We’ll show you how to use this function to list unique values and text.

Ways to Concatenate in Microsoft Excel

A quick way to join two or more values together is by using the “&” (ampersand) operator. You specify the values you want to join with this sign, and Excel puts all your selected values in a single cell.

To use this method, first, launch your spreadsheet with Excel. Then select the cell in which you want to concatenate values.

Click A Cell In The Spreadsheet.

To join two or more values by typing them, use the formula as follows. Here, replace Mahesh and Makvana with the terms you want to join.

="Mahesh"&"Makvana"

Enter The Values To Join.

You can also take values from your cells and join them. To do so, use the following formula. Here, replace B2 and C2 with the cell references you want to use.

=B2&C2

Enter Cell References To Join.

You’ll notice that Excel doesn’t add a space between two values. You will have to add that space manually, and to do that, use the formula as below:

=B2&" "&C2

Join And Separate Cell References By A Space.

And that’s how you bring values from multiple cells together in a single cell.

Concatenate Using the CONCAT Function in Excel

To help you join your values, Excel also offers a function called CONCAT. This function replaces the legacy CONCATENATE function and allows you to merge your values in newer versions of Excel.

To use the function, open your spreadsheet with Excel. Then choose the cell in which you want to display the concatenation result.

By submitting your email, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Click A Cell In The Spreadsheet.

If you want to specify the values in the function itself, then type the function as follows. Here, replace Mahesh and Makvana with your own values that you want to join.

=CONCAT("Mahesh","Makvana")

Merge Values With Concat.
