How to join text from different cells into one cell in Excel?
If you have multiple cells that contain text and you want to join or merge them in one cell as following screenshot shown, normally, the Concatenate function can help you join the text from different cells into one destination cell. This article will talk about some methods to deal with this task with details.
Applying the Concatenate function to join the different cell contents, please do as follows:
1. Enter this formula: =CONCATENATE(A2,"-",B2,"-",C2) into a blank cell next to your data, see screenshot:
2. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells that you want to join, and the different cells have been merged into one cell by the separator “-”, see screenshot:
Note: If there are more cells needed to be merged together, please join the cell references as this: =CONCATENATE(A2,"-",B2,"-",C2, "-",D2,"-",E2,…), and the “-” separator in the formula can be modified as you need.
