When should you not use CHAR in Excel?

There are many instances where you should not use CHAR in Excel. One example is when you are trying to create a text string with a specific length. If you use CHAR, Excel will pad the string with spaces until it reaches the desired length, which may not be what you want. Another instance where you should not use CHAR is when you are trying to concatenate text strings. If you do not use CHAR, Excel will automatically concatenate the text strings, but if you use CHAR, Excel will insert a space between each text string.
