You can create a User Defined Function to solve this job, please do with the following steps:
1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
VBA code: Concatenate only visible cell values:
Private Function ConcatenateVisible(xRg As Variant, sptChar As String) 'Updateby Extendoffice 20160922 Dim rg As Range For Each rg In xRg If (rg.EntireRow.Hidden = False) And (rg.EntireColumn.Hidden = False) Then ConcatenateVisible = ConcatenateVisible & rg.Value & sptChar End If Next ConcatenateVisible = Left(ConcatenateVisible, Len(ConcatenateVisible) - Len(sptChar)) End Function
3. Then save and close this code, go back to the worksheet, and enter this formula: =concatenatevisible(B2:B10,"-") (B2:B10 is the filtered data range you want to combine, “-” is the separator to separate the combined values, you can change them to your need.) into a blank cell where you want to locate the combined result, and then press Enter key to get the result. See screenshot:
Note: With this User Defined Function, the combined result will be changed with your filtered data dynamically, for example, if you filter the Product of KTO, your combined result will be changed to the new filtered data. See screenshot:
