Learn something new every day

So I just spent the last two hours trying to figure out how to add a column of text to a column of numerical values (so I can print out some plate arrays).

Turns out that Excel has an operation called "concatenate", which comes from a Latin word meaning "to link together in a series or chain". Who know, right?

Yes, I'm proud. I feel as if I've defeated Microsoft.

You can't defeat Microsoft. Finanical estimates (and I'm not making this up) indicate that M$ could run at its current state for a full seven years without any sort of income. Apple is teh sadz0rz.

why didn't you ask a certain fellow undergrad who works in your lab about the finer points of excel?
