Whether you're preparing data for a seamless import into another program or structuring content for better readability, appending a comma to the end of Excel cell contents can be crucial. This guide will walk you through three practical approaches to effortlessly add a trailing comma to your cell data, enhancing your Excel proficiency and preparing your spreadsheets for any task at hand.


Add comma at end of cell/text with formula

This section will show you how to apply a formula to add a comma at the end of each cell in the selected range. Please follow the steps below.

  1. Click on a blank cell next to your data where you want the commas to be added. In this example, I'll use cell B2, adjacent to the first data cell. Enter the formula here and hit Enter.
    =A1&","
  2. Click on the cell with the formula and drag the Fill Handle downwards to apply the formula to the remaining cells.
Result

Now, you'll notice that each cell in this new column has a comma added to the end of the text.

Note: The following  CONCATENATE function can also help to accomplish this task:
=CONCATENATE(A2,",")
