I have cells of "built up" text strings like this:

="xy="&TEXT(O12,"0.0000")&","&TEXT(P12,"0.0000")

which, when displayed, look like this:
xy=2524950.0000,341717.0000

The problem is, I want the cells to look like this:
CadInputQueue.SendKeyin "xy=2524950.0000,341717.0000"

but Excel interprets the double-quotes as deliminters in the cell
formula.  I know how to get around this in a programming language
(using escape sequences), but I can't figure it out in "cell"
language.  Do you know how to do it?

Note: The format I am seeking is for copying then pasting into a
Microstation VBA module.
