For example, you have a table as below screenshot shown, and you need to combine rows with the order IDs, any ideas? Here, this article will introduce two solutions for you.

Combine rows with same ID/name by VBA

This method will introduce a VBA to quickly combine all rows with the same ID or name in the specified selection. Please do as follows:

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and then paste the VBA code into the Module window.

VBA: Combine Rows with the Same ID/name in Excel

Sub Consolidate_Rows()
Dim xRg As Range
Dim xRows As Long
Dim I As Long, J As Long, K As Long
On Error Resume Next
Set xRg = Application.InputBox("Select Range:", "Kutools For Excel", Selection.Address, , , , , 8)
Set xRg = Range(Intersect(xRg, ActiveSheet.UsedRange).Address)
If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
xRows = xRg.Rows.Count
For I = xRows To 2 Step -1
For J = 1 To I - 1
If xRg(I, 1).Value = xRg(J, 1).Value And J <> I Then
For K = 2 To xRg.Columns.Count
If xRg(J, K).Value <> "" Then
If xRg(I, K).Value = "" Then
xRg(I, K) = xRg(J, K).Value
xRg(I, K) = xRg(I, K).Value & "," & xRg(J, K).Value
End If
End If
xRg(J, 1).EntireRow.Delete
I = I - 1
J = J - 1
End If
End Sub

3. Press the F5 key or click the Run button to run this VBA.

4. In the popping out Kutools for Excel dialog box, please select the rows you will combine, and click the OK button. See screenshot:

Now you will see the rows in the specified range are combined with commas by the same ID. See screenshot:

Note: This VBA can only combine rows by the values in the first column. For example you want to combine rows by the same name, you must move the name column to the first column of the specified range.
