Transpose and concatenate cells into one column with delimiter by formulas

You can transpose the cells first in a new sheet, and then apply a formula to concatenate them.

1. Select the cells you want to transpose, and press Ctrl + C to copy, and go to a new sheet, right click at B1, and choose Transpose from Paste Options in context menu. See screenshot:

2. In A1 of the new sheet, enter this formula =TRIM(CONCATENATE(B1," ",C1," ",D1," ",E1," ",F1," ",G1," ",H1," ",I1," ",J1," ",K1," ",L1," ",M1," ",N1," ",O1," ",
P1," ",Q1," ",R1," ",S1," ",T1," ",U1," ",V1," ",W1," ",X1," ",Y1," ",Z1," ")), press Enter key, and drag down to fill formula to the cells. See screenshot:

Here's a neat little formula that will take values in Column A and create a ";" (semicolon) separated value string in one cell. I have it so that the string starts new at every 25th cell, but if you want you could remove the if statement and have all values in one cell.
=IF(MOD(ROW(A2),25)=0,A2,F1&";"&A2). Column A is the source data. Column F is the output column.
