How to concatenate columns with Alt + Enter in Excel?

Let’s say you have a list of data in Excel, but now you want to concatenate the list with separating by Alt + Enter, how could you handle it? Here I will share two solutions to solve this problem.

Concatenate columns with Alt + Enter by formula

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.

2. Keep the formula cell selected, and click Home > Wrap Text.

Now you will see each column is concatenated with Alt + Enter. See screenshot:
