Solution 1 / Operator &

Operator & is used for joining values as text strings.

Two types of values:

2)      Your specific text has to be in quotes (“-”)

Insert operator & between the values you want to join.

Solution 2 / CONCATENATE

Concatenate belongs to Text functions and it is very easy to use it.
