2. Highlight the B1:J1&"," in the formula and press F9 key to replace cell references with cell contents.

3. Remove the curly braces { and } from the formula, and press the Enter key. See screenshot:

doc concatenate range with comma space linebreak 1

Note: In above formula, B1:J1 is the row you will concatenate, and "," means you will separate each cell content by comma. For separating by space, please replace the "," with “ “ in the formula.
