leading equal sign ("="), but does not require one. Any other leading operator will result in an error. Accepts the following operators: +, -, *, ^, /, =, <>, <=, >=. In addition, ><, =<, and => are accepted and treated as <>, <=, and >= respectively. Does not accept parentheses.

Examples

Formula Description Result
=itCONCATULA("1+2") Evaluate the formula 1+2 and return the result. 3
=itCONCATULA(A1&B1&C1)

 A B C 1 1 + 2
Evaluate the formula created by concatenating "1", "+", and "2", and return the result. 3
=itCONCATULA("=1.23+200.1") Evaluate the formula =1.23+200 and return the result. 201.33
=itCONCATULA("1>=2") Evaluate the formula 1>=2 and return the result. FALSE
=itCONCATULA("3^(1/5)") Evaluate the formula 3^(1/5) (the fifth root of 3) and return the result. #VALUE!
itCONCATULA cannot accept parentheses. See next example for how to evaluate an nth root using the power ("^") operator.
=itCONCATULA("3^"&itCONCATULA("1/5")) Evaluate the formula 3^(1/5) (the fifth root of 3) and return the result. 1.24573093961552
