I'm using a Formula similar to following in order to generate a text including a number from another cell:

="This is a test only. Following number should be formated as currency: " & A41 & " Unfortunately this number losses its original format."

Does anybody know how I can format this number as part of the text? Thanks for your help.

Try the spreadsheet function TEXT which converts a number to text and allows you to specify the format.
