I'm not familiar with python and I have a basic question about simple field calculations in python rather than VB. This is needed because I have a model I am exporting to python for task scheduler. My model runs fine in ArcMap but when I run it as a python script it cannot complete the field calculation in VB expression form. Any help converting the following to a python expression would be appreciated

VB Expression to convert (field is stored as float):

[Prev_Total] & " boxes collected"

This is to be calculated in a string field.
