This method will guide you to concatenate data in each column with the Alt + Enter by a formula in Excel. Please do as follows:
1. Select a blank cell you will place the concatenation result, type the formula =A1 & CHAR(10) & A2 & CHAR(10) & A3, and drag the AutoFill Handle right to other cells as you need.
Note: In the formula =A1 & CHAR(10) & A2 & CHAR(10) & A3, A1, A2, and A3 are cells you will concatenate.
