I am trying to write a piece of text in excel and within
the text have references to cells on a stats sheet.
I have been able to that but I am unable to format the
value.

For example:
="Total Spend in FY04 is $"&'Sub Select Stats'!F10&""
which appears like this
Total Spend in FY04 is $11878420.87    
I would like to make this easier to read by applying the
US Dollar Currency Format.
Is this possible as the value is part of a text string.    
                            
    

I would also like to format % values as they are
appearing as
"% value is 0.0534351145038168"

Appreciate your help.
