Thanks Eryk that solves the problem!  I actually did try with an extra
"$" but it didn't work so I assumed that I had misunderstood the
documentation.  Reading the documentation again, I think it could be
improved, perhaps

to force interpretation of a cell's value as a string, prefix the
identifier with two "$"s rather than a single "$"

instead of

to force interpretation of a cell's value as a string, prefix the
identifier with another "$", (e.g. @2$2 becomes $@2$2)

Thanks again,
