How to concatenate cells and add space between words in Excel?

Normally, when you use the CONCATENATE function to combine several cell values, the contents will be joined together with no space. But, sometimes, you want to add the spaces to separate the contents after concatenation. In this case, how could you concatenate multiple cells into one cell and add spaces between the values in Excel?

Concatenate multiple cell values and add space or other delimiters between words with formulas

Supposing, I have the following three columns data, now, I need to concatenate the columns value with space separated to get the following result:

doc add space in concatenate 1

Here are some formulas may help you to solve this job. Please do as follows:

1. Enter this formula =CONCATENATE(A2," ",B2," ",C2) into a blank cell besides your data, E2, for instance, see screenshot:

doc add space in concatenate 2

2. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells that you want to contain this formula, and the cells in the same row have been concatenated by space at once, see screenshot:

doc add space in concatenate 3

Notes:

1. You can also apply this =A2&" "&B2&" "&C2 formula to combine the cells with space.

2. In the above formulas, A2, B2, C2 are the cells that you want to concatenate, if there are more cells needed to be combine, you just add the references after the formula, such as: =CONCATENATE(A2," ",B2," ",C2," ",D2," ",E2).

3. If you want to use other separator after concertation, for instance, use comma to separate, you can change the formula to =CONCATENATE(A2,",",B2,",",C2).
