      Dear roy,
      Do you mean combine two datas in different rows into one row (the two datas still locating in different cells of same row after combining)?

    using kutools method on this can you drag the formula down the sheet like in regular excel? I have roughly 1210 rows on a sheet. every 4 rows has some customer data in it, that i need to combine in one cell (or row would work)

    Is there also a way to remove extra variable spaces between words. some lines have 3 to 15 spaces between words that dont need to be there. like.
