How to move multiple cells into one in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-07

We can easily split a cell into multiple columns with Text to Column feature in Excel, but how to move multiple cell values into one cell? Copying all cells one by one seems not a good way! This article will introduce several tricky solutions for you.

Move multiple cells into one with Clipboard

We can copy a range of cells into the Clipboard, and then paste these cell values into a single cell easily. Please do as follows:

1. Enable the Clipboard pane with clicking the anchor at the bottom-right corner of Clipboard group on the Home tab. See left screenshot:

2. Select the range of cells you will move to a single cell, and copy it with pressing the Ctrl + C keys in a meanwhile. Now the range of cell is added into the Clipboard pane.

3. Double click into the destination cell that you will move these cell values into, and then click the copied range in the Clipboard pane.

Then the copied cell values are moved into the destination cell at once.

Note: The cell values are separated by space and new line in the destination cell as above screenshot shown.

Move multiple cells into one with formula

Of course we can move multiple cell values into a single cell with formula. Please do as follows:

Select the destination cell that you will move cell values into, and enter the formula =CONCATENATE(A1,",",B1,",",A2,",",B2,",",A3,",",B3,",",A4,",",B4,",",A5,",",B5) into it, and press the Enter key. See screenshot:

Note: In above formula, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and B1, B2, B3, B4, B5 are cells you will move values into a single cell, “,” means you will separate these cell values with comma. You can change all of them based on your needs.
