I use Excel and Text to Columns to limit the bib record column to 8 digits rather than 9 (with the b included).
I then use Replace to change 'b' to 'http://cat.lib.grinnell.edu/record=b'
It is a pretty simplistic approach but using this method I don't have to worry about using the concatenate then copying the values only.

Here are the steps we use with create lists and excel:
To create the direct links to the catalog bib record, we export the bib record number to the excel file.
Create a column next to the bib record number column with:
This chops the check digit and appends are library catalog link to the front, and our scope to the back.
I then made a copy of only the values for the file we import to Serials Solutions in the next column.
Must say I found these instructions from someone in the listserv archives a while ago.
