Great one, but If you need to combine many columns into one that will be a painful operation.
You can use the STACKARRAY function: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stackarray-stack-all-colu/djkbffiggnmhgchmlejbfmghlidkajof
just write =STACKARRAY(the_array_to_combine) and that will just stack the columns

FILTER range must be a single row or a single column.

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.
