    I would like to get the merged column on a new sheet. How do I modify this formula so that it references the columns on another sheet.


    Thanks!

      Hello, NYeducator,
      To combine multiple columns data into one list in a new sheet, you just need to the following formula: (Note: Sheet3 is the sheet name that contains the columns data that you want to merge)
      =FILTER({Sheet3!A2:A7;Sheet3!B2:B8;Sheet3!C2:C8}, LEN({Sheet3!A2:A7;Sheet3!B2:B8;Sheet3!C2:C8}))
      Apply the above formula in a new sheet.

      Please try it, hope it can help you!

    Unfortunately this does not work in Google Sheets as it will place the data in one column beneath each other.

    Thank You!

    PS: modified to account for any future inputs in Columns A and/or B...

    =FILTER({A2:A;B2:B}, LEN({A2:A;B2:B}))

    Thanks again
