How to concatenate cells from another sheet/different sheets in Excel?

In general, we apply CONCATENATE function to merge cells from the same worksheet. But sometimes you may need to concatenate cells from different worksheets in Excel, how do you easily solve it? This article shows two methods to help you get it done easily.


Concatenate cells from different sheets with formula

Normally we can apply the CONCATENATE function and specify cells from different worksheets one by one to concatenate them in Excel.

Select a blank cell you will put the concatenation result into, and enter the formula =CONCATENATE(Tea!A1," ",Coffee!A1," ",'Soft Drink'!A1," ",Milk!A1," ",Water!A1) (A1 is the cell whose content you will concatenate, Tea/Coffee/Soft Drink/Milk/Water are worksheet names containing the specific cell you need to concatenate) into it, and press the Enter key.
